Big Bear Lake Information

Postby BigBearHostel » Sun Apr 10, 2011 12:02 am

Grayson here (real name)

I run the Big Bear Hostel.

I started a hostel in Big Bear for outdoorsy people to come up and ski/snowboard/paddle/mountain bike etc.. I didn't even know what the PCT was. Then stinky people started showing up in May!!

Oddly enough, I was born with no sense of smell!
A match made in heaven? Destiny? Coincidence?

This will be our third year really trying to cater to PCT hikers.
We offer a thru hiker discount, rides in from the trail, a warm bed in a dorm or a private room for 1-6 people, trail magic and more!

Once again I would like to offer any supporting Angels a free place to stay in Big Bear from now through May. Giving rides to PCT hikers from the trail head is quite a task and we can use all the help we can get. So send us your unemployed friends, past hikers, groupies, angels etc.. Preferably with a car!

Anyway, we have our first few 2011 hiker guests this year, already in Big Bear, and the ski resorts are still open!

I guess I am probably late in posting this since y'all plan so far ahead but here goes.
This link should get you most of the information you need if you are planning to stay with us:

I plan to be at the kickoff weekend and look forward to meeting this years crazy hikers!


PS, anyone who reads this, please give reply with your ETA to Big Bear.. I'm curious when most people will be coming through.

Enjoy the view!
