This holiday season had to be a record breaker for tourists visiting big bear.
I've heard that many locals are really angry....
There was supposed to be a meeting at city hall to limit the amount of people visiting big bear...when you can't even get to the store....we have a problem.
I'm well aware we need the money,..but enough is enough.....
We need a break.

Don't go to the markets after the lifts close unless you just want to laugh at the tourists.

Yeah it's been this bad before, it's actually been worse. A few years ago when we had that couple feet of snow around the holidays it was chaotic. It's not that bad really, it's all mostly all snow players.... resorts have been busy, but not this kind of busy. Just need to know when to travel and how to get there!

After today, things will somewhat return to normal! !yay

I don't know why it always comes down to "Big Bear is a tourist town so they can do anything they want" and "We have to do something" butting heads. There ARE problems caused by the tourists and their sheer numbers. There are ALSO solutions to a lot of those problems! It hasn't always been like this and I'm willing to bet the majority of those who've been here a long time don't base all their income on tourists. Those who came here to get rich off of tourists should probably start looking for another place where that will actually happen. If we continue to let the tourists rule and we don't deal with the problems then eventually the valley will be someplace that NO ONE wants to live or visit. It's time to find those solutions and make it so our elected officials have to enforce them. There are examples of mountain towns who have done this and are successfully making tourists and locals happy. Vail anyone?

They've been doing traffic control in Moonridge, at both resorts. But all these visitors are not up here to ski & snowboard, so it's not a resort thing. The majority are snow players, day trippers coming up just to play in the snow.

The chain up outside the moose last nigh was crazy.. some said they did not chains but got kicked out of their rental and were headed down anyway hence the chaos on the AC. The traffic down 38 this morning 10am wasn’t bad, the uphill was bumper to bumper from before AO to jerks lake. Those folks should be headed down soon.

If the city was allowed to restrict visitors/tourists, how would someone get on the invitation list?

I feel bad for bringing this up again earlier this morning. I was off line all day yesterday so didn't see about Benny's thread. Good idea to keep it all in one place for easy referencing back in case someone actually can come up with a good idea and can use the thread as evidence to make proposals to the powers that be. I copied my earlier post and added a bit to it in the "Big Bear Snowplay" thread. I do think a little quick cross traffic between here and there might be a good thing though.
