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.

Don't blame me! I was left unsupervised!

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?

I'm not happy about Vail's $209/day lift ticket price.

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 am not a flatlander but I do have a flat head.... forgot where I was going with this. Anyway, have a great Sunday everyone. Oh, I know, visit the Museum, sit in the shade with a cool sarsaparilla, and have a nice time. Yea, that was it.

From the other side of the coin: I was driving DTH, going the speed limit and had a line of cars in front of me. A old jeep came up on me very fast so I planned to use the next turnout. He didn't give me time to get there and he passed (illegally) on a curve only to nearly rear end the next car in line. He screamed at me as he went by. Did he have a woman in labor in the car? What on earth could be important enough to risk a head on collision? This isn't the only time I've had this happen over the years but it's usually a sports car. For those of you that flash you lights at me when I use the turnout for you...thanks! I always say" ahhh...you're welcome!" out loud. My dog probably thinks I'm insane. She could be right.

I drive the Idyllwild road from Palm Desert, faster than most. I am more comfortable on mountain roads than freeways, but if someone is behind me, ill gladly let them pass, or ill pull over.

Tlingit! I just think we all need to obey the law! If you want to drive slow, then pull over! That’s all

wolfman If you go to the CA DMV webpage you can obtain the information for Driving laws in 103 languages!! When you go into a DMV office to pick up a Driver's Lic handbook, you can barely find an English one but they have one for every language listed. In each of those books there is clearly stated about the turnouts. Just like you and I if we have California Driver's License we are signing off to knowing all these laws and nowadays anyone can get a license. SO maybe during busy season some more CHP monitoring is needed which also generates income for the State so people get the message. To put a sign up with all the languages would obstruct the beautiful views of the mountains. If a poll be taken I would bet that 99% of the people who speed up etc speck only English! Can I mention!fanit dumb drivers again?
