My 'Swiss Chalet at the Slopes' of Snow Summit is the newest, most affordable, and... most versatile vacation home in Big Bear Lake and is now ready to start taking reservations for the winter season; just in time for this year's snow play.
DETAILED PROPERTY DESCRIPTION:
LOCATION, LOCATION, LOCATION:
This 1 - 2 Bedroom Swiss Chalet condo is located right next door to the Snow Summit ski and snowboard resort and is close to the Village, Big Bear Lake, excellent restaurants and shops, and two major grocery stores. There is also a nice hospital, library, post office, and sheriff's station very close as well as the Moonridge Zoo and golf course, a sports park and beach. There are hundreds of bike and hiking trails, with the Town Trail only a few steps away. You are very close to major banks and super close to the 7-Eleven convenience store open 24/7 with gas. Snow plows are always in this particular area first because of it's proximity to the resort and so all of this makes for the perfect location for your family's ultimate mountain vacation.
The "Swiss Chalet at the Slopes' can sleep anywhere from 2 - 5guests with spectacular views of the slopes and is beautifully decorated, extremely comfortable, and very well equipped.
The themed Swiss décor is what you would expect from an authentic Swiss Chalet complete with old wooden skis, snow shoes, vintage ice skates, Swiss clocks, and yes a few, welcoming bears here and there for a little fun.
All the living and dining rooms of this 3 condo complex have incredible views of Snow Summit's beautiful slopes and resort and is equally impressive in the evenings when Snow Summit turns on their beautiful "Night Skiing" lights along the main runs.
This ski chalet home has a large, wood burning fireplace to enjoy while you recline and relax in the popular vibrating, massage chair to sooth your muscles from a day on the slopes. Enjoy while you watch that very important football or basketball game on the large, flat screen TV with available DVD player, and all while sipping a glass of your favorite wine. A favorite ritual of mine and with many of my return guests.
For your convenience, Wireless Internet and Cable are also included as well as an IPod charging station and player with built in stereo and CD player. There are several charging USB ports located throughout the home. There are a few good DVDs to choose from as well as a Red Box at Von's to rent the latest movie rentals in case you didn't bring your own favorites. .
After preparing a great evening meal or ordering a quick pizza for delivery, choose to play some of the many terrific board games, bumper pool, or your hand at poker with Las Vegas style chips while enjoying a cup of hot chocolate or coffee while still enjoying the spectacular view.
When it is finally time to retire for the evening, you will truly enjoy the beautiful, themed Bedrooms' with flat screen TV and DVD players, and cool winter décor like a bobsled that doubles as a place to store and charge your cell phone and ipod for the evening while you rest up for the next day on the slopes.
In the living rooms, there is also a queen sofa bed plus an additional large ottoman with pull out twin bed that both come with all the bedding necessary for a good nights sleep.
NOTE: Also available is an additional bedroom called the "St. Moritz Master Suite" with a comfortable Queen bed with luxury linens, a flat screen TV, DVD player, a comfortable futon that opens up as a full bed, a separate gas heater, and beautiful Swiss décor and art work to enjoy at an additional nightly rate. See details below.
The convenient double entry kitchen to the dining and hall way includes all appliances and is well equipped with a gas burning stove, oven, microwave, fridge/freezer, dishwasher, toaster, coffee maker, blender, mixer, crockpot, and new dishware, flatware, pots and pans, as well as all the baking dishes for your favorite cookies, brownies, and cakes. With a full size kitchen right next door to the slopes, it is especially convenient for coming back to the Chalet for lunch and saving huge amounts of money on resort meals while skiing. All my guests love this and is especially popular with the grandparent who doesn't ski.
There is a full bathroom that is great for small kids that still like to take baths and is well stocked with large fluffy bath towels and ski décor, however there are 6 more additional bathrooms and bedrooms available at an additional rate.
Your stay includes all bedding and linens and a few basics like hand soap, bath soap bars, a few rolls of TP to get you started, and a roll of paper towels.
Whether you are skiers, snowboarders, or summer mountain bikers looking for the perfect chalet next to the slopes, a couple looking for a romantic get away, or a family wanting to do some fishing and boating as well as all the other water sports that Big Bear Lake has to offer, all will love the many year round adventures that my "Swiss Chalet at the Slopes" offers. Perhaps you are on a girls weekend out that includes a day at the spa, shopping in the village, antiquing with an array of vintage shops and consignment boutiques, or tearing it up on the dancefloor at terrific music venues after hitting the local restaurants and pubs. Whatever your taste, Big Bear Lake has it all and is truly a four season getaway.
As a die hard skier and former ski instructor, I of course love the ease of simply walking out the front door and in only a few steps, I'm on the lift to my favorite runs. I also enjoy the many other activities and fresh air that can only be found in Big Bear Lake.
Some of my favorite attractions beside all of the above is visiting the Big Bear Zoo, the Discovery Center with it's terrific summer concert series, the performing arts center with a host of plays and musicals, a convention center that offers line dancing every week, hundreds of hiking trails, golf, tennis, horseback riding, zip lining, and all the special events throughout the year that makes Big Bear Lake an extra special home away from home.
CHOOSE WHICH WAY TO RESERVE:
Reserving as a 1 br. 1 ba. is one of the most popular ways to stay in my "Swiss Chalet at the Slopes" and is already included in the posted rates throughout the year and will accommodate most of my guests needs for a terrific get away.
However...there is great news. My "Swiss Chalet at the Slopes" can also be reserved in two other ways:
* As a 2 Br. 2 Ba. chalet to sleep family and/or friends more spaciously by adding the 'St. Moritz Master Suite' to your stay for an additional nightly rate of $150.00 per night, which is up and above the 1 br. 1 ba. rates throughout the year that is already posted on the listing by clicking on the rates tab at the top of the site just under the photos.
* as only a hotel like room called the "St. Moritz Master Suite" with your own private entrance . (This is normally reserved for owner's regular use but can be made available more easily on weeknights)
Please click on the rates tab above to see all rates and fees throughout the year prior to e-mailing your requested dates so that you are aware of the actual rates and all fees as only a one bedroom one bath with living room and kitchen which includes the beautiful views of the slopes located right next door to Snow Summit Ski and Snowboard Resort.
***So remember there are a total of 3 ways to reserve your stay:
1. As a 1 br. 1 ba. Chalet with the included seasonal rates already listed on the site. (Sleeps up to 5) and is again the most popular and preferred way to reserve.
2. As an optional 2 br. 2 ba. Chalet by adding on the "St Moritz Master Suite".
3. As a large hotel-like suite that only includes the "St. Moritz Master Suite" during weeknights for a rate of only $150.00 per night. (Sunday-Thursday nights)
Please e-mail owner for all details and savings and simply indicate your choice of how you would like to reserve your stay as well as your basic travel plans.
The "Swiss Chalet at the Slopes" is located right next door to Snow Summit Mountain Resort and is just a quick, free shuttle ride away from Bear Mountain. Both locations make up Southern California's best ski/snowboard resort and is only a click away for you to enjoy this true, Swiss Chalet experience at the best possible location.
See you on the slopes...
Hello, I'm Loretta Marie, and I am so happy you chose to view my beautiful 'Swiss Chalet at the Slopes' of Snow Summit. I have several other rental properties located at the beach in Southern California and so I offer you this wonderful mountain home with not only years of experience, but a great desire to provide another wonderful, home away from home, experience.
My family and I have traveled from the beach to Big Bear Lake to ski and snowboard for several decades now. We had wanted to purchase a home next to the slopes of Snow Summit each time we rented a vacation home and have looked at thousands of properties throughout the years. Finally, we found this beautiful, Swiss Chalet we are now proud to call home.
As like with every other snow loving family, we want to continue to enjoy our Snow Summit adventures with the next generation and so we look forward to making new memories here at our 'Swiss Chalet' for many years to come. We hope you will join us in creating these new memories with your own family and friends at Snow Summit Ski resort's most versatile and affordable Swiss Chalet that can be reserved in three ways to accommodate almost any size family or just a couple looking to get away.
There will be no more trying to get a decent parking spot, paying high prices for meals at the resort... unless you really want to, or waiting in long lines or on the phone to get your lift tickets at peak hours.
For a relaxing stay at our 'Swiss Chalet', simply purchase your groceries for the week and then ski or snowboard with out ever driving again... unless we really want to.
This will be wonderful for families with kids of all ages, snow boarders in college, skiers who want the best, and couples looking for romantic views of the slopes, day or night.

Took the one bedroom option with great living room view to the slopes and resort. Very comfortable, clean, and well kept condo in the perfect location right next to the slopes. It came with a brand new large, flat screen TV and the wireless internet connection was also great for the little bit of work I had to complete from the office, Loved the ipod player, numerous USB charging ports, and the reclining massage chair used every night after skiing. We had friends join us for a few nights and enjoyed playing poker with the cool poker table and Vegas style chips, the bumper pool, and the assortment of board games to choose from. Loretta was a knowledgeable, friendly host that went out of her way with providing us a bottle of wine, skiing tips as a retired ski instructor, and also helped me get my chains on car. I have stayed in a lot of cabins throughout Big bear and this is by far the best overall place to stay if you ski or snowboard.. I already booked another stay in March and can't wait to return.
Arrived to a perfectly located cabin next to the slopes of Snow Summit, very clean unit and cozy. We even got a Valentines gift of our favorite beer in the fridge! Just walked thru the snow valley parking lot and were skiing! If you forget anything in the cabin it's right there to go back too. Loretta was very helpful before and during our stay. Cozy fireplace to snuggle up next too. I even offered to buy this unit from her since I thought it was so nice and perfectly located.
My husband and I brought our twin, 14 year old boys for a ski weekend and have now found our new winter home. It was clean and well decorated with cool Swiss wooden skis, snow shoes, and even a bob sled . The location can't be beat. We loved that we could just ski right next door and come home for lunch and then go back to the slopes for an afternoon session. This definitely saved us a lot of money on meals. Not having to pack the skis and snowboard in the car and then not having to fight for a parking spot and pay the new Snow Summit parking fees was especially great. Each day after skiing, my husband went straight for the reclining massage chair and relaxed while watching the flat screen TV, the boys played bumper pool, and I got dinner ready. The kitchen had everything I needed including a blender for smoothies and a mixer for making brownies. The "Swiss" décor and crackling fire and fun board games each night made for a real cozy, comfy stay. We watched a different DVD each night to end our evening and then slept comfortably in the two queen beds. Our stay was especially nice because of our host, Loretta. She was super friendly and went out of her way to make sure we had every thing we needed and all the information. She cared to know that we arrived safely to the Chalet and back home again after we checked out. When we arrived, she welcomed us with a quick call and a nice bottle of wine (Merlot) that she left for us in a cute pair of cuddly bears on the cool wine rack table. She also left a little candy for the boys to enjoy as well. Thank you Loretta for such a terrific stay. We can't wait to come back. Maybe with our best friends so we sill likely want the Master bedroom suite as well.
This condo is located directly across the parking lot from Snow Summit for ease of getting to the ski lifts. However the windows look directly into the parking lot 10 yards away so privacy is out. The condo itself is old and in despair. Tenants in the units above are numerous and loud. There is no sound insulation between the floors resulting in unbearable excessive noise. Today the upstairs is rented out to over 10 people with children running and yelling. The coffee maker was dirty and the water dispenser had black mold. The kitchen clothes were unwashed and had food stains. Finally We would not recommend staying here given the above and that for the price far superior accommodations are available. When we asked the landlord to do something about the noise the landlord stated it was up to us to complain to the other landlord. When we asked that we would just leave and not to bill us for the last day stay, the landlord refused to credit us rather than being accommodating.
Amazing location for Snow Summit. Walk to lifts. Very cozy and comfy condo. Everything you need. Loretta is a very friendly and caring host. Only small issues are no laundry on premises and cable tv systems are challenging to decipher. So watch tv at home. To wake up, suit up and be at the lifts less than 5 minutes after finishing your coffee is the magic.
Everything was excellent. We really enjoyed our vacation. You got a pretty nice place with everything that is needed to have a good time.
