The San Bernardino National Forest offers many recreational opportunities in the winter! Unlike some of the wildlife that live within them, America’s public land / recreation areas do not hibernate for the winter. Rather, many of these areas are open to a host of recreational opportunities unique to the season. Cross-country and downhill skiing as well as snowshoeing, snowboarding, and snowplay are just a few of the activities that you can enjoy on public lands. Licensing, fees and seasonal restrictions vary from site to site.

Practice Good Stewardship of our Public Lands
You can help to take good care of our public lands so that others may enjoy these areas for years to come by practicing some of the following actions:
Don’t Litter… take along a trash bag or other receptacle for collecting your trash so that you can deposit it in the proper trash receptacle.
Don’t recreate in areas where you are not permitted. These areas have been declared “off limits” to recreational users to protect wildlife, vegetation, or for your safety.
Forest Adventure Pass is required to park in designated areas on the San Bernardino National Forest while you are playing in the snow, visit the Adventure Pass website to find out more about the pass, where it is required and how to purchase the pass.
