The competitive mountain-man eating continues throughout the day with fresh baked cookies, hors d'oeuvres and wine in the early evening, and various liqueurs and See's chocolates late at night.

When Big Bear Alpine Zoo opened in 1959, it wasn't a zoo at all. It was a makeshift rehabilitation center for animals affected by a devastating fire that ripped through the San Bernardino National Forest. Among the facility's first residents were two bobcats and an orphaned 30-pound baby black bear.
Since then, the operation has stood as a safe haven for injured, orphaned, and imprinted wild animals. While the zoo is home to a variety of animals that cannot be released back into the wild as they would not be able to survive, most of the animals that are brought in for rehabilitation can be released. In fact, 90% of the zoo's animals get released back into the wild once they're healthy enough. Today, Big Bear Alpine Zoo is home to more than 85 species, including foxes, eagles, and yes, even bears. Weather permitting, visitors can visit the zoo's residents throughout the year except for Christmas Day. Visitors can get involved in the zoo's efforts by volunteering, becoming a member, or bringing in items from the wish list, saving the animals a trip to the grocery store.
It's about 100 miles east of Hollywood, but Big Bear Valley has played a starring role in several movies, from westerns such as Paint Your Wagon and Bonzanza to Dr. Dolittle. There's no doubt the setting is camera-worthy: Big Bear Mountain creates a stunning backdrop, and the San Bernardino National Forest sprawls for miles. Right in the middle of this forested idyll, Big Bear Lakefront Lodge offers a cozy rest stop amid a wealth of outdoor recreation and just minutes from Magic Mountain Recreation Area's go-carts, year-round alpine sledding, and summertime water slides. Just outside the lodge on Big Bear Lake, boats and jet skis are available for rental, or you can park your personal watercraft or motorized kiddie pool at their onsite boat dock. Parasailing over the lake is another popular pursuit. On land, leisure time is filled with horseback riding on the Pacific Crest Trail and off-road tours of the San Bernardino Mountains. Within the lodge, guests can refuel with a cookout in the picnic area or take a short drive to savor smoked ribs and fresh-caught seafood at one of Big Bear's local haunts.
