Summit Estates is the immediate area bordering Snow Summit Ski Resort to the south. This area was mostly developed in the 70s and 80s and offers a wide variety of homes to choose from. From tiny A-frames, to spacious ski chalets, to authentic log cabins, to more contemporary construction, this neighborhood is an eclectic mix of architectural types.
The main draw to this area is its proximity to skiing, snowboarding, and mountain biking at Snow Summit Resort. It also borders "Town Trail", one of the most popular hiking and biking trails in the valley. The general area is relatively flat and is centrally located making it convenient for accessing shopping, Big Bear Lake, and The Village. Because of these features, homes in Summit Estates generally do well on vacation rental programs.
Homes in this area usually range from the high $200,000 to high $500,000. Most properties are somewhat older but many retain a unique, classic ski-home feel.
