(KGTV) — It's beginning to look a lot like winter in Southern California already.

Big Bear Snow Play spent Wednesday making snow for the 2019-2020 season, as Big Bear Lake's temperatures dipped into the low 20s overnight into Thursday.

The tubing destination plans to open for the season Saturday, Nov. 2, and remain open on Saturdays and Sundays until Nov. 11, when daily operations will resume. This weekend, temperatures are expected to reach a high of 53 degrees and a low of 23 degrees.

The tubing spot was once known as a ski hill called "Rebel Ridge." The area includes the longest runs in Southern California, according to the sports center.

Entry to the lifts costs $35 for general admission and $20 for children 36- to 42-inches tall.
