PRESS RELEASE: Summit Bike Park

Southern California’s premier lift-served bike park, Summit Bike Park located at Snow Summit in Big Bear Lake, is scheduled to open for the 2021 summer season on Thursday, June 10, for pass holders and Friday, June 11, for the general public. 2021 Summit Bike Park season passes are on sale now, but only available for a limited time, so be sure to get yours before sales go offline July 6.

After a successful ski/snowboard season that saw winter operations go until April 11, the Summit Trail Crew has been hard at work over the last several weeks digging out trails and dialing in the dirt with some new berm work and wooden features on rider favorites Turtle Trail and Party Wave.

In the base area, a new dual slalom course is scheduled to debut this summer, with a little help from our pal Kyle Strait, along with a new Full Throttle kids zone for pint-sized pedalers featuring STACYC ebikes available for rent with 12” or 17” wheels. STACYC bikes are a great way to get the kiddos comfy on two wheels and give them a little extra boost to power themselves around the track.

After a 1-year hiatus due to the pandemic, the FOX US Open of Mountain Biking is set to return to Summit Bike Park, Sept. 23-26. The 2021 edition will again bring the world’s best mountain biking talent to Big Bear to compete in downhill, youth racing, and more. The event is free for spectators and registration information will be available soon.

Debuting in 2020, class 1 ebikes are now permitted on select trails at Summit Bike Park with a limited amount of rental ebikes available at the Summit Bike Park rental shop. To guarantee availability be sure to book in advance or stop by the Big Bear Mountain Resort Visitors Center Station (40824 Big Bear Blvd.) during your next trip to the mountains for more info.

 @greenpistol: Breaking bumps and pot holes in the berms everywhere. It's still fun when the trails aren't beat up. Bring tools because it beats up your bike. Bolts will come loose. Skypark on the other hand has trails groomed to perfection all the time.

 @greenpistol: I wouldn't say it sucks but it's not angelfire or anything. I like to think of it as flagstaff shuttles but with a lift. I use it as a warmup because it usually opens up before SS and is less than half the drive to angelfire for me.

 Snow Summit is fun. Sure, it can get blown out and more trail variety would be nice, but it’s the only option for lift access mtb on SoCal and who knows, you might find yourself riding up the left with locals, Gwin Aaron, Lyle Straight or Dylan Stark.

 Snow valley does lift service now as well. Haven’t ridden there but it seems like they are adding quality trails. Pretty sandy terrain from videos though

 They're going to finally have those 10 trails that they promised when SS "re-opened" like 10 years ago, right? Oh wait...

 I don't think it's their fault. The forest service limits them and seems to have a hair up their ass about MTB trails.....they'll totally ignore the fact that Summit and all the other ski resorts all have vast swathes of trees and land clear cut for ski runs. It's already sacrificial land. So frustrating.

 No it's not their "fault", but it's what they advertised, and used as justification to the public when they nuked all the off-the-map fun trails out in the trees that we were enjoying (and were frankly 10x better than anything they've built since then). They overpromised, and haven't delivered.
