When you think of Big Bear mountain resort, snowboarders and skiers come to mind. However, when summer rolls around, it is converted into an awesome bike park that has to be experienced by every mountain biker. You can elect to climb to the summit for a great training ride (elevation is over 7000 at the start) or simply take the lifts. At the top, you can choose from 3 descents ranging from beginning to advanced. There is something for everyone depending on your skill level, but don’t be deceived; even the beginning level descent is quite a workout! If visiting Bear Mountain bike park for the first time, we highly encourage you to try the beginning descent first.
