    • Restrictions

      Weight Restriction: Maximum weight for bike rentals is 270 lb.
      eBike Restrictions: Big Bear Mountain Resort has approval from the U.S. Forest Service to allow class 1 pedal-assist electric mountain bikes (e-bikes/e-mtb) at Summit Bike Park.

      For the uninitiated, e-bikes are bicycles equipped with a battery-powered “assist” that can be engaged while pedaling. When you pedal on an e-bike, the electric battery kicks in and provides additional pedaling power. E-bikes are a great option for beginners, riders with physical limitations, or anyone looking for a boost while riding -- from uphill ascents to all-day expeditions.

      E-bikes will be permitted on the following Summit Bike Park trails.

      Blue Steel
      Miracle Mile
      Party Wave
      Small Wonder
      Turtle Trail
      Going Green
      Fall Line
      Fern Trail
      Towne Trail
      Chair 1
      Chair 2
      Chair 4
      NOTE: E-bikes are not allowed on any non-motorized USFS trails in the valley but are permitted on all roads and trails that are open to motor vehicles. All bikes will be inspected prior to loading on chairlifts. Class 2 and 3 e-bikes are not permitted on lifts or Big Bear Mountain Resort trails.
