    With another Hot Dawgz & Hand Rails in the rearview, the Trail Crew is making sure all trails are in top condition and ready to ride this weekend. The forecast looks stellar, with clear skies and moderate temps, so grab some friends and head for the hill.

    The Crew’s main focus this week has been on Miracle Mile – our traditional DH run – which can get a little chunky and chattery during a long, dry summer of racing and riding. If you haven't rolled the Mile recently, hit it up this weekend for a ride that's equal parts exacting and exciting.

    The Crew was also able to revisit all of the core trails early in the week, leaving the rest of the week to dial in the base area.

    Speaking of Hot Dawgz & Hand Rails, things went off in a big way last weekend over at Bear Mountain. Take a minute to check out the highlights in this week's video clip.
    We'll see you on the dirt.

    The switch over to fall operating hours has allowed our Trail Crew to have full access to the Park’s core trails and prep them for your weekend riding. Keep in mind the Summit Bike Park is open for your fall riding Friday through Sunday. Sunday, October 22nd will be our final day of operation this season.

    Your Cross Country Guide

    Take advantage of the cooler days to plan a cross country adventure. Our Mountaintop Trailhead has access to 60+ miles of incredible mountain biking and hiking. Whether headed east or west, the Skyline Trail is one of the most popular. Peddling west will bring you to Grandview Point and amazing views of the San Gorgonio and San Bernardino mountains. From there your options are almost endless. A local favorite is to backtrack east, pass the resort and hook up with one of our Adopt-A-Trails like Fall Line or Ferns.

    Come join us this weekend. Basecamp activities are open, so pack up the whole gang and make a weekend of it.

    We’ll see you on the dirt.

    Labor Day usually signals the unofficial end of summer and beginning of fall, and Mother Nature has been happy to oblige with cooler temps and intermittent showers this week.

    Our Trail Crew has been getting ready for the holiday weekend by giving the Bike Park a thorough once-over to make sure all the trails are in top shape and ready to ride.

    There’s been a lot of excitement in the Skill Builder Park this summer. From the Pro Line to the Pump Track, there’s something for everyone, including the Small Wonder beginner line, which is great for first-time riders, or if you just want a quick warm-up before heading out to more challenging trails and terrain.

    To access Small Wonder, take Chair 4 and head back down under the chairlift. You'll find bank turns, paved corners, small rock gardens, rollers, and more to prepare you for what you'll find in the Bike Park. Once you’re comfortable on Small Wonder it's time to check out some more advanced terrain on Chair 1.

    If you’re looking for a great deal on a Trek bike, stop by the Adventure Academy this weekend and put down a deposit on one of our custom rental bikes. Select models come with a season pass for the remainder of the summer and you’ll be able to pick up your bike on Labor Day weekend so you can put it to good use.

    With many SoCal schools back in session, now is a great time to hit the hill mid-week and take advantage of the open slopes and short lift lines. We’ll be operating daily through Labor Day weekend before transitioning to weekend-only operations, Friday – Sunday, through the end of October.
    Come enjoy the end of summer and welcome fall at the Summit Bike Park.

    This week, Turtle Trail gets a touch-up and we're raising the bar for the final Summit Series competition of the season.

    While trails like Party Wave and Westridge get the lion’s share of love from riders, you'll have just as much fun with less crowded runs and endless berms on Turtle Trail, which our Trail Crew extended to the top of Chair 1 last season to give riders an intermediate trail option from the top of the hill. This week the Crew gave the trail a complete rebuild, so be sure to check it out.

    This Saturday is the last Summit Series of the season, featuring a High Air contest. The rules are simple – whoever clears the tallest height without knocking over the bar wins. Whether competing or spectating, this contest is always a favorite. Riders can register to compete in the base area Saturday morning, with practice from 11:30 a.m. – 12:30 p.m. and the competition starting at 1 p.m.

    Hey, you guys! If you’re sticking around for the weekend, join us Saturday night in the Summit base area for a free screening of The Goonies (PG, 114 min.) as part of our Movies in the Meadow series. The show starts at 8 p.m., with seating available on a first-come, first-served basis, concessions available at Bighorn Smokehouse, and a Truffle Shuffle contest following the movie. Winner gets a GoPro 5!
    It’s gonna be a high-flying, berm riding, Goonies-never-say-die(ing) weekend.
    We'll see you on the dirt.
