Enjoy mountain biking lessons with your whole crew. During a group mountain biking lesson, each participant will be placed in a class based on ability. Choose between Cross-Country or Freeride mountain biking during check in. Group lessons typically do not exceed 6 students. Guests looking for a smaller class size than what is offered for a group lesson should book a private lesson.

Must book at least 24 hours in advance. Guests may book at the Snow Summit ticket window day-of if product is still available.

Beginner vs Intermediate/Advanced Options

We recommend beginner group lessons if you have never tried mountain biking before, never been on a chairlift, or need assistance with shifting and/or braking. We recommend intermediate/advance group lessons if you can comfortably ride the chairlift and navigate most beginner and low intermediate trails and if you are confident riding on all terrain, including steep and challenging features.

Using Gift Cards, ACV, and other Forms of Payment
Gift Cards, Pass Holder Discounts, Pass Cash, and Activity Change Vouchers cannot be applied online at this time. These forms of payments can only be used in-person or by calling 844.GO2.BEAR. Credit card tokenization is the process of de-identifying sensitive cardholder data by converting it to a string of randomly generated numbers called a "token." Similar to encryption, tokenization obfuscates the original data to render it unreadable in the event of a data breach or other exposure. If you are having issues with your card, please call your bank directly.

Refund & Cancellation Policy
Guests may change or cancel lift ticket, lesson, rental, or activity reservations up to 3 full days prior to the scheduled date for a full refund. Changes or cancellations made within 3 days, up until the day prior to the scheduled date, will result in an Activity Change Voucher being issued for the full value of the activity cost (no fee). Same-day changes, cancellations, or failure to show up to your activity will result in a full forfeit of your payment. Once you make a purchase, if those funds are removed from Big Bear Mountain Resort's account and given back to you, your purchased tickets will become void and irredeemable for entry. Fraudulent attempts to force a bank or credit card chargeback by claiming you didn’t make the ticket purchase or can’t identify the purchase on your bank statement will result in being barred from attending future events hosted by Big Bear Mountain Resort.

Promotional sales or events including but not limited to Glow Golf and Above the Boom, do not qualify for refunds. All sales are final.
