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.
Permitted eBike Lifts & Trails Prohibited eBike Lifts & Trails Class 1 Pedal-Assist Chair 1 & 2
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.

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.

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.
