    I sure hope they open up soon... the wait is killing me! Last year I went there to ride for the first time and they closed the lifts for bikes the following week. From what I saw it doesn't look like they enforce the "No DH bike" rule. There were more than a few guys with full blown DH rigs there that weekend.

    Aslong as you have $ they will let you ride, DH rig or not. IMO

    Anyone wanna tag with or invite a fellow DHer? Message me and let's plan it out!

    They do look and even weighed mine at 45lbs. They grumbled a little saying it was heavy for them to lift but other than that, they were pretty cool.

    This was the last month of the season last fall. They weighed it both times I went. Second time was to see if I shaved 2lbs or not but it was the same lifty. I do have a full DH bike and so does my 10 year old son so maybe that helps not to look like we are going to thrash the place.

    I was hoping the lifts would be opening for mountain bikes sometime this month. Have any of you guys tried camping up in big bear?

    Well, there hasn't been any mention of when they'll open up the lifts to take bikes yet. I'd assume they'd close the resort down for a bit, to do whatever maintenance that needs to be done then open it up for summer season shortly thereafter.

    Either way, it's probably not too far off.

    The Forestry Service is negotiating contracts with perspective management companies to run the 2 campgrounds, Pineknot and Serrano. Pineknot is next to Summit and Serrano is on the North Shore. Recreation.gov states 5/31 for opening which sucks. They normally open the middle of this month.

    We all must be itching to ride... 1500 views already?! I hope the Forestry Service doesnt DELAY the normal opening when I was hoping the light season would lead to an early opening.

    ^^^^^^^What?? No way. I was up there on Tuesday. There is absolutely no snow off the trails, and it was slushy (to the point where you had to walk across some of the flat areas because it was too slow), and there were multiple bare spots on the trails.

    Don't worry group, after today's storm, I doubt they get any snow, the runs will be open soon to biking.

    There are rumors floating around that Summit is going to open to bikes with an all new mountainbike park, don't know if its going to happen this year or not. Rumor has it that a serious effort will be made to make it a world class bike park.
    All I ask of anyone reading this post, that when youre riding up here, especially on the Snow Summit side, ride responsibly, so the share holders and risk management could finally give the go ahead on this plan/ rumor.

    That would be sooooo incredibly awesome! Do they have new ownership? Last I asked the lift folk why they haven't followed mammoths example, they said that the owners were deathly afraid of another lawsuit...
