Snow Summit Resort

CANCELLED – We really tried to bring you a fat bike race. Unfortunately, El Nino didn’t cooperate. While there’s still plenty of snow on Snow Summit’s and Bear Mountain’s ski slopes, there just wasn’t enough on the trails we were going to use for our race.

NEW DATE! Because El Nino has been a little fickle this year we have decided to push the date of Fat Bike Big Bear back three weeks. We want to guarantee snow for our race, not mud. No snow, no race. The new date is March 12-13, 2016.


Southern California SUN and El Nino SNOW make Big Bear Lake the ideal location for the Big Bear Cycling/Open Air Big Bear Winter Festival and Fat Tire Big Bear event! Fat Bike Big Bear takes place during the Big Bear Winter Festival with Snowshoe Races in the Morning with Snow Shoe Big Bear and Fat Bike Big Bear in the afternoon. Races and Rides Start and Finish at the base of Snow Summit with the course on National Forest Trails.
