I noticed this on the Big Bear site:

http://www.bigbearmountainresorts.com/biking.php

Snow Summit will no longer transport downhill specific mountain bikes on the Sky Chair during the summer months for either recreational or competitive purposes. The resort will continue to haul conventional (cross-country) mountain bikes for general public on the Sky Chair, with access to off-site Forest Service trails and roads. The resort has taken this action because of the liability exposure and forest damage from downhill bikes. Furthermore, there will be no more biking of any kind on the ski runs.

Any one of the following four factors will disqualify a bike from being transported on the chair:

1. Bikes must be less than 35 pounds.
2. Designated tire size must be less than 2.5.
3. Front shock must have less than 6 inches of travel.
4. Bikes must have three chain rings unless they are single speed.
Lifts are few and far between as it is. Thoughts?

I guess you don't know about the racing accident and subsequent lawsuit then.

This really is old news.. like years old.
Nope. So I guess this won't be an ongoing trend then.

Whoa awesome! Picked up the Stump foresome last winter. Forgot how awesome that movie was. "We don't call it poaching up in Alaska, we just call it skiing":p
