Snow Summit Downhill Fest 2010 #1

We headed on up to Big Bear’s Snow Summit ski resort to do some chair lift-assist riding this weekend. In all we had about a dozen riders join us. Some people did three runs, others five, and I did four. My routes included the Fall Line, the 2N10 > Meadows > Towne Trail, the 2N10 > Pine Knot and the 2N10 > Fern Trail.

Check out a panorama shot I took along the 2N10 between Snow Summit and the Pine Knot trail (aka Grand View Loop).

Of course, no trip to Big Bear would be complete without a stop in town for some grub and margaritas at the Jacalito Grill. There are a few reasons we love this place:

  • It’s on the route back to Snow Summit.
  • 18 oz. Cadillac margaritas are only $8.50.
  • You can park your bikes right outside of where you’re eating.
  • Oh, and the food is pretty good too.

After the ride, we had a BBQ and spent the night at one of our 3F member’s cabin which was conveniently just a mile and a half away from Snow Summit. By the way, if you ever want to stay in Big Bear near Snow Summit, the cabin rents out for $250/weekend in the summer. It has 2 bedrooms and 5 beds including 2 that can sleep 2. So if a couple guys brought their girlfriends there could be as many as 7 people sleeping comfortably. This deal is only good for 3F members. Contact me for info at
