Join us in making history here in Big Bear with the Fox US Open of MTB making its west coast debut at our very own Snow Summit! Since 1974, with the primary focus as Motocross, Fox Head Inc. has been bringing fans thrilling and intense action. The company has been ever evolving over the years, and in 2003 they established the Fox US Open Downhill. Offering a challenging and competitive downhill mountain bike race.

All of Big Bear is buzzing with the excitement of hosting the first official west coast event. Racers are competing for over $50k in cash this weekend. Catch Pro/AM racers competing in different events such as Open Class Downhill Racing, Dual Slalom, NextGen Youth Downhill, Best Whip, and also this year catch the final stop for the EWS North American Enduro Series.

The event isn’t just for racers though, bring the whole family and experience the action first hand. Stop by the vendor booths in vendor village, grab some great food, and see live music performances. Maybe you’ll get to rub elbows with the best in the sport!

The event has free admission. Once inside, you’ll find merch for purchase and ticket purchase options for base area activities (climbing wall, zip line, tubing, euro bungee, etc.) and on-hill activities (bike park, scenic sky chair).
