Family Mountain Bike Rides at SkyPark at Santa’s Village

Mountain bikers Bill and Michelle Johnson shared some info for families interested in visiting.

“We wanted to make the perfect park for families to spend a day or two,” says Michelle Johnson, park Co-Owner, “Bill and I have biked these mountains since we were kids, and now we get to share it with the world.”


“We have a fully-alpine themed Santa’s Village as well as an epic mountain bike park with 7.5 miles of track,” says Bill, “And there’s something for every age and skill-level. We have a pump track for the little ones, entry and medium level trails, and even expert-level tracks that keep pro riders coming back.

The park is designed much like a ski resort, although we do not have a lift service. Everyone can ride together to the top, but a scaled network of trails for all levels can bring you down, back to the village, at a central location to regroup. We’re constantly improving and adjusting trails, with expansion continuing to change the experience every season.”


“We offer bike lessons for ages 3 and up, at a variety of skill levels,” says Michelle, “Our lessons are taught by certified instructors. We offer group and private lessons for everyone from beginners to regulars looking to improve their skills.”

“We offer lessons for all ages and skill levels as well as a full on-site bike shop,” says Michelle, “Our shop is filled with top-of-the-line mountain bikes, bike rentals, clothing, accessories, and everything a biker could want, whether you’re new or a regular.

Our expert staff will help you find the bike and gear to get the best experience on the mountain. We even have a rent-to-own program. When you purchase a bike from us you also get an annual pass for free.”


“Lake Arrowhead is a beautiful location in an alpine setting,” says Bill, “And Big Bear is about an hour’s drive down the road. The area gets a lot of seasonal skiers and nature-lovers. You can stay at our campground and RV park, or the Lake Arrowhead Lodge.

There are fun places to eat and get drinks (including several in the park). The area is a great place for a weekend getaway, and, weather permitting, our park is open year-round.”


“It used to be, when people came to the San Bernardino Mountains for sports, they were mostly just into skiing. But today, they’re also into mountain biking” says Bill, “We’re proud to be a part of that mindset shift.

These mountains need to be experienced and mountain biking is such a great way to do it year-round. It’s good for the local community as well, to have something year-round again.

Plus, we’ve brought the famous Santa’s Village theme park back to life for new generations, and that’s really special. I think the legacy this park leaves for future families is a very positive one, and Michelle and I are proud to be a part of it.”

SkyPark at Santa’s Village is an outdoor adventure park with year-round mountain biking, hiking, fly-fishing, archery, seasonal ice skating or roller skating, rock climbing, and more open-air activities in the Skyforest section of Lake Arrowhead, California.

The village is the core of SkyPark, which includes historic log cabin restaurants and shops, seasonal entertainment, and more.
