Bear Bear has pretty much only man-made snow so skiing isn't great but for a really fun family day of sledding Snow Valley is definitely the best of the sledding places. The 2 runs are long with plastic sleds included in the entry price. You can either hike up the hill or ride a chair lift to the top of... More

This review is solely dedicated to their so called Leaning Center and not the entire resort. First, The ski: If your children are advance skier, do not send them to this Learning Center. Neither half day nor the full day package would improve their skill. Second, The Snowboard: Some of the coaches are good but some are super lazy. So... More

$35 on a "holiday" (Monday between Christmas and New Years). Sled runs are packed, although the ski lifts have very short lines. 1/2 hour to 45 minute waiting time between runs. Unacceptable for $35. At 1pm they were still selling sledding tickets to people, despite the long lines. All they care about is money. Go down the road and ride... More

Spent 3 days in the Lake Arrowhead are recently. My granddaughter and friend wanted to go sledding. It had just snowed the previous night, so we drove from Lake Arrowhead to a sledding and tubing area just west of the Snow Valley ski runs. Price is $12 for 2 hours and they provide the tubes. No one really checks on... More

Drove up at round 10AM. There was a fresh coat of snow. The air smelled declicious, like pine trees. There was awsome slopes for play. It started snowing at round 1PM. We decided to drive down. Be careful with weather conditions when visiting. If snow storm is too big, you will not be allowed to come down and you wil... More

I work on a television show that recently filmed at the ski resort. The crew had a fantastic time working at the property. I must say that the entire staff that worked with our film crew was fantastic and went the extra mile to make our location work go as smooth as possible. The entire staff was outgoing, friendly, and... More

We had decided to take our daughter, son-in-law and 7 year old grandson for a short skiing holiday over President's Day weekend, staying at Lake Arrowhead and skiing at Snow Valley. With the worst snow record for years, we did not expect much, but were pleasantly surprised by the efforts made to provide a few runs with man made snow.... More
