We arrived on March 18 and there was only 2 lifts open and one trail. All the staff was super friendly and very helpful. Conditions were not good (65F temps) but it ended up... read more

Bwatufull view and cabins. Wondering family vacation with kosher food and lots of entertainment. Can wait to go there for snow season.

This place is fun for a few hours but don't pay the full price, use any discount you can. They do have security scanning the parking lot quite often. It's an ok place.

Conditions were not good (65F temps) but it ended up being a great experience for our young son who was skiing for the first time. We were the only family at the resort so our son... More

They are very strict and actually discourage people from having fun by always telling people how to act over their silly PA system. I suppose it is okay for small children and such but I would just never go back

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
