I was here as a guest in the summer month of August so I can not report on the outdoor winter activities. The lake was off limits and that was a huge disappointment. There are hiking trails and the grounds are meticulous. As for the suites outstanding. Beautifully decorated, large rooms with kitchen area, microwave and small refrig full size... More

Summer visit, as we were watching a mountain bike event at the resort. Great grounds, well maintained and the event went smoothly. We did eat at The Grille and enjoyed sitting outdoors. Anytime is the perfect time to visit, as there are a variety of activites going on. For example the Cheese & Garlic Festival is hosted by Bear Creek... More

Wonderful resort! Not only the skiing and snowboarding, but great place during the other seasons for various events such as their wine festival. Their spa is amazing and the grounds are also great for a hike.

I hit the slopes with some good friends and was NOT disappointed! The rental process was simple and quick, there weren't crazy lift lines, like at some of the other places in the area (ahem, Blue Mountain, Camelback). The staff was great and willing to help at all times. I enjoyed every second on the slopes! The terrain park was... More

This ski resort is conveniently located a short distance from the highway. Everyone in the dining area, stores, ticketing, transportation, and rentals was very friendly and patient! The lockers and changing areas were spacious and clean. I had taken the Discovery package for beginners. The lessons were set up well and included different stations to teach you the skills you...

Staff was friendly, lines at the lifts were not bad. Visited all the trails except the black diamonds, great shape snow, no ice! It was crowded on saturday afternoon (as expected), but started to clear out around dinner.

Went down to the Bear Creek Ski area this afternoon and was pleasantly surprised to find a decent ski area within an 1 hour drive from my home. I have three children under 12, so this type of ski area is great for little ones trying to learn their way on the slopes. I was expecting to find no more... More

Bear Creek is a nice Family Ski Mountain, A mountain where the whole family can learn to ski and then use their skills on the mountain. It is also a great warm up mountain. I (am almost 70) like to go there to warm up for the season. A group of expert skiers may want to go elsewhere, but for... More

While the atmosphere is nice, the experience that my fiancee and I had with the food and the service at "The Grille at Bear Creek", which is the sit-down, full-service bar & grille at Bear Creek Mountain, was poor. We waited far too long for both our appetizer and our main course. All we wanted was a warm dinner, and... More

I love having a respectable ski resort within a 40 minute drive from my house. Decent trails, fun terrain park, and the tubbing hill looks fun (never done it though). I got my wife a private lesson from April. She was great!! I highly recommend her for a beginners private lesson. Bear Creek is a great compromise for those of... More
