We've been coming to Bear Creek for several years; however, this year, they ran out of tickets for the last four elementary age children..............why couldn't they bend the rules to include 4 kids in our group of 29 people??????

I really enjoyed the women's first timers clinic with Mary and Cathy. This is a great beginners mountain and when I bring my husband back we can see what the blue diamonds are like :)

There's an outdoor heated pool and hot tub... as well as an indoor...... More

This is one of the smaller ski resorts in Eastern PA but is a great place for the beginner or novice skier. It is not very far from points in Montgomery county or from Philadelphia. If you want a larger mountain then your are in for a much longer drive. My kids are all beginners so Bear Creek was perfect... More

Bear Creek is a beautiful, newer ski facility that could be so much better than it is if it was run like skiing mattered. While it has a neat hotel, bar, and looks great the place is regularly overrun by crowds on the weekend and the runs are poorly groomed. If it was organized better and run with a little... More

Loved EVERYTHING about the place. They made it look easy to be almost perfect! I was a guest for a wedding and spent the night. Everything from food to customer service was exceptional.

Our day trip was mid-week which was the ideal time to go. Only 1/3 of the main parking lot had cars = super short lift line waits. We too were astonished by how fantastic the lodge is: carpeted, with beautiful rustic wood, soaring ceilings and a great selection of really good food. There was a separate room for folks who...
