Great family resort. Snow making extends the season. The lodge and bar have a great, warm friendly atmosphere.

Dinner in the fall gives you great colorful views, and the restaurant adds to the experience with fine selections.

It's nice to have a place so close to home. The rates are steep for what you get and I don't recommend going on the weekend if you want to get any runs in. Try to purchase tickets at your township or bikeline before going and MAKE SURE the date of the ticket you purchase is the same date that... More

Great for beginners and more experienced skiers/boarders. Convenient location and friendly, helpful staff. The group lessons were just enough for my son and his friends to feel comfortable on the beginner slopes.

The resort is beautiful. The rooms are clean and comfy. Expensive, and I wish breakfast was included (there is food available, but no included breakfast or room service). The pool area is clean and cared for.

Fine dining at The Grille; lighter fare at Trail's End and the Mtn. Eatery. The... More

I live about 2 hours south east of Bear Creek but my husband and I take trips up every few months to stay at the hotel, enjoy the spa and just get away. It's one of our favorite spots. The spa, in particular, is amazing...Great masseuses, steam room, tranquil setting and tons of great services. Overall, Bear Creek is immaculate,... More

Grew up skiing / snowboarding here. Good for day and night skiing. Base area provides plenty of amenities. They need to install a high speed quad, you spend more time on lift than on the slopes.

I took my children ages 7- 17 here to go snowtubing. They have about 8 - 10 lanes of tubing so there was very little wait time. I was most impressed by the friendliness of all staff from the parking attendants to the people at the slopes. Even though it was very crowded every thing moved smoothly. I would definitely... More
