Description

Although Bear Valley is considered a mid-size ski resort, it ranks as the 8th largest ski area in California. The diverse terrain offers skiing excitement for all abilities. With 67 trails serviced by 11 lifts that accommodate 12,000 skiers per hour, you'll spend more time skiing and less time waiting in line.

Bear Valley Ski Area provides a scenic view of the Sierra. Views from the resort drop 3,800 feet into the deep, granite cut of the Mokelumne River. Snowmaking the natural way dumps an average of 450 inches of snow annually. But just in case, state of the art snowmaking equipment blankets 35 percent of the terrain with high-quality snow throughout the season.

The Grizzly Bowl, one of Bear Valley's biggest attractions, boasts more than 1,000 feet of vertical with an array of steep chutes and wide open bowls. The "Grizz" is one of the most challenging descents in all of California.

The ski area is conveniently located on scenic Highway 4, just two hours east of Stockton, 2.5 hours from Sacramento and 3.5 hours from most Bay Area locations.
