Good place to ski.

We stayed the weekend and had a room in the hotel. The ease in renting our equipment and checking into the resort was extremely streamlined. They are very well run.

Bear Creek is a smaller mountain and does not have the best vertical, but it is a wonderful place for children and beginner skiers. The facilities are one of the best in the area.

With snowboarding rides as well as skiing and a tubing section as well. Throughout the year, they have events which are super fun - Harvest Wine Festival, Music Under the Stars,... More

Bear Creek Ski area exceeded my expectations. I live in philadelphia, less than an hr and a half from the ski area, which is why I choose to go to Bear Creek. I wanted a nice activity to do the day after Christmas. I like that this location is closer than the Poconos mountains and yet just as sufficient for... More
