General Conditions: Last Updated Thursday, 1/29/15 at 7:30am
This Monday through Friday, trails are open from 9am to 3pm; the Tubing area is open from 9am to 3pm; the Meadow Cafe is open Monday, Tuesday & Friday from 11:30am. to 2:30pm.
We have 21 trails open for xc skiing and snowshoeing, including 6 snowshoe-only trails.
We are grooming 14 kilometers of meadow trails daily and ski conditions are pretty darn good for the first half of the day when the temps are cooler. These are spring conditions, so snow conditions do change throughout the afternoon. Given the circumstances, we continue to have quite possibly the best XC ski conditions in the Sierra.
Our retail store is filled with winter clothing, accessories and ski gear. Come up and do some shopping in Bear Valley!
