Bear Valley - Considering the warm sunshine and lack of snow, you could ski down the whole front side of the mountain from Kuma chair (albeit 1 run). Pretty Amazing. Porridge bowl was also open, top half. Both bunny slopes were open. Great for beginners. Lots of snow coming for a last ride - ©Jordon's iPhone

Bear Valley - Looking pretty Bear out here (see what I did there?) but what's open is skiing pretty damn well considering. Everything off koala is real nice. Porridge bowl is nice soft corn. Backside is done for the season. - ©Steve Williams’s iPhone

Perfect day yesterday. Tons of soft powder and hardly any one around. Got a little icy on the front side in the afternoon but the backside was beautiful all day.

Snowmaking is great. Mountain has lots of cover on the front side. They have been working really hard on grooming.

groomed runs are great, non groomed are very icy. better coverage then most resorts in N. CA that I've been to. They are making snow but coverage can get thin in some spots especially later in the day.

Powder (mostly packed) & groomed runs. most lifts & at least half the runs open. good coverage with the occasional hazards mostly clearly marked or patched up quickly.

Tuesday was one of the best days I've ever had!! This pic was taken at 12:45 Tuesday, to give you an idea of what freshies can be found mid-day in the pow-lover's dream that is Bear Valley (especially mid-week)! Flurries all day today. Old pow is getting a crust, but with weather getting warmer, the sweet spot of the day will be around 11am if the sun is out. Still plenty of fresh lines to be had, but it will be heavy. The groomers are fantastic!!! Come enjoy the Pure Mountain Fun! PMF all day!!! This weekend should be great!!!

Went up Friday 3/28.16" of new snow in the last 48 hours. Most of the mountain is open with much but not all of it groomed. More snow due daily through at least Tuesday. Conditions are good & I had a good time.

all in all, pretty fun day! icy on the backside in the morning, so we rode the mashed potatoes in front. backside softened up around 2, rode until my quads were screaming! no crowds, polite clientele, skiers and snowboarders coexisting! Enjoy while you can!

A little hard in the morning, lines are quick and not a lot of people.  Snow amount is perfect for spring skiing.

In the past week, Bear had delicious fresh snow, great groomers for beginners. Off-piste is thin, but frontside trails are open to cautious skiers/riders (and well worth the traverse!)

Not too crowded, there was a thin layer of powder over ice and ground but not too many rocks and other things exposed.

Went up today. Only had three lifts open. At the beginning of the day the ground had a good amount of snow on it. By the end of the day from only having 5 runs open dirt and rocks started to appear. It got icy on a lot of the runs too. However they did have a couple terrain parks open with some boxes and rails.. Lets just say bear is hurting for snow right now .
