We are going to Bear Valley for several years. It is always pleasant. This last weekend was no different. Snow was great, slopes were groomed. In spite of the fact that there were many people, the site was very comfortable. Lines were not long at all; The parking shuttle was very effective; The cafeteria staff was effective and lines for food were not too long; Staff everywhere was very helpful and hospitable. Out 5 yr. old took his first lessons in ski, 2 lessones each day for two days, and he enjoyed them very much. All in all, a wonderful experience.
