Full review

I've spent a bunch of days at Bear Valley with various free tickets and this and that. There really isn't anything it does really well or really bad. Its a cool little hill that is a ways from anywhere else. My wife took her first lesson there with Bea and she still raves about it and from what I have seen it would be a great place to learn. Some of the terrain is pretty good, but the runs are SO short. you're spending way more time on a lift then on a run, not even counting the wait in line. One great thing is Snowshoe Brew Co. down HWY 4. Love the beer there.
