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!

Arguably the best conditions so far this year with the sub par snow they have received from mother nature. It snowed off and on yesterday but the crowds were not to bad. I didn't see any knee deep powder. all the ungroomed snow (powder) I saw had a thick layer of ice top of it that made it almost un-skiable. groomed runs were great.

Yeah.... It was awesome.... I got first tracks.  Powder city until 11.   Then it got a little crowded and tracked out.  No big deal, I still killed it on the tree runs.  Yeah

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

More slushy than you would expect. But still fun, good for beginners.

Yesterday was beautiful at China Peak. Expect classic spring skiing. Super icy in the morning before thawing out and getting fun. They have a fair amount of runs open. Enough for a day of fun skiing. It's all on the groomers though. Good day trip

Lots of new snow and the runs are great. The terrain park is great this year with lots to offer. Most runs are covered in packed powder and with colder temps, snow should get better. Expecting to open new terrain by next weekend. China peak is excellent right now. Worth the trip.

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 Sunday, no lines. 4 or 5 lifts open with about a half dozen runs. had a good time but coverage very thin with a few sharp rocks here and there. conditions varied a lot depending on run.

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 .
