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.

Resort is great for its size, no complaints for service, attitude, etc. Rating is for the snow. Icy day, don't dare to go off of what was previously groomed cause you will be in rough stuff. The melt the past 2 days has exposed the stones and lots of grass especially off of lift 8. The resort hadn't been able to groom the night before so they gave us a discount voucher. we are from the Midwest so we probably won't be able to use it but it was a nice touch.

Great opening weekend! only runs that are groomed are academy and a Tollhouse. .. or whatever the one with the mini park is called. few boxes set up... a tiny single jump... nothing to big yet. crazy lines Saturday, but that's acceptable considering its opening day. Sunday was much much better, no lift lines and bluebird sky. snow was a little icy, but it softened up around 1 and was perfect.

Went on Thursday. no crowds, fresh powder & groomed runs. A few hazards here & there. Overall great but could use a few more inches of snow.

went Friday. had fun & super nice employees. cover still ok but getting thin.  better have good fresh wax as it's slushy and very sticky in this warm weather. it wasn't crowded at all and a some people left early because of the conditions.

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.
