Great learning area, some interesting little blacks
Bear creek is a fun little mountain. They have some smile inducing little steeps - toss yourself over the edge of Sasquatch or scoot down narrow Extreme. If you like mellow, long groomers you can do Broadway or Timberline.
If you are just learning they have the magic carpet area which seem nearly perfect for that first time getting up on skis. The lift for the learning area gives access to an easy green. By the end of the day see if you can manage Broadway.
The grooming and snowmaking seem to be top notch. The lodge is pleasant and food is reasonable for a ski area. Any worker I had any contact with was pleasant and I chatted with people on lifts who either know the place well and love it or had just discovered and, like me, were pleasantly surprised.
It isn't the most challenging or largest mountain in the area but you can have a good time running all over it.
