Bear Valley - Snow quality is fantastic. Huge base and enough snow fall to pack it up. Unreal season so far. Lower bowls have been opened up several days this season. First time I've seen them open in 6 years.  - © iPhone

Bear Valley - Great skiing yesterday, Fri, Feb 12th. No lines, killer conditions, blue sky.  Machine groomed. Most lifts were operational and it looks like they were working on a few more to get ready for the weekend. Best skiing we've had in awhile (season pass holders) - © Scelillo

Bear Valley - Considering the warm sunshine and lack of snow, you could ski down the whole front side of the mountain from Kuma chair (albeit 1 run). Pretty Amazing. Porridge bowl was also open, top half. Both bunny slopes were open. Great for beginners. Lots of snow coming for a last ride - © Jordon's iPhone

Snowmaking is great. Mountain has lots of cover on the front side. They have been working really hard on grooming.

groomed runs are great, non groomed are very icy. better coverage then most resorts in N. CA that I've been to. They are making snow but coverage can get thin in some spots especially later in the day.

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.

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