It is funny to see all the cars drive past Snow Valley for another 45 minutes to descend down into big bear valley, pay 3 times the price, park so far away you have to take a tram, and deal with crowds. The terrain is comparable to other resorts and on powder days they get more snow. I can't imagine what a pain it must be to take a family elsewhere, not to mention the added expense. There is just no reason to go elsewhere, unless you buy into the hype from the mega-conglomerate deep pocket marketing of the other resorts. I think a lot of people think that what they can see from the highway or parking lot is all there is to the resort. When you take the lift up you quickly realize there is a lot more than you thought.
