Bear Valley Announces Plans for New High-Speed Six-Pack Chairlift

Bear Valley, CA...Skyline Bear Valley Resorts has entered into an agreement with Leitner-Poma to construct and install a new high-speed six-pack chairlift to be completed this year in time for the start of the 17/18 ski season in late November. The new lift will transport six passengers at a time from the mid-mountain ski lodge to the top of the mountain, at 8500’ elevation, nearly three times faster than the current lift. This exciting lift replacement project is pending process approval by the U.S.D.A. Forest Service (Stanislaus Forest), and will replace the Bear chairlift increasing guest uphill capacity of the mountain’s main artery.









Bear Valley’s new state of the art detachable chairlift provides an improved reduced speed “easy load and unload” experience at the bottom and top terminals, features comfort bars and foot rests and will carry guests to the mountain’s peak in just over three minutes. The lift will be supported by 11 towers with fifty eight carriers and service intermediate and advanced terrain, along with providing access to Bear West (aka Backside), the Village Side and all areas in the Upper and Lower Mountain bowls.

“This lift investment is a game changer for Bear Valley that will greatly enhance our guests’ experience during the winter operations, and with the new high speed lift being 100% downloadable it aligns well with our heightened focus on summer recreation and activities on the mountain,” said Andrea Young, general manager at Bear Valley. “This is a continuation of the many improvements that Skyline Investments is making at Bear Valley on the heels of two strong winters which will elevate the guest experience and further establish the area as a year-round Sierra family destination.”

This project will bring Skyline’s investment in Bear Valley to $6 million in improvements to Bear Valley in just two years including new ski and snowboard rental fleet, new snow cats for grooming, enhancements to the snowmaking system and equipment, IT and WIFI upgrades, new ski trails, remodeling of the ski guest areas, Creekside restaurant, BV Lodge lobby, lounge and guest rooms among other things.

    BV needs to develop more things for the non snow season activities. Iron Man was held there long ago. Why not again?

        Oh you poor crying Liberal you can always sit in your condo sucking your thumb, snorting cocaine and bathing in the sun wanking to the sounds of people cheering on real athletes.

        The fact has always been BV needs more off snow season sports and sport related events. They have concerts which is great but it is not enough to hardly keep operations going. Other resorts have off snow season activities so why not BV?

          Keep it up with all of the childishly petulant blathering about those oh so evil people who think differently than you do...

          One of these days, you're going to slip up and mouth off with some sh*t like this, in the presence of someone like me...

          and I will break your effing jaw and leave you sitting unconscious in a pool of your own urine...

          :)

          Til then, it's all Peace and love! ;)

Mixed emotions. Good for the area, bad for my skiing experience. High speed chairs are gaper magnets.
