Bear Valley Future Plans Take Center Stage...Bear Valley Mountain Resort Expanding to Almost 1,800 acres~Video of Presentation Enclosed~By John Hamilton

Bear Valley, CA....BVMR and the Stanislaus National Forest held a scoping meeting this last weekend to unveil and get feedback on their plans for improvements to the resort. For those who have been following this process this is the USFS accepted plan that follows on the heels of the draft plans made public in April of this year. They will be accepting comments on these plans until Sept 19, 2008. The specifics are almost identical to the April plans. The high points: A new High Speed Quad Village Lift, A new 10,000 square foot lodge at Bear Top, Another High Speed Quad to replace Super Cup, Ski-able Acreage to increase from 1,150 to 1,750 with the addition of the new " East Bowl" to be served by the Village Lift....

Draft Map of Expansion Plans and Bear Valley CEO Martin Wegenstein addressing the group in the Bear Valley Lodge

There will be numerous and subtle changes made to trail and run shapes and slopes to make the entire resort more ski-able, reduce bottlenecks and make Bear Valley Mountain Resort easier for novices and intermediate skiers to enjoy the slopes while adding over 150 acres of great advanced terrain and additional tree skiing with the new East Bowl. Baring any delays during the approval process construction is expected to commence the Summer of 2010.

The Mountain and Lift portion of Bear Valley's expansion plans comes under the auspices of the USFS. While the New Bear Valley Village Development falls under the jurisdiction of Alpine County. This will be covered in the Village EIR to be released soon. The held a meeting yesterday on the traffic portion of this plan that pertains to Calaveras County and what traffic impacts are Calaveras County specific.

We will bring you updates on both processes as they move forward.
