Bear Valley, CA...9am opening today. We plan to operate Kuma and Cub at 9am. Staff will continue to work on polar as the morning progresses and we will do our best to get that open - but it will be delayed. This has been an unbelievable snowstorm and more terrain will be made available as soon as we can. Thank you for patience through this amazing snowfall. A special thank you to our crews around the mountain!! The task to dig out of snow is huge and we are grateful for their dedication and commitment to provide a safe and fun experience. Please Note that Koala had severe flooding and caused damage that crews will be working on, won't open tomorrow - will update as we know more.
Bear Valley Set To Reopen Tomorrow For Monster MLK Weekend
Posted by: thepinetree on 01/12/2017 09:18 AM
Bear Valley, CA...From Bear Valley Mountain..."Most of the current staff (some nearly 30 years) cannot recall experiencing anything close to this unprecedented weather event, beginning last Sunday with rain, that has now delivered over 60 inches of snow in the past few days, high winds, extremely dangerous avalanche conditions; and it continues to snow at this time. As a result we WILL NOT OPEN ON THURSDAY JANUARY 12, 2017. We do believe that by late Thursday we’ll be looking at partly cloudy skies, and snow removal and management efforts, prep on the mountain will produce a readiness to deliver a safe reopening of lifts and terrain this Friday.

Ebbetts Pass Closure Shifts On Markleeville Side Due To Mudslide
Posted by: thepinetree on 01/09/2017 02:05 PM
Calaveras/Alpine County: The closure for Westbound State Route 4/Ebbetts Pass has been shifted back to the SR-4/SR-89/Monitor Pass junction due to a mudslide. This is expected to be a long-term closure, due to the location of the slide, the weather and the difficulty in accessing the roadway where the slide took place.
