Introduction to Snowbound Bear Valley Homes: The founders of our wee village envisioned a winter wonderland where visitors can park their car for the weekend and enjoy a winter experience sans driving. When there has been enough snowfall to close the subdivision roads, access to Bear Valley homes is by snowmobile, ski or snow boot. The roads in the village where the businesses (such as ours), and condos are located, are accessible by vehicle all year long.
Included with your reservation of a Bear Valley Home is over-the-snow transportation for your entire party (as well as your luggage, groceries and gear) to/from your rental home upon arrival and departure. You must prearrange both a “take-in” and “take-out” time that works with the schedule of our transportation team. Gratuity for your friendly driver is not included but much appreciated.
Getting around Bear Valley: Your Choice. You can ski from any home to the village where you can board the free ski area shuttle bus. Check with our office upon arrival for the shuttle bus schedule. You can also rent a snowmobile from one of two local outfitters. Many guests choose to walk to and from their rental homes to the village and find bringing plastic sleds to pull young children useful.
