About Bear Valley

Bear Valley sits in a stunning area of the Central Sierra Nevada Mountains undiscovered by the crowds. Our properties are the nearest accommodations to downhill skiing and snowboarding at Bear Valley Mountain Resort, cross-country skiing at Bear Valley Cross Country & Adventure Company, snowmobiling, sledding and amazing winter family fun!

With five mountain lakes and two mountain passes nearby, summer offers perfect temperatures and world-class recreation in the form of hiking, mountain biking, road biking, kayaking, stand-up paddleboarding, rock climbing and fishing, along with the annual Bear Valley Music Festival and myriad summer camps. With all of these reasons to be here, what are you still doing at home?
