The founders of our village envisioned a winter wonderland where visitors can park their car for the weekend and enjoy a winter experience on foot (or ski, or sled)! We can’t help but agree. There is something very special about being surrounded by a fresh blanket of snow.
Watch this for more information about how our over-snow transportation service works!
All winter, access to Bear Valley homes is by snowmobile, snow cat, cross country skis or walking. The roads in the village portion of Bear Valley, where the businesses (such as ours), and condos are located, are accessible by vehicle all year long, including the winter. If you would like to be able to drive to your winter vacation rental, booking a condo is the perfect choice for you. However, guests of all ages have come to experience (and love) the snowbound experience!
When you rent a home in Bear Valley through Bear Valley Vacation Rentals we transport your entire party, as well as your luggage, groceries and gear to your rental home upon arrival and departure. We work to set a “take-in time” that works with the schedule of our transportation team, setting an appointment for you be transported via snowmobiles outfitted with custom trailers designed to move both people and baggage.
Once at your rental home, you choose how you would like to get around. You can ski from any home to the free ski area shuttle bus in the village center. You can also rent a snowmobile from the local outfitters. Many guests choose to walk to and from their rental homes to the village. There are groomed and patrolled ski trails to the village center. Check with the friendly staff and ski patrol at Bear Valley Mountain to discuss the given conditions and ability level necessary to ski to the village.
