About

Welcome to the Bear Valley Ski Club!

Lake Louise, Canada 2012

Our ski club is based at Bear Valley Mountain Resort located in the scenic Central Sierra Mountains in California. The ski club was formed in 1966 by the developers of the Bear Valley/Mt. Reba Ski Area to host the US Winter National Ski Race in 1969. Since then, our Club has grown:

  • to foster the enjoyment of all winter activities including downhill skiing, cross-country skiing, snowboarding, and snowshoeing;
  • to develop skill skiing and boarding skills among men, women, and children;
  • and to promote good fellowship and sportsmanship.

Bear Valley Ski Club is for all types of skiers: new, expert, downhill, cross-country, boarders, snowshoe, or ski lodge participants. Bear Valley Ski Club is not just for all skiers – non-skiers can enjoy all the social activities as well. We encourage fellowship among members, and activities emphasize full family participation. With year round activities for members and their families, we are more than just a ski club!

Club activities and benefits during the year include:

  • General meetings (Potluck dinners)
  • Annual donation to a worthy cause
  • Bear Valley Mountain Resort direct-to-lift tickets at a reduced rate
  • Group rates for PHI and CALSTAR air ambulance programs
  • Dinner Dance in the winter
  • Annual Ski Trip
  • Family Fun Race Day at Bear Valley Mountain Resort
  • July 4th weekend picnic
  • Golf Tournament in the summer
  • Ski Sale in September
  • Season Kick-Off Potluck to welcome new members in the fall

In addition to the above annual events, Club members are encouraged to put together activities which can include kayaking, hiking, and wine tasting, just to name a few.  More info…
