Snow Valley Mountain Resort Offers Plenty of Black and Blue Runs

Snow Valley Mountain Resort keeps alive the ancient Scandinavian activity of Skiing. Experience Alpine life the way it should be by making your way up to a 7,841 foot peak and pushing yourself off Nord Valley run. Plenty of Black diamond and blue diamond runs even for seasoned people. At such heights it seems like you can see the whole earth. Even as late in the winter as March most of their lifts are open for use and people are attending in droves to make sure they get a few moments of skiing before surfing season begins.

Running the Slopes at Bear Mountain Ski Resort

Bear Mount Ski Resort located in the rustic village of Big Bear Lake in  California has four mount peaks ranging from 8,000 to 8,500 feet above sea level. Bear Mountain is partnered with Snow Summit just a few steps down the road. One offers a trendy scene and the other night skiing. Together they provide 438 developed acres, 26 lifts and more than 55 runs. Most, 70% of the runs, are intermediate to advanced so you will have a good time if you obtained previous skill. There are enough beginner runs and classes for those who are just starting. In my case, I grew up skiing so after a few hours on the intermediate runs I started to take more of the advanced ones. I avoided the half pike and all the obstacles. All I need is a broken leg! The lodge at the base of the run provides plenty of food and ski services. You can purchase equipment, fix equipment, rent equipment, eat and drink till your hearts content. Their Beach Bar on the sun deck is very popular and draws a crowd of people.
