The Bear is Back


Bear Valley re-emerges with new ownership, new energy, and a new commitment… With the same amazing terrain and same dedicated crew. From facilities, lifts and operations, to grooming – on and off the hill – look for great things to come and tradition to live on with the awakening of THE BEAR!

…and he brought friends.

Bear Valley joins the Cali Pass. Bear’s skiers and riders now get unlimited access to Dodge Ridge, China Peak, and Mountain High with the Cali Pass.  Call 209.753.2301 ext 777 or email for more information on the Cali Pass.

Legendary local Tim Schimke, and Bear Valley’s General Manager says “Bear Valley is now a part of the California Mountain Resorts Company (CMRC), and, as General Manager, my enthusiasm is sky-high! I am excited to work with ski industry veterans, CEO Karl Kapuscinski, and CMRC President Tim Cohee. Under this new ownership, we are reinvigorating Bear Valley, where the spirit of California’s mountain lifestyle is personified with every run down our legendary trails. This is a turning point in Bear’s history where the founding fathers’ visions will be brought to reality with our mantra, #BearIsBack. I could not be more excited for what the future holds, and I hope to share the positive vibes and future plans with each and every one of you here at the resort this season. The Bear is back!”
