Year-Round Excitement – Snow or Shine

BearValley plays host to schools, clubs, private groups and corporations from all over the state. BearValley’s group planners work with you to create a one day getaway or several days of fun for groups of all ages and abilities. Our planners will help with discounted pricing on recreational activities, lodging, meals and receptions, too.  Furthermore, we can help plan fun activities like races, scavenger hunts, environmental educational programs, team building activities, awards ceremonies and even weddings!

Mid-Week  Winter School Programs

Bear Valley offers a safe environment for students to come learn, explore and play in a winter wonderland. The Stanislaus National Forest offers a superb outdoor classroom to ensure your school can offer a comprehensive outing of education and fun for students of all ages.  Two comprehensive mid-week school programs are available for kids from 1st  to 12th grade.

  • SINGLE DAY – The mid-week educational single day program is a comprehensive snow sports program that includes a full day on the Mountain with teachers, classmates and chaperones. Each student will be enrolled in a 1.5 hour group lesson (mandatory) and will receive all-day ski or snowboard rentals and an all day lift ticket at a highly discounted rate.
  • MULTI-DAY – The mid-week educational multi-day program means the school rules the Mountain and the Village.  The same snow sports program offered to Single Day groups is available, as are various other Village activities. Contact our group planners to develop a comprehensive program with discounted lodging, meals and winter activities in the Village and on the Mountain.
