Bear Creek Mountain Club is a true treat for winter sports lovers who love to ski, but hate long lines and massive crowds. This ski area functions like a country club. The resort only lets in a limited amount of members each year to make sure that all guests have plenty of space to enjoy the facilities.
The club has 15 trails and two lifts. Members can also participate in snowmobiling. Access to the snowmobile area may depend on weather conditions.
Non-club members can access Break Creek Mountain on a limited basis, but reservations are always required. Members can also sign in friends and family as guests.
The ski slopes are open from Thursday through Sunday and may be open on other weekdays during the holiday season. Anyone interested in becoming a club member needs to contact a resort representative to discuss pricing and packages.
Bear Creek Mountain Club has no rental shop. Since most of the skiers are members who ski frequently and have their own equipment. If a guest is visiting a member, they can rent skis at one of Vermont’s many independent ski shops before arriving at Bear Creek.
Bear Creek offers private lessons and small group lessons for both adults and children. Guests of members can also participate in ski lessons. Bear Creek prides itself on tending to members personally and there are normally only one or two students per instructor. Young children can participate in lessons that include sledding and games.
There are no races currently advertised for Bear Creek Mountain. Individuals looking to learn more about future racing plans should contact the help desk at the resort.
Only 450 people or less can be on the mountain per day. When there is extra space available, the public can use the lifts. There are public lift tickets available at both junior and adult prices. Non-members need to contact the resort for availability before heading out to the slopes. Members receive reduced lift ticket prices which can be purchased in full or half day increments. Guests of members can also receive a discount, but the member must place the reservation for the guest or the guest may be subject to the public pricing.
There are houses and condos slope side that can be rented nightly or for an entire week. Bear Creek has its own real estate and property management group that can assist members in securing a reservation at one of these properties. Guests who wish to stay offsite have their choice of many local area inns, including the popular Hawk Resort. This resort has its own spa making it a great place to relax after a long day on the slopes.
