Pennsylvania’s Bear Creek Mountain Resort has added a new 2,200-foot long quad chairlift for 2008, rising 485 vertical feet and doubling the ski area’s uphill capacity. The $1.4 million chairlift concludes Bear Creek’s 5-year chairlift renewal plan, resulting in no lift on its property being over six years old.
Fourteen new automated ski guns have been added to Bear Creek’s snowmaking arsenal, increasing production by 30 percent. Bear Creek also relocated its family terrain park from the bottom of the Grizzly trail over to the Teddy Bear trail, increasing capacity and safety. The ski patrol facility has also been expanded.
