For those who would rather slide down the mountain on an inner tube, Bear Creek also has a snow tubing park, with 750-foot long runs and a 17% grade. Tubing tickets are sold separately from lift tickets.
Bear Creek has three separate terrain parks spread over 13 acres. Cascade Park is geared towards the beginner skier or snowboarders and includes small jumps and easy rails. Black Bear Park contains more advanced features, such as as 20- to 50-foot tabletops. Timberline Park is a boardercross course and includes features such as berms, rollers, and kickers. A 750-foot long halfpipe, a 46-foot S Rail, and a 24 by 24-foot Wall Ride are other features found in the parks.
4 or 8 hour lift tickets can be purchased at Bear Creek. The clock starts when you purchase your ticket.
Although Bear Creek primarily receives day visitors, there are many lodging and dining options available nearby. Several local hotels offer inexpensive “ski and stay” packages. The Inn at Bear Creek is a full service hotel located directly at the resort. The hotel offers discounted midweek packages including lodging and lift tickets. As with many mid-Atlantic resorts, you will find better prices and less crowds if you visit Bear Creek midweek.
Bear Creek was previously known as Doe Mountain but changed its name when it switched ownership in the late 90’s.
