What’s New for 2003: Bear Creek Ski Area
Author thumbnail By M. Scott Smith, DCSki Editor

Visitors to Pennsylvania’s Bear Creek Ski and Recreation Area this winter will find a brand new Dopplemeyer CTEC fixed-grip chairlift. The new lift replaces the old “B” double chair, increasing the uphill capacity from 845 people per hour to 1,700. The lift is 2,740 feet long and rises 460 vertical feet.

The lift will support an expanded teaching area for the Ski and Snowboard School, and should decrease lines significantly.

“Bear Creek has earned a reputation for maintaining short lift lines across the mountain, and this new quad lift will allow us to keep that commitment to our guests,” said Mark Schroetel, General Manager of Bear Creek.

A Kaser Carpet moving sidewalk has been added to a new teaching area at Bear Creek, as well as a third terrain park. Snowmaking capacity has been increased by 40 percent. Bear Creek has expanded its day care facilities, and added new ski and snowboard rental equipment.

Bear Creek is located in Macungie, Pennsylvania, an hour away from Philadelphia and Wilmington.
