Over $2 million has been spent on improvements at Bear Creek Resort over the summer, as the Pennsylvania resort (located 60 minutes from Philadelphia) adds a new tubing park and new trails. (Bear Creek was formerly known as Doe Mountain.)
Snow tubing seems to be the theme of the 2002-2003 winter season for the Mid-Atlantic, and like many of its peers, Bear Creek is opening a new tubing park. The Park will offer nine 750-foot runs with a 17% grade.
For those who prefer to slide down the slopes in skis or a snowboard, Bear Creek has added two new trails, including Sasquatch, a black diamond run.
The resort’s terrain park and 570-foot long half pipe have been re-designed and enlarged, and hundreds of pairs of new skis and snowboards have been added to the rental shop.
$1.2 million worth of new snow guns have been added to Bear Creek’s snowmaking arsenal, and a newly enlarged pond and additional pumps should help the resort crank out artificial snow on 100% of terrain.
The lodge café has also seen some renovations of its own: a new menu will be offered, and diners will have the option of eating outside on the lodge deck, under brand new portable heaters.
