Bear Valley Ski Resort: What’s Going On?

|

Up and down the Highway 4 corridor in the central Sierra Nevada, people are wondering what’s going on at the Bear Valley Mountain Ski Resort?

After a brutal season last year, locals question whether or not the resort will open this season.

Slope Dope has received a number of e-mails from real estate and business folks in the area asking for some clarity.

But e-mails and phone messages to our normal contacts at the resort have gone unanswered.

Luckily for all us, the Calaveras Enterprise‘s James DeHaven has a good story on the subject. Read it HERE.

According to DeHaven’s well-researched piece, Colorado-based Dundee Resort Development operates Bear Valley and has until Oct. 15 to file a operation plan with the Stanislaus National Forest regarding the upcoming season.

In the meantime, locals are concerned about layoffs and a lack of communication from the resort.

We’d love to hear any feedback from the Highway 4 community on this subject. Drop us a comment below or send us an e-mail at slopedope@sfgate.com.

Bear Valley is a hidden gem in the Sierra that has been a family-friendly alternative to huge corporate resorts for decades. Whatever’s going on up there needs to be resolved.

Bear Valley needs to open.
