A Little Bit About Snowmaking

Written by

You might be wondering how we actually make snow. While searching the Internet to find a great way to explain how snowmaking works, I came across two great informational videos.

These videos were produced by onthesnow.com, their meteorologist, Joel Gratz, explains the science behind snowmaking, why skiers and snowboarders should care and why resorts across North America need man made snow to keep the lifts running.

In the first, Making Snow On The Mountain, you will learn about what a snow gun does, how it works and what our snowmaking team has to do to make great snow. In the second, The Business Of Snowmaking, you will learn about the logistics, economics and elements required to make snow.

I encourage you to take a few minutes to learn about the snowmaking process and why it is so important to Bear Creek.

Thanksgiving Fun!

Written by

Gobble, Gobble and Happy Thanksgiving!  November is a time for homecoming and historically Thanksgiving is one of the most travel heavy times of the year.  According to various websites 56% of modern day Thanksgiving Pilgrims will travel at least 100 miles by car, with the average distance of 214 miles, but Orbitz, the travel website, has air travel at its peak in July. So armed with this information, the moral of this story is that all travel can be a hassle no matter what day you travel, it just depends on who you ask!

I am blessed with the fact that all my family now lives nearby and my even more special family of friends are right in my neighborhood.  The Wednesday before Thanksgiving is a huge night for us to get together and enjoy some quiet time before the hectic holidays hit.  This year we will be at Bear Creek together for the Pub Crawl.  What a great way to host a party…let Bear Creek do all the work! 

We will begin the night in the Trails End Café where Victoria and Ben are the Mixologists for the night.  Bar None Entertainment will be spinning tunes and handing out prizes for trivia.  Then we will crawl on down to The Turkey Bar that will be set up in the rock garden with patio heaters and fire pits to keep us toasty and warm.  But it is the cool games that I am most looking forward to at The Turkey Bar.  There will be four of them all based on Minute to Win It games but with a Thanksgiving twist. 

When it is time to move on to the third bar we will be heading into The Grille for a drink special and to listen to Jake Kaligis and The New Constitution play.  By crawling through the resort and visiting all three bars, I can then be entered to win an off peak season pass OR an overnight stay in The Hotel at Bear Creek.  What an awesome prize!!! 

So on Monday of Thanksgiving week I can say that I am so looking forward to this Wednesday night and spending a fun night at Bear Creek with all my friends.  Hope to see you at the Turkey Bar.

For The Love of Fall

Written by

I LOVE the fall, it happens to be my second favorite season. (Behind winter, of course.) One of the best parts of the fall is my drive to and from the resort each day. The combination of the crisp air and the gorgeous foliage surrounding the resort is astounding. Aside from the nature aspect of fall, my second favorite thing about this season is the anticipation and excitement it brings about the coming winter months.  This is the time where I get to start talking about winter to the community and to our guests. We also start to see our seasonal team members returning, people who I might not have seen for several months. It’s almost like a fun family reunion! 

You might be wondering what’s new at the resort this season. Well.. you’ve got questions, and I’ve got answers. We are opening a new coffee, breakfast, snack shop that will be called Bear Bites! Bear Bites will be open from 7am to 9pm daily and is located adjacent to the Mountain Eatery. Stop in for a latte, coffee, breakfast burrito or dessert waffle!

On the mountain, we continue to upgrade our snowmaking system. We installed 33 new automated snowguns. Automated guns allow more precise snowmaking and create a better product. These particular guns are designed to work better in marginal weather conditions. With the addition of these automated guns, this puts our automatic gun count at about 75%.

On another note, don’t forget that early bird season pass rates expire on October 31, that’s just 13 days! These are the best pass prices of the year, make sure you don’t miss out.

Fall Has Arrived

Written by

It’s been quite some time since our last post, things have gotten pretty hectic in our office. Since we’ve last chatted, we hosted a great Spanish Wine & Tapas dinner and an awesomely successful Oktoberfest.

In an effort to create more event awareness, we did somethings a little different with our social media for this event. Instead of just promoting the event prior to the actual festival, we did live postings throughout the event using the tag #BCOKTOBERFEST. In order to let our guests know what we were doing, we asked them to join the conversation on facebook, twitter, pinterest and instagram. You might be asking how we our guests knew that we wanted them to post to these outlets. If you are, below is a photo of flyers that we made and distributed throughout the event.

I'm not sure how many people actually used the QR codes but I did notice increased traffic to our pages in both likes, posts and photos throughout the day. I am deeming this effort a success, it allowed me to tell the story of the event through photos and posts, and I had a great time too. So, if your planning to attend this weekend's Fall Festival or the Harvest Wine Festival on October 21, keep an eye out for more social flyers and the other eye on our social pages. If you're luck you might even find me wandering around the event posting, tweeting, pinning or taking photos! PS- If you plan to attend Fall Festival, post on our pages using #BCFALLFEST

Before I go, here are a few things you should know:
 

See you soon!
