At Bear Creek, we offer extended day and evening lift tickets for youth and adult. We also offer discounted pricing for select guests in our community. We also offer a variety of season passes for all ages. Click below to view our pricing.
Boots: You will receive your boots first. The rental technician will use your street shoe size to assure that you get the proper fit. Your boots should feel quite snug around your foot, but not too tight. Once your boots are buckled or closed, you should be able to wiggle your toes, but your heel should not move excessively when you pull up. If your boots feel too loose or too tight, please let the technician know to receive a different size.
Skis: Bindings mounted on top of your skis hold your boots to the skis. Your bindings will be adjusted according to your weight, height, age, and ability level. You will also be issued ski poles. You should select poles that put your elbow at about a 90 degree angle with the pole planted in the snow.
To step into your skis, place the ledge on the front of your boot under the front part of the binding or “toe piece,” then line up your heel with the back of the binding, or “heel cup,” and press down with the heel of the boot. To remove your skis, simply press down on the lever located at the back of your bindings with your ski pole tip and lift up on the heel of your boot.
Snowboards: Our technicians will choose the right snowboard for you based on your weight, height, and ability level. They will also use this information to set the position of your bindings, which hold your boots onto your snowboard. Bear Creek uses only strap-in bindings, which contain two straps and a high backplate to secure your feet to the snowboard. These bindings offer good control and comfort.
Whether on the slopes or in the parks, we want everyone to have a safe and enjoyable snow sports experience. Please respect all of our guests and team members, and help us to maintain a friendly, courteous, and relaxing atmosphere.
