Planning Your Winter Vacation to Bear Creek

Winter is fast approaching, so if you get stuck in the seasonal depression trap, we got just the cure.
Finding outdoor activities in the winter is a great way to fight seasonal depression. To help fight the winter blues, why not book a getaway? If you’re itching for a way out of the dark and cold, Bear Creek should be your winter vacation destination.
With plenty of natural and man-made snow, the slopes at Bear Creek are groomed and ready for shredding all day long. Whether you want to ski, ride, or snow tube, hotel guests can take advantage of all the resort offerings.
There is still time for a winter getaway and the popular Midweek Ski & Stay hotel package is still available. It’s the resort’s best-selling package because it helps you get the most out of your winter experience.

It’s All Inclusive

The Midweek Ski & Stay package is a bundled deal. The package includes an overnight stay, 2 extended day lift tickets for day of arrival, and 2 extended day lift tickets for following day.
Hotel guests who have booked this package don’t have to worry about pre-purchasing tickets online before they sell out. Your tickets are set aside and ready for pick up upon your arrival. 
*Cost based upon room type.

Everything you need. Nothing you don’t.

As part of the package, hotel guests also receive 40% off rental equipment if needed. This includes skis, poles, snowboards, boots and helmets. Any winter sports items that you need can be purchased upon arrival at the hotel front desk; no online pre-purchase necessary.
If you prefer to take a lesson before hitting the slopes, our hotel will directly contact the Snowsports School to help get you set up. The snowsports school offers discounted lessons for hotel guests and are available for ages 8 and up.
Although the package is based upon double occupancy, Bear Creek can make adjustments to the amount of guests arriving. It’s only $69 to add an extra guest onto the package, and children 5 and under are FREE!
If your legs need a rest day, hotel guests have access to snow tubing for an additional cost. Tickets for snow tubing are also available at the hotel front desk; no online pre-purchase necessary.

Beat the “Crowds”

Although Bear Creek has limited capacity this year, the weekdays still tend to be quieter than the weekends.
The Midweek Ski & Stay package is valid Sunday-Thursday, non-holiday; automatically giving you less wait time and more slope time.
Package is not valid in December, MLK, or President’s week.

Additional Amenities

The hotel has an Equipment Check room exclusively for the convenience and use by hotel guests, so you don’t have to lug your equipment in and out of your vehicle or hotel room.
As always, hotel guests can enjoy the year-round amenities* including the spa, indoor dining, pools and hot tubs, as well at the fitness center.
If you wish to utilize The Spa or dine at The Grille, please call or go online to make your reservation.

Rest Day Recuperation

After a day of shredding the slopes, you can spend some downtime at The Spa. The Spa is operating by appointment only, so make sure to book online today!
With extra cleaning directives in place at the hotel and spa, you can feel comfortable knowing Bear Creek is taking all necessary safety precautions to keep guests safe.

Delicious Dining

The Grille at Bear Creek is a local favorite and just a few steps off the slopes. View the menu to see all the delicious options.
The Grille also provides hotel room delivery. Call ahead and never have to leave your room! Delivery ends half hour prior to closing time.
The restaurant capacity is limited, so call 610-641-7149 to make your reservation.

Close to Home

Perhaps the best part about this winter getaway during a time of uncertainty is being close to home.
The Midweek Ski & Stay hotel package can offer everything you need for a mini winter vacation without the drive. The resort is located just outside Macungie, right on the boarder of Lehigh and Berks counties.
