2020-2021 Winter Sports Opening Day

Macungie, Pa.– Bear Creek Mountain Resort is a four-season resort located in Macungie, Pa., just miles from I-78. The ski resort is a premier destination with beginner-friendly staff and slopes. 
With the help of mother nature this week, the Mountain Operations Team at Bear Creek has announced they will be open for skiing and snowboarding on Monday December 21st from 9am-9pm.
“The coating we received last week got everyone excited, and hopefully this early winter storm will make for a promising ski season,” says Marketing Content Strategist, Arialle Hess.
Although the management team at Bear Creek announced its opening date, they are still taking the health and safety of guests and staff into consideration. Starting the ski season during the holidays can be cause for concern regarding overcrowding, but Gary Kline was confident in the resort’s plan to keep both guests and employees safe during this time of uncertainty.
“The first week of the 20/21 winter season will only be open to season passholders and hotel guests to ensure we don’t over crowd the slopes,” says Director of Marketing and Guest Experience, Gary Kline.
The resort has been making changes to their Winter Operational Plan over the past few weeks, with the most recent update published on December 11th. The update included operational changes that reflected the state mandates that were put in effect earlier that week.
“Guests should be aware that the Lodge and Mountain Eatery will only be open for use of restrooms and take-out food options. All other amenities including lockers, basket check, seating, and game room will not available,” says Gary Kline.
These operational changes will stay in effect even after the resort opens the slopes to day-guests on December 28th. The new e-commerce platform for ticket purchasing will be made available to guests exactly one week prior. On Monday, December 21st all guests will be able to go online and purchase day-tickets, rentals, and register for select ski school programs.
“This online platform will make the purchasing process much smoother. It will also allow the transition from the car to the slopes to be super quick and easy,” says Arialle Hess.
Aside from booting-up in your car, the resort plans on providing the same great winter fun as always. Before hitting the slopes, guests can read the complete Winter Operational Plan with all current updates. And if you want to ski on opening day, season passes can still be purchased via Bear Creek’s website.
