For Fun

What else is there to do at BV? Bear Valley is a small alpine village offering restaurants and pubs, a general store, sport shop and snowmobile center. During the winter months, most activities around the village are geared toward snow sports, whether cross-country skiing, snowshoeing or snowmobiling. Although Bear Valley does not offer up the same nightlife opportunities as Lake Tahoe (like casinos or large nightclubs), Bear Valley’s local population is sure to keep you entertained. Often live music or movie nights in the Village pubs, a monthly book club meets at the local library, there's weekly yoga classes, and there are often daytime activities happening at the mountain. Within just over an hour’s drive are world-class golf courses, wine tasting, movie theaters, bowling alleys and Casinos. Throughout the season Bear Valley also offers destination trips to places like Lake Tahoe and Yosemite.
