Yea for a intermediate to advanced rider I would never go to Bear Creek, especially if you're into groomers. The trails are short and the lines are long. However the beginner lessons are good( they are partnered with burton learn to ride) and the park is pretty good.
I've been at bear alot over the last couple weeks, hasn't been icey. It is a small mountain but it def has some good progression to its parks. Small kinda big and then big. Runs would be much better if they were longer. Thats my only real complaint. Also the locals are cool/ nice.
