Bear Valley, The Only Resort in Central Sierra with Sanctioned USSA Approved Course This weekend’s Activities Includes Jib Jam Event, Tubing Hill, Skiing and Snowboarding

Bear Valley, Calif., (January 22, 2014) – This weekend the Bear Valley Race Team will host the first USSA race for the Far West Central Series ages U8 – U 14. Teams from Dodge Ridge, Badger Pass and China Peak will meet at Bear Valley for training on Friday, January 24 and races will take place Saturday and Sunday, January 25 and January 26...

Michele Morizinski at Race start in Rasmussen Classic 2012. Bear Valley Racers Michele Morizinski and April Johnson have a little fun after training for upcoming race.

This race originally scheduled for January 11 was rescheduled to this weekend to allow for more snow. While Bear Valley received approximately three inches in January, the path that led to approval by the Chief of Race for Bear Valley to host the race was the result of snowmaking and snow maintenance strategies implemented by Bear Valley’s Mountain Operations teams. The Resort has been making snow to supplement its base since November 15 and continues to make snow as conditions allow.

According to director of Mountain Operations, Chris Aguirre, Bear Valley has more than a million gallons of water available to make snow. Decisions to make snow are based on temperatures and humidity levels. “Our snowmaking teams and groomers have done a great job of providing a quality product for the general public and getting this course ready for the race,” said Aguirre. “I’m proud of our teams. Conditions like these are challenging, and these guys have done an unbelievable job. Guests that have experienced our terrain are very surprised at the quality of the conditions. My hat is off to the team.”

To register for the race, participants can click on the “Rasmussen Classic” post on the home page at

Bear Valley will also host the first “Jib Jam” of the season this weekend. A jib jam is when a mini-snow park is designed for boarders and skiers to demonstrate their skills on a variety of park features, typically rails and boxes. Participants are scored on tricks and prizes awarded. Bear Valley’s Park crew, led by former x-gamer Mike Schimke, have begun course design and are planning new urban recycled features for participants to show-off their moves. Registration opens 9:00am in the sunroom, and helmets are required for event.

The Resort’s tubing hill is open weekends beginning at 11am. Cost to tube is $15/per participant. Children age five and under may ride with adult. Purchase tubing passes in the sunroom or in the Main Office at the base lodge of the ski area.
