Winter Fun Returning To Great Bear This Weekend


Winter fun has only begun for skiing and tubing fans, as Great Bear is getting ready for an exciting weekend.

Great Bear ski valley is expecting a big turnout.

“Yeah, it’s going to be busy. We don’t have 100 percent of the hill open quite yet but we’re working on that; we need some more cold weather, but they can expect to have a lot of fun when they come out,” Great Bear General Manager Dan Grider said.

Partially because their Tubing lanes open Friday.

“Tubing tickets will be $9 and you can tube all night until 10 p.m. We also have our ski hill open with limited ski runs for skiing and snowboarding. There will be lessons available; you can get rentals,” Marketing Director Alexis Giebink said.

If you’re new to the park, there’s plenty of things to help you get acquainted.

“You can take a ski lesson, or try your hand at snowboarding but anyone can come out tubing; we have a conveyer belt that will bring you up to the top so you don’t have to hike up to the top of the tubing hill,” Giebink said.

If you’re looking to kick off your Winter weekend in style, Great Bear offers tons of activities for friends and family; One of them being laser tubing.

“Well, what we do is at 9:30 on a Saturday night we close down the area, shut off all the lights, turn on our laser lights, get our music pumping, and it’s a two hour party,” Grider said.

And despite their being a shortage of snow this year, there’s no shortage of spirit.

“Yeah, we invite everyone to come out to Great Bear this weekend! Even though there hasn’t been a lot of natural snow, we’ve been busy making our own manmade snow, so we’ve got plenty of snow for skiing a tubing this weekend,” Giebink said.

This weekend is also $5 for fifth grade students, a college night on Saturday, and you can get tubing tickets for ten dollars and $15 for skiing and snowboard lifts.
