MACUNGIE, PA. – Bear Creek Mountain Resort has invested $800,000 in improvements for this winter season that includes a new groomer, outdoor Rock Garden, seasonal rental program and a retail store, Slopeside Sports.
A fifth groomer, a piston bully 600 with winch attachment, has been added to our fleet of mountain groomers. This groomer will enhance the grooming of our most technical trails, therefore providing optimal snow conditions on these trails.

The seasonal rental program includes skiing and snowboarding equipment. Ski packages include Volkl Rtm skis with Marker bindings and Dalbello boots. Snowboard packages include a Head tribute board with Head boots and bindings. In addition, seasonal rentals include a complimentary tuning card valid for three free tunes during the course of the winter. Seasonal rentals can be purchased in the Tune Shop.
Slopeside Sports, the retail store, is located in the plaza, next to the Tune Shop. The store will be open daily during the winter months and carries over 50 top brands of soft goods. The majority of the shop is compiled of NorthFace, Burton, Oakley, Electric, Neff, Red and Skullcandy products.
