Property description

*SKI IN / SKI OUT
*VIEW PROPERTY
*YEAR AROUND HOT TUB
*150 YARDS TO BEAR LAKE
* YEAR AROUND PRIVACY
* US SCENIC BYWAY
* FINE WINE DISTRICT
* Carson WILDERNESS
* Top Notch DOWNHILL & CROSS COUNTRY SKIING
* FAMILY ORIENTED

HOME RUN is a large, kid and pet-friendly ski chalet 99 steps to the downhill's Home Run to the village and a five minute walk to the lake; truly, a pristine ski-in and ski-out environment. It stays pristine because vehicles cannot reach the homes above the village as we are snowed in for most of the winter. (A recent SUNSET magazine article described Bear Valley as the holder of the one month US snowfall record-39 feet!)

Therefore, alternative transportation such as a snowmobile (rentals @ Alpine or BV Snowmobile 753-2620) can be provided. You can walk, snowshoe and ski everywhere-we're just a mile from the lodge. Don't worry, this only adds to the adventure and kids love it.

This newly updated home is perfect for two families. The upstairs bedroom has a new queen bed and the loft has a new fold-out couch and futon. This floor is situated so that it enjoys spectacular morning color. The first floor bedroom has a new king bed and attached tile bath with radiant heat. The dining table seats ten. There is no television service at HOME RUN, but there is a ROKU home theater with NETFLIX, a piano, a fireplace, a nice view and more stars than you've ever seen; it is in one of NATIONAL GEOGRAPHIC's Dark Spots (AUG '08).

Many of our guests prefer the warmer seasons-colorful SPRING wildflowers on our creek, the golden aspens of AUTUMN and the beauty of a perfect BV SUMMER during the annual Music Festival. After a full day of activities perhaps enjoy a local fine wine in the private all-season hot tub. It is on 1300 square feet of decking and provides the setting for a stunning alpenglow experience.

Those who love Bear Valley for its solitude also love the ease of the journey. There are no mountain passes to traverse hence no avalanche closures; just straight up hwy. 4 from Murphys through the foothill's wine country, only 30 snow miles to the summit near Ebbetts Pass. The wide US SCENIC BYWAY to the mountain is always open. This is the closest ski resort to the Bay Area and definitely the easiest to travel.

Feel free to stop at Val du Vino winery in Murphys and receive our discount.

*** Please open the attached US BYWAY link if you have further interest in this extraordinary wilderness area @ www.scenic4.org ***

This is a tight, cozy ski house on a ridge above Bear Valley Village and as Lloyd Bridges once said in a TV piece..'Bear Valley is the hidden treasure of the Sierra.'


*** WELCOME WARM SPRING.***


Week long discounts are available.

Even though there have been many upgrades, we have not raised prices in years, enjoy!

Owner info

Year Purchased: 1990

About the owner: Although we live in Monterey, Bear Valley is our much- beloved sanctuary.

Why the Owner Chose Bear Valley:
My brother and I were skiing the central Sierra in the late 80's and never left. The idea of being at this altitude in a Wilderness area in a town of 125 people but with full amenities was extremely compelling.

The Unique Benefits at this Chalet:
*SKI IN/SKI OUT *VIEW PROPERTY *YEAR AROUND HOT TUB *150 YARDS TO BEAR LAKE * PRIVACY
