About Bear Valley
Nestled half way between Tahoe and Yosemite, Bear Valley is rich in geologic, natural, and historical treasures. West of Bear Valley down Highway 4 is one of the state's most impressive groves of giant sequoia redwoods. Farther west is one of the most charming stretches of California's Gold Rush Country, filled with museums, limestone caverns, gourmet restaurants, Victorian-era bed-and-breakfast inns, antique stores, and a host of vineyards and wineries.
Where can you Ride Our Rentals?
The Ebbetts Pass area offers miles of wide groomed trails. Self guided tours include a map of the area and a SnoPark Pass. A Bear Valley Snowmobile crew patrols the trails and is ready to help if needed. Our snowmobiles ready to go at the following trail heads:
Lake Alpine - view Alpine Trail map
Spicer Reservoir - view Spicer Trail map
Bear Valley In Town - view Village map
We provide spectacular outdoor adventures the entire family can enjoy. All snowmobile drivers must be at least 18 years old with a valid driver's license. All of our rentals are late model Ski-Doos with hand and thumb warmers and electric starts for your comfort. All snowmobiles seat two people max - there is no charge for the passenger. Renters are required to provide their own transportation to and from the trailheads, 2-4 miles away unless you ride in the Village area which is right outside our front door. You will need a credit card for each rental contract and to sign a Release of Liability and Acknowledgement of Risk.
What about Little Kids?
For children younger then five years old we offer a specially designed front pack "Kid Karrier" for children as young as two. Another great option for the kids is to rent the people carrier - available in the Bear Valley Village only - this "limo" seats two, up to 250lbs - see picture to the right.
What about Elderly or Disabled?
For those of us without the muscular strength, coordination, or you are just tired from a long day skiing, snowmobiling lets you see mother nature at her grandest in the wintertime. Snowmobiling primarily uses your arms and thumb to control the throttle. Many who are unable to walk, ski, or snow shoe can still enjoy the winter wilderness on snowmobiles.
What Should I Bring
Snacks & Drinks in a BACK PACK (no storage on the snowmobiles)
Dress in layers along with boots for ice and snow conditions
Snow Chains that fit your car tires (required by law to be carried in your car)
