Bear Valley is a special place for many. It provides the unique combination of world class terrain, majestic natural beauty, a full spectrum of winter sports and summer outdoor activities with an affordable, convenient location and a family oriented environment. It is the vision of Bear Valley Snow Sports Education Foundation and Bear Valley Mountain to leverage this combination of assets into firmly establishing Bear Valley as the premier family destination in the Sierras.

In order for BVSEF to accomplish its Mission and achieve its goals, funds must be raised on an ongoing basis. In recent years, BVSEF funded scholarships, coach’s education, video equipment, computer and video analysis software, radios, safety equipment and race gates.

Our funds typically are generated from donations, sponsorships, fund raising events and USSA race activities at Bear Valley which are organized by BVSEF. Our ability to realize our vision to see Bear Valley acknowledged as one of the top snow sports development destination in the Sierras is only limited by the number of members willing to assist in our efforts.

Our members can support BVSEF by their donations, seeking sponsorships and by volunteering their time to assist with our events. With your support we can continue our work and do much more.

It is easy to donate to BVSEF. New this season is our Supporter Program which enables individuals to financially support BVSEF and be acknowledged with a Supporter Pin and be listed on the website Supporter page.  We have set contribution levels as follows:
