Analysing terrain data
Great Bear is a blue, un-groomed trail with all natural snow and is in a quiet area.
To access this location, you will need to take the Snowdon Quad from the base.
The Snowdon Quad is a long and extremely slow ride up.
So, prepare for that.
Exit the lift to the left.
Proceed towards your right and pass the corner of the tree run marked 'Low Rider.' This trail gets a lot of traffic so beware.
Proceed down Upper Chute which gets icy, especially later in the day as it gets little sun.
It has a double fall line and so it is not a beginner or intermediate snowboarder’s friend.
At the skier’s left on the corner of Chute and Low Rider glades, go left on to Great Bear.
It will have moguls but they are of a medium size and always have natural snow.
The trail is similar to Northstar except it has less pitch.
One thing to be aware of is, at the bottom of the trail where it meets with Caper, there is a stream that is often exposed.
You may have to either jump the stream, find a narrow band of snow to get over it or boot out, depending on conditions and the time of year.
If it is mid winter, this is a non-issue.
This trail has low light and is usually in the shade.
Perfect for people looking for a fun blue mogul run with natural snow.
