Yes.

A person must be taller than 48″ to ride the slides.

Slide the Slopes requires all riders to be at least 4 years old and 48” tall. Riders must be 55” tall to ride the lift alone. We restrict lap riding for the safety of all sliders.  Most 4-year olds are able to ride alone, but you must make this decision for your child / dependent, we cannot make this decision for you. 

 

Yes! We would love to celebrate with you! There are a couple tables outside the lodge that you can use to gather before, during and after your sliding session. No outside food and beverage is allowed. However, we do allow birthday cakes. To really elevate your party, contact Bear Creek Mountain Resort about renting a conference room to party in.

 

We offer discounts for families of 4 and groups larger than 10. When booking, just look for the “Family 4 Pack” or the “Slopes Group Rate”. The “Family 4 Pack” is a 15% discount only valid for 4 tickets. The “Slopes Group Rate” is a 25% discount for 10 tickets or more.

 

When you purchase a ticket, you purchase an arrival time and a 2-hour sliding time period.  We space out the arrival times to keep the lines short and give you as much time to ride the slides as possible.  To get in the fastest, sign your waiver in advance!  Directions for the waiver are sent with purchased tickets.
