BVAC was purchased, from the original owners of 40 years, by the Bear Valley Mountain Cooperative (BVMC) in December 2018. The original owners built a reputable business based on quality and integrity. The BVMC is a community-based group of 400+ individuals that are motivated in the betterment of Bear Valley. BVAC is at the forefront of this investment and is poised to reinvest profits back into the company to maintain and improve BVAC offerings and services.
BVAC & COVID-19:
BVAC is experiencing a surge of people visiting the mountains and enjoying the outdoors, and the inherent social distancing encouraged for COVD-19 precautions. BVAC is preparing for a busy winter season and is making changes to provide a safe working environment for both staff and guests. It's becoming increasingly important for people to find and participate in outdoor activities that offer "healthy spacing." We think BVAC is uniquely positioned to provide meaningful and memorable outdoor experiences this winter. If you are interested in joining a fun and motivated team, this could be the right job for you.
