Roads in Bear Valley–Where to find out about road closure
Roads need at least 20″ of snow for roads to be closed. Road closure information:
- Snowphone for parking information: 209-753-6155 (but the message is sometimes not up-to-date),
- Bear Valley Snowmobile Storage 209-753 2600 (they keep messages up to date)
- www. bvri.org (this website), or
- Bear Valley Nextdoor.
If roads are open, remember, parked cars must be completely off the road, so you may need to shovel a spot.
When roads are closed you need to park cars in designated spots and obey move days, and snowmobiles must be entirely off the roads so that the groomer can pass.
Make sure to check out the Cars and Snowmobile for tips and guidelines about winter parking of cars and snowmobiles. The following is a map for parking snowmobiles when you are around the village: Snowmobile Parking Map
