Bear Creek – Snowriver, MI

Bear Creek was initially marketed as a third ski area between Jackson Creek Summit and Black River Basin. No more lifts were added after this one and today it is connected to Jackson Creek Summit.
This lift is the only one at Snowriver with bail double chairs, which likely came from another ski area.

    In the comments on the first and second pictures, it still says Indianhead, Blackjack, and Big Snow. If possible, this needs to be updated to Jackson Creek, Black River Basin, and Snowriver. Also, rode this lift a couple years back, and it was and still is my favorite lift at Jackson Creek.
