“Revamp Your Staff and Management”

Great Bear Recreation Park
Reviewed 3 April 2013

The girls selling tickets were rude, snotty teenagers who didn't seem to care about anything to do with their job. They were rude to my two boys and serveral adults asking about pricing. I saw one manager present-she seemed as aloof and rude as the employees selling tickets. GM or whoever runs the place should invest in retraining, or rehiring.

Terrible service from lift/rentals to food, very much a take-it-or-leave-it attitude from a young staff. Helmet rentals are not available, only purchase, which gives you an idea on the legal advice they are getting for liability from personal injury.There was little is any grooming at lift entry and exit, very icy at the exit. A singles line which merges into multiples would make the lift line move faster. Discourteous skiers in the line, especially early teens who cut in - worst I have experienced with midwestern ski slopes. Speaking from experience, everything was overpriced for what you get. Facility needs professional help for ski and food service management. Expansion is a must for this slope to survive. Recommend skiing there as a last resort in lieu of driving and staying somewhere else for the weekend.

Not much more than that. I guess for the location in the midwest it is about as good as it gets. The tubing is proably more of an attraction the sking.

Sledding, snowboarding, and skiing in Sioux Falls SD?
Yep.
Be sure to go if there is real snow.
Much safer than Tuthill.

Great Bear is good if you are going to just keep up with skiing a little or are a first time snow boarder but don't expect to be challenged. We appreciate it in our area but it is not a real great slope. Still please go there so we can keep it.
