Sioux Falls Great Bear Recreation Area Closing Thursday
If you were thinking of heading out to Great Bear for a bit of hiking, tubing, snowboarding, or skiing tomorrow (February 9) you're going to need a change of plans.
Due to forecasted high winds in the area tomorrow, (north at 20 to 30 mph with gusts around 45 mph) Great Bear Ski Valley will be closed.
That's the bad news. The good news is they are planning to have extended hours for President's Day weekend (February 17-20). And, as always you can buy your tubing and lift tickets online in advance.
If you're just looking to learn how to participate in winter sports, Great Bear is also the place, as they offer lessons too. You might become the next Shaun White (or not)!
To stay on top of all things Great Bear Ski Valley, just go to their website or follow them on Facebook.
