You Have A Say
Unique to any other resort in California, your Co-op will champion and co-fund improvement projects that are long term in focus, additive, important to our members, and benefit the overall experience at Bear Valley.
The Co-op will have a voting seat on the Bear Valley-Skyline board that will allow us to be aware of topics that impact the mountain and the Co-op. Any membership funds spent will requested by Bear Valley-Skyline and then approved by a majority vote of its membership.
The Co-op has elected a membership representative board that will focus on delivering a valuable member experience and work with Bear Valley-Skyline as they develop, market, and bring new visitors and members to Bear Valley. The board has seven seats, six elected by the Co-op membership and one appointed by Skyline. Two of those elected seats come up for election each year.
As shareholders, members are not responsible for the liabilities or losses of the Co-op or the resort. Members' only risk is the amount each has invested. You will enjoy benefits, experience accelerated improvements, and be part of a unique collaborative component of the community.
> Under the Skyline collaboration all financial risks of operating the mountain are assumed by Skyline
> If the resort is sold, Skyline has committed to return all money invested by the cooperative, with the exception of a the Co-op's small operating expense budget.
> The Co-op has the option to move forward with a new partner if the resort is ever sold.
> If you move or no longer need your share, you can sell your membership back to the co-op, subject to the bylaws and a $250 fee to account for operating expenses
