          No they do not allow pets, unless it is a service dog. you need to provide proof that it Is a service dog. Each unit is individually owned at Black Bear. Unit 314 is very nice.

          Hi, does the shuttle run to the athletic center? How often?

          Response from sherrylyn5 | Reviewed this property |
          Yes, the shuttle runs to the Athletic Center. I am not sure of the times as it changes during the winter. During ski season the shuttle comes to black bear ever 20 minutes or so then makes the loop around the Valley area.
