We’ve got great snow conditions as we write this, but we all know ski season will eventually end. So to our ski enthusiasts, we encourage you to book your getaway without delay. For those of you willing to wait until March (when snow may still be good, but…) here are some of the great activities you can incorporate in your getaway to a Five Star Vacation Rental in Big Bear.
Once a year Big Bear attracts those brave souls who actually arrive with the intent to immerse themselves into the frigid winter waters of Big Bear Lake. While we’re definitely more inclined to dive into a glass of red wine next to a comfy fireplace during these cold days, this annual activity helps support a great cause. The 8th Annual Big Bear Lake “Polar Plunge” for Special Olympics takes place on Saturday, March 2nd. This is a great cause and a lot of fun. And best of all, you can be a sponsor, and never even get near the water. Check out the ways to participate at their website: http://www.sosc.org/bigbearplunge
That same weekend of March 2-3, give your Scout the opportunity to test their knowledge and on-hill skills while earning a Snow Sports Merit Badge at Bear Mountain’s annual Scout Weekend. BSA Merit Badge counselors will be on hand to evaluate Scouts and help them work towards Merit Badges. To participate, Scouts must bring their Snow Sports Merit Badge workbook and Blue Cards. Boy Scouts and Girl Scouts are welcome. All scouts participating on Scout Weekend will receive a Bear Mountain Scout Weekend Patch 2019. For more information call 909.866.5766 ext 136 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
On March 8-10th, you’ll want to attend the Supergirl Snow Pro at Bear Mountain. This is a top-level Boardercross (SBX) and Half-pipe competition with the world’s top female pros and a slew of up-and-coming amateur talent. The event is designed to not only showcase the best female snowboarders on the planet, but also to also serve as a developmental contest to help locate, nurture, mentor and encourage the next generation of aspiring snowboarding pros. Free to watch. For info on participating, visit their website at https://supergirlsnowpro.com
