Polar Bear Plunge

Big Bear Vacations & the Polar Bear Plunge
There are certain things that tug at your heart strings. Supporting the community and on an even bigger level, supporting all people in need is definitely up there on the “warm fuzzy” list.

 

Date: March 4, 2017
Time: 10 a.m. to 12 p.m.
Location: Big Bear Lake, California

This year marks the 6th Annual Polar Bear Plunge and it’s for a really great cause – the Special Olympics. All funds are donated to Special Olympics of Southern California. What better way to spend your Saturday? Donate $50 for a great cause, jump in some icy water and party with your friends! I mean coming to Big Bear Lake is all about the party right? If you want to get super crazy add a costume to that mix – get down with your crazy polar bear self!

On a serious note, Special Olympics heavily relies on volunteers and donations in order to provide opportunities to their athletes to compete in competitions, continued education and athlete health. By participating in this event you can make a difference.

“Special Olympics Southern California enriches the lives of more than 28,000 athletes with intellectual disabilities and their communities in Southern California through sports, education and athlete help.” – (www.sosc.org)

If you are unable to plunge into Big Bear Lake, you can still help. Visit www.sosc.org for more information.

“Special Olympics Southern California provides year-round sports training and athletic competition in a variety of Olympic-type sports for children and adults with intellectual disabilities, giving them continuing opportunities to develop physical fitness, demonstrate courage, experience joy and participate in a sharing of gifts, skills and friendship with their families, other Special Olympics athletes and the community.” – (www.sosc.org)

Big Bear Vacations staff will be participating in the Plunge – so come join us! We would love to see you there.

LOVE IS IN THE AIR!!!

With Valentine’s Day just around the corner, Big Bear Lake is the perfect romantic getaway. Snow, Mountains, Lake…. You can choose to stay cozy next to a fire, venture out for a day of skiing or snowboarding, or stroll around the Village to do some shopping!

Lil Pine Cabin – This adorable cabin is perfect for two people that are looking for rest, relaxation and privacy. Cozy up next to the wood burning stove and watch a movie. The dining table is absolutely perfect for a candlelit dinner for two. Surprise your loved one with flowers and wine and enjoy each other’s company away from the city. If you are looking to surprise your significant other, or you are planning this trip together, Lil Cabin is an ideal spot for romance.

Peaceful Pines – One of my favorite cabins on our program. It’s just dang cute. The spa located on the back deck overlooks pine trees and is perfect for sipping champagne while star gazing. It’s also perfect on those chilly mornings with a cup of coffee. Watching the sun come up with your significant other is about as romantic as it gets. The leather sectional couch that surrounds the wood burning fireplace is perfect for snuggling up with a blanket to watch a romantic movie. (Please see Hallmark channel for cheesy, happy romance!) Located in the Moonridge area you will be close to the slopes, but far enough away you can have the privacy you seek for your romantic trip to Big Bear Lake!!

Village Hideaway – For the couple that wants to bring their children and/or fur babies, this home is ideal. A fenced backyard allows your puppies and children to run around and work off some excess energy, while you relax and let the mountains soothe away the stress of every day life. The couches and chairs around the wood burning fireplace create a happy, cozy atmosphere where you can hang out while the family barbecuing expert hones his/her skills on the propane BBQ. Roast smores in the wood burning fireplace and bring back your inner child. Hide treasures around the cabin and create a Valentine’s treasure hunt for your kids!

Big Bear Lake has something for everyone! Don’t miss out on a romantic getaway to the mountains!
