Spartan Racers: Book 3 Nights & Get The Third Night FREE!!!

Wowrentals would like to inform you that Spartan Returns to Big Bear Lake on May 19-20, 2018 with a Beast and Sprint Weekend.

Care to take a guess why ski areas make such great venues for Spartan Races? Hills! You won’t be short on elevation gain during this race. Taking place on Snow Summit Mountain the race can access elevations as high as 8,200 ft and take you back down 1,200 ft of vertical drop.

You’ve never faced obstacles like this before. Spartan Race Big Bear is May 19 and 20 at Snow Summit where thousands of athletes converge to test their stamina and skill in one of three categories.

 

 

On Saturday, May 19, highly-skilled athletes take on the Spartan Beast, a 12-14 mile race with more than 30 signature Spartan obstacles. The Beast tests not only endurance, perseverance and grit, but also the mind.

The Spartan Sprint on Sunday, May 20, is a 3-5 mile sprint with more than 20 signature Spartan obstacles.

Both days feature Spartan kids races with half-mile, 1-mile and 2-mile courses.

Spectator tickets are available both days. Visit www.spartan.com or www.bigbearmountainresort.com for more information.

Those who are watching the racers can enjoy the Scenic Sky Chair and basecamp activities including a zip line, climbing wall, Eurobungee and quick jump (all for an additional $15 add-on to your spectator ticket). Stop by 20 activation booths for swag, branded gear and more. Finish the day with a jam session at the DJ stage.

 

WowRentals is offering a discount to all Spartan racers. Stay in one of our beautiful cabins for 3 nights and you will only pay for 2 nights! That’s right, anyone who is racing in any of the Spartan events and books 3 nights in one of our cabins will get the third night FREE!

Employee Profile – Agustin Florido

Me and my happy family!

Hello! My name is Agustin Florido and I am the Area Manager for WowRentals in Big Bear Lake, CA.  It has been almost 3 years since I moved to US with my wife and daughter from Argentina.  Since then I achieved a lot, I learned English (which I’m still learning every day), I got my first Job at Wyndham Resorts in Big Bear and moved up quickly from there until I landed here as Area Manager at WowRentals.  Next week will be my one year anniversary and I am very excited about what the future holds.  I have really learned a lot at WowRentals and I really enjoy taking care of our owners’ amazing homes and helping make guests vacations in a Big Bear Cabin a wonderful experience.  With significant determination and honesty I know I will hit my own goals and continue to help make WowRentals a great company.

Running in the scenic mountain trails of Big Bear!

In my spare time, I am an avid ultra runner.  Ultra marathons are my get away, the mountain is my home.  Last year I was able to run my first 100K under 16hours and I managed to finish in 3rd place general and 1st in my age group.  This year I have 2 goals,  finish Holcomb valley race under 5.30 hours (50k) and finishing 100 miles under 24 hours.

I am also a volunteer search and rescue member for San Bernardino Sheriff Departament.  I dedicate over 200 hours a year doing this.  We are not simply hikers, we train a lot, we learn navigation, and do tracking, ropes rescues, hoist, alpine searches in heavy weather conditions, from ice and snow at over 6000ft in mount baldy to Joshua tree in summer under 120 degrees with the mandatory uniform, most of the time off road and off trails.  Two weeks ago we had 2 searches the same week. First one a missing hiker in Mount Baldy, my team was assigned to one of thecanyons under BackBone trail (extremely dangerous trail in winter under ice conditions, 15 inches wide, most of the time the subject won’t survive a fall there).  After hiking for 2 miles in this canyon, we hit a small waterfall, as a team leader I checked the waterfall, was no way for us to go further without a ropes team to climb the waterfall, was too risky, I climb to an edge where I thought was possible to go to the other side, it wasn’t, again, dangerous for the team with the backpacks, 1 mistake and we will be needing the rescue. I saw and I heard on the other side of the waterfall a big boulder coming down (was during 2 days rain and foggy days) there I decided wasn’t safe for us to keep going, we called our command post and we turned back, calling the name of the subject at all times and trying to see or hear something under the fog. Long story short, the subject was located next day, less then 500 feet from the waterfall we couldn’t cross, unfortunately deceased for Hypothermia, we do our best but this time we couldn’t get to him in time.

Search and Rescue in a Chopper!

Two days later in Joshua Tree, a subject had been missing for 4 days.  This time we located the subject, alive, skull fracture with multiple other fractures of limbs as he had fallen 20 feet in the rocks and survived there for 4 days.  Amazing, pay off!

Last night I got call here in Big Bear, the worse for parents, 3 missing girls, 12 years old each, they were playing outside and later reported missing as night set in.   Three hours searching buildings and off road forest at night but lucky for everybody they were found, scared but alive and now safe back with the parents.

Being a part of SAR and volunteering is just my way of making a difference.
I love every time my daughter says to me, “somebody is lost, go find them, her mommy is worried!   Get the back home”.

Big Bear Cabin Rentals

Finding the Best Time to Go On Vacation to Big Bear Lake

Planning a vacation can be exciting, but also stressful, especially if you don’t know what the weather is going to be like when you get there. If you want to enjoy the many snow sports around the Big Bear cabin rentals, it’s important to know when to expect snow. If you want to go fishing on the lake during spring or summer, you should know whether it’s going to rain or if it’ll be too hot. Fortunately, there’s a lot you can glean from past weather patterns around the area.

During winter, there is certainly no shortage of snow, so ski, sled, or snowboard to your heart’s content. Throughout the winter months (January through March), you can expect:

  • Highs of 47-52◦F
  • Lows of 21-25◦F
  • Precipitation of 2.56-4.13 Inches
  • Snowfall of 14-16 Inches

Come the spring, the snow and rain settle down quite a bit and the weather gets much nicer. The spring is a great time to look into Big Bear cabin rentals if you want to do outdoor activities in warmer weather, but still want to drink a cup of hot cocoa before bed. From April to June, you can expect:

  • Highs of 59-76◦F
  • Lows of 29-42◦F
  • Precipitation of 0.16-0.94 Inches
  • Snowfall of 0-4 inches

For summer activities like fishing, canoeing, kayaking, and bird watching, summer is a great season. From July to September, average weather patterns predict the following:

  • Highs of 74-81◦F
  • Lows of 42-48◦F
  • Precipitation of 0.47-1.1 Inches
  • No Snowfall

One of the best times to visit Big Bear Lake is during the fall when it finally starts to cool off again. The season is full of cooler weather perfect for walks through nature which is alive with color as the trees begin to change. During the later winter months, snow will begin to fall, creating a wonderful, chilly atmosphere. From October to December, the weather predictions are:

  • Highs of 48-64◦F
  • Lows of 21-33◦F
  • Precipitation of 0.91-3.11 Inches
  • Snowfall of 1-12 Inches

Fortunately, no matter what season you’re planning on renting cabins around Big Bear Lake, there’s no shortage of fun activities to do. But always plan ahead so you can make the most out of your trip.

Winter Activities Around Big Bear Lake

Winter is one of the best seasons — but only if you’re in the right place at the right time. Otherwise, it’s either cold without the joy of snow, or you’re stuck in inches or feet of snow that you have to shovel and drive through. If that doesn’t exactly sound like the winter wonderland most people imagine, it’s time to hit the slopes.

By renting a couple Big Bear Lake cabins for the weekend, you and your friends or family can enjoy a few days in a winter wonderland. If you just can’t stand to leave, extend your stay for a few extra days and enjoy plenty of fun activities around the lake, such as:

  • Skiing
  • Sledding
  • Zip Lining
  • Snow Summit
  • Snow Shoeing
  • Bird Watching
  • Snowboarding
  • Inner Tube Racing

Scenic Views That Inspire

If you live close enough to Big Bear Lake, you can opt just to take a day trip. But one of the best ways to take it all in is to rent some cabins right on the lake. Surrounded by evergreen trees lightly dusted with snow, white-capped mountains, and the glassy surface of the lake, it’s like staying for a few days in a fairy tale.

Make Your Trip as Relaxing or Action-Packed as You Want

Because of the range of activities around Big Bear Lake during the winter, it’s easy to pick and choose something just right for your mood. A relaxing weekend getaway might include bird watching. (You might even spot a couple bald eagles.) Or perhaps sipping coffee in the cabins and enjoying the beauty of the sunrise and then catching up on some reading surrounded by nature is more your speed.

Action and sports enthusiasts can ride the slopes on their transport of choice: skis, snowboard, sled, or inner tube. Whatever the case, if you’re looking to actually enjoy the winter instead of just tolerating it, planning a trip to the Big Bear Lake cabins can be your chance.
