Celebrate in the Snow at the Annual Torchlight Parade and NYE Parties

(Big Bear Lake, CA – December 26, 2013) – The holidays have come and gone, and New Year's Eve is right around the corner! This year forget the noisy, crowded bars and ring in 2014 at Bear Mountain and Snow Summit for an unforgettable New Year's Eve experience!

At Snow Summit, the annual New Year's Eve Torchlight Parade will begin at 7 p.m. The parade is free and open to all ages for viewing. It begins when over 200 staff and employees descend the mountain on skis and snowboards, each caring a torchlight.

Guests will have two parties to choose from this year, one at Snow Summit and one at Bear Mountain.

"The Snow Summit Torchlight Parade is an incredible New Year's Eve tradition," said Chris Riddle, Vice President of Marketing for Big Bear Mountain Resorts.  "With two great parties this year following the parade, there's no better place to spend New Year's Eve than here at Bear Mountain and Snow Summit. "
