The winter blues tend to set in sometime in January. The hustle, bustle, and warmth of the holidays have concluded, and the wintry landscape found outside your door has somehow lost the charm and appeal it once had. White Christmases are magical experiences, but slushy Januarys are simply no fun! If you find yourself with a case of seasonal depression, however, the best way to overcome can be by heading on a January journey to Big Bear and attending any of these exciting events in Big Bear that are taking place during the month!
Events in Big Bear: Movies in the Meadows, Winter Session, Snow Summit Base Area
Some people may think it silly to travel somewhere just to watch a movie in the snow, but we say life is short, just go for it! The movies are held twice a month from December through April and are free to attend. January’s movies will be held on January 5th (Ratatouille) at 5 PM and on January 19th (The Crood’s) also at 5 PM. Bring a chair, bring a blanket, and lose yourself in the magic of winter!
Bald Eagle Celebration at the Big Bear Discovery Center
What many people may not know is that Big Bear is a popular bald eagle habitat, and if you visit on January 12, 2019, you have two ways to celebrate. Volunteer to help count the eagles, which helps us keep track of these magnificent birds, or simply attend the celebration, where you will learn all about these symbols of American patriotism and why they choose Big Bear for their winter home!
USASA Slopestyle #1 and #2 at Bear Mountain
The United States of America Snowboard and Freeski Association sponsors a show of the best boarders and skiers in the nation, and Bear Mountain is home to more than a few of the shows. Their January expositions will be held on January 13thfrom 10:15 AM through 12:30 PM and on January 27thfrom 4:00 until 5:00 PM. Prepare to be stunned at the talent of these young men and women, and don’t be surprised if your own children find themselves dreaming to be just like them when they grow up!
