Tracy here, from the fabulous Special Events department at Bear Creek. I'll be bringing you blog posts every so often.
Happy New Year! What a wonderful night we had at Bear on Saturday. It was so wonderful to see so many families; multi-generational I might add, having a great time together. We had planned to have a DJ for NYE to go along with a long night of skiing, but also Old Man Winter just has not woken up yet, so we changed gears about two weeks before the New Year to making it a full blown PARTY.
As planners we were inspired by the posts we saw on facebook. As an avid skier myself I understand the frustration of seeing December come and go without snow, so I wanted to give everyone a chance to fight back, or well wrestle out all that frustration! The giant sumo suits were a huge hit and so fun to watch, I bust out laughing at more than one match, guess you just can’t get tired of seeing someone roll around on the ground in a huge inflatable suit. To make sure there was a little something for everyone we also had a snowman making contest. This involved teams of three and an entire roll of toilet paper. Who knew toilet paper could be so fun. Then around 11:00pm when the families started toward home and a quiet night, the DJ really got started and out came the young crowd ready to mix it up. I have to say as an event planner, the whole night was so much fun for me. What joy it is to see families come together to celebrate, young couples toast the New Year and for friends to spend time having fun. I know we all would love to be on the mountain, but there is so much to Bear Creek that we can all appreciated having such a lovely resort right in our own backyard.
Have a wonderful New Year and follow our posts for more about our upcoming events.
