It was a great season – even though it’s been short! Thanks to everyone, coaches, volunteers, parents and athletes for an awesome season.

The link above will take you to the site that has been set up for this year’s event. Since we were unable to run the race, we thought that you will still want to get a tee-shirt, sweatshirt, etc. This way you get the style, color and size that you want!
Have fun shopping!

2014 Victor Alvarez Memorial Race and Silent Auction
UPDATE: Silent Auction begins at 10 am and bidding closes at 3 pm.
The 18th Annual Victor Alvarez Memorial race and silent auction is scheduled for this Saturday, March 8th – but with a bit of a twist. Due to warm temperatures and a lack of natural snow, we’re not going to be able to run the race portion of the event this year. “To put on a quality dual slalom race you need to have plenty of snow to withstand multiple runs all day long” said Chris Riddle, V.P. of Marketing for Big Bear Mountain Resorts. “This year, we just don’t have the depth or width we need to safely run the race without impacting the skiing and snowboarding experience for our regular customers.”
This is the first time in 18 years that we are not running the race portion of the event but we’re still going to have a party and the silent auction is going to be bigger and better than ever. Some of the items in the silent auction are lodging packages to Lake Tahoe, Desert Hot Springs, San Diego and Anaheim (with Disneyland passes included). You’ll also find plenty of ski and snowboard clothing and gear, wakeboards, skateboard decks, gift certificates and MORE! The auction is held in the lower level of Bear Bottom Lodge and is open to the public. Join us for some great deals and help us remember our friend, Victor Alvarez!
