Happy Memorial Day to all, especially all those who are currently serving or who have served!
Below are a couple of events and new stories that are going on in the Big Bear area, for those of you who may be interested.
First, for those of you interested in mountain biking, there’s great news from the Resort Association: “The Big Bear Valley Trails Foundation will celebrate the kickoff of construction on the Skyline Trail and premiere the award-winning documentary Pedal-Driven on Saturday, June 2, 2012. Skyline Trail, the first new trail in the Big Bear Lake area in almost 2 decades, is a 15 mile world-class multi-use single track planned along the top of the San Bernardino Mountains between the Big Bear and Santa Ana River Valleys in the San Bernardino National Forest. Skyline will offer stunning panoramic views, promote responsible forest stewardship, and attract visitors from far and wide. Complimenting the kickoff celebration is the Inland Empire premiere of “Pedal Driven,” a documentary film focusing on social and environmental issues of national importance – how we determine legitimate and acceptable uses of our public lands. The film’s goal is to engage Americans in a constructive and collaborative dialogue about where trail use belongs in the American landscape. The trail celebration, titled “Kick and Flick”, will take place at Northwoods Resort located at 40650 Village Drive, Big Bear Lake, CA, 92315. The free event will take place from 6:00 p.m. to 9:00 p.m. and will include complimentary food, movie refreshments, and a no-host bar. A trailer for the movie can be seen at: http://pedaldriven.howellatthemoon.com/videostrailers. The Skyline Trail is a collaboration of the Big Bear Valley Trails Foundation, the San Bernardino National Forest, and the International Mountain Biking Association”.
Second, as many of you know, besides being a beautiful place to live and play, Big Bear has a fantastic school system. Below is a link to a recent issue of U.S. News and World report in which Big Bear High School received a Silver Medal and was named one of the top schools in CA as well as the country (top 8% Nation-wide).

Once again, have a happy and safe holiday!
