Finally, here’s this week’s edition of “What’s Up at 7000ft”.  This weekend’s highlights include the ongoing 43rd Annual Oktoberfest, the 14th Annual Big Bear Lake International Film Festival, the Autumn Wine Walk in the Village, the Kodiak 100 Ultramarathon Trail Run, and the10th Annual Hot Dawgz and Handrails Snowboarding Competition at Bear Mtn.  The day of Hot Dawgz and Handrails is always the last chance of the year to buy discounted season passes.  This time of year is also always the last chance to buy a home and get it on a rental program in time to have it rented for Thanksgiving (the traditional beginning of our winter rental season)!
Have a great weekend!
