SHUTTLE INFORMATION

Sunday, January 25 - 4 PM - 6:30 PM

A free shuttle will run every 15 minutes with pick-up at the Pemberton Valley Lodge and the Pemberton Community Centre parking lots as well as the Old Highways Yard behind the Visitor Centre.


FOOT TRAFFIC

We recommend accessing One Mile Lake via the trail that leaves from beside the Old Highway's Yard / Community Garden or via the boardwalk off of Highway 99.

If you're going to enjoy the evening festivities on Sunday night, we suggest you bring a head lamp or two for your walks to and from the lake.


POLAR BEAR PLUNGE TIPS

  1. If you have a heart condition - just watch the event!
  2. Children must be with and stay with an adult while in the water.
  3. Please leave your dog at home.
  4. Do not drink - alcohol does not warm you up - it accelerates hypothermia.
  5. Do not stay in the water longer than 15 minutes. Body heat is lost 25 times faster in water than in the air.
  6. Keep your clothing on until plunge time.
  7. After your plunge, visit the Innergex tent on-site for hot chocolate and free gift.
