                  Owner info

                  Year Purchased: 2013

                  About the owner: Hello, I'm Loretta Marie, and I am so happy you chose to view my beautiful 'Swiss Chalet at the Slopes' of Snow Summit. I have several other Vacation Rentals at the beach in Encinitas, California which can also be found on VRBO (# 479554 and # 480169) and so I offer you this wonderful mountain home with the desire to provide another wonderful, vacation experience. My family and I have traveled from Encinitas to Big Bear Lake to ski and snowboard for several decades now. We had wanted to purchase a home next to the slopes of Snow Summit each time we rented a vacation home and have looked at thousands of properties throughout the years. Finally, we found this beautiful, Swiss Chalet we are now proud to call home. As like with every other snow loving family, we want to continue to enjoy our Snow Summit adventures with the next generation and so we look forward to making new memories here at our 'Swiss Chalet' for many years to come. We hope you will join us in creating these new memories with your own family and friends at Snow Summit Ski resort's most versatile and affordable Swiss Chalet that can be rented in three ways to accommodate almost any size family or just a couple looking to get away. There will be no more trying to get a decent parking spot, paying high prices for meals at the resort... unless you really want to, or waiting in long lines or on the phone to get your lift tickets at peak hours. For a relaxing stay at our 'Swiss Chalet', we will all simply buy our groceries for the week and then ski or snowboard with out ever driving again... unless we really want to. This will be wonderful for families with kids of all ages, snow boarders in college, skiers who want the best, and couples looking for romantic views of the slopes, day or night.

                  Why the Owner Chose Snow Summit:
                  Being in the best location next door to the slopes as well as close to the lake, Village, and shopping are the main reasons to choose to stay at our vacation home, however the Swiss theme of this charming chalet will make your stay feel even more memorable; just as if you were in the heart of Europe on an incredible Alpine adventure. Some of the Swiss décor includes the Matterhorn Bedroom and for an additional fee; the beautiful St. Moritz Bedroom which will be sure to keep your additional family and friends comfortable. There are also plenty of board games, darts, a poker table, a bumper pool table, and during summer; an outdoor ping pong table. Parents and couples can bring their favorite wines for the wine bar and pour them from our happy, bear holder. For the chef in the family, the Swiss kitchen is well equipped with a gas stove, modern appliances, a crock pot, toaster,blender, mixer, coffee maker, pots and pans, bake ware, flatware, dishware and a dishwasher to clean up. For a good night's sleep, there's a queen bed in the Matterhorn bedroom, a queen sofa bed and twin pull out ottoman bed in the living room. For an extra fee; rent the St Moritz Master Suite. All bath towels and bed linens are provided as well as beach towels in summer for your days at Swim Beach at the lake or for your days of water skiing on your own private boat or rental. Most of us find it difficult to be with out the internet or the latest electronics so for your convenience, your stay at the 'Swiss Chalet at the Slopes' of Snow Summit includes wireless internet for your own lap top, plus an iPod charging station that can play your favorite songs on the speakers with a radio/DVD/USB/ and I-Pod stereo player. There are also several flat screen TV's, cable, DVD players, and Play Station gaming equipment. Although you'll be surrounded by beautiful mountain vistas and could do away with the rest of the world, you're still connected.

                  The Unique Benefits at this Condo:
                  Most of us can not just take off to Europe for a ski vacation in the Swiss Alps, but the 'Swiss Chalet at the Slopes' of Snow Summit really is the next best thing to being there. It's located in Big Bear Lake, Ca. which is part of the beautiful San Bernardino County Mountains and is only a short car ride away from LA, San Diego, Riverside, and Orange Counties. It is simply the perfect mountain retreat with Snow Summit Resort next door offering year round fun. With world class snow making, skiing, and boarding during the snow fall months and mountain biking and zip-lining during the rest of the year, anytime will be a great time to visit. So whether you want to ski, ride a mountain bike, hike, bird watch, golf, gaze at the stars, shop, or go fishing or boating, our 'Swiss Chalet at the Slopes' of Snow Summit will make your wishes come true in comfort, beauty, and with adventure.
