WHY JUMP IN LAKE VERMILION IN FEBRUARY?
Because it's fun, benefiting a great cause, and you have the chance to win prizes! In 2013 over 200 onlookers watched as 14 teams of Splashers made their way to the icy water hole to benefit the United Way of Northeastern MN's three youth initiatives: Buddy Backpacks, Smiles Across MN – Iron Range and the Imagination Library.
The Arctic Splash takes place in conjunction with the BayView Blast snowmobile ride. In 2013, 50 riders participated.
The 2013 BayView Blast / Arctic Splash raised $50,716, representing a 31% increase over last year!
Participating in the Splash is easy, (really, it's not that bad). As an individual jumper or as a team, you will collect money from sponsors (a.k.a. those too chicken to jump) and take the plunge, preferably in costume because it makes it that much better to watch. After the Splash you can retreat to the sauna and heated tents to change and enjoy the rest of the day's festivities up at BayView Lodge.
