TELL US MORE ABOUT YOUR HISTORY WITH THE PARK
“Bill and I used to come here when we were younger, back when Santa’s Village was closed, and make bike paths through the trees,” says Michelle, “We were mountain locals and this was one of the best places in the area to spend an afternoon in the trees. In 2014, long after we were married and had gained significant experience in the real estate world, we saw the old Santa’s Village property come up on the market and it was like the universe was giving us a chance to share this magical place with the world. Now everyone gets to experience the park we’ve spent years perfecting.”
WHAT NEW LEGACY DO YOU WANT FOR THE PARK?
“It used to be, when people came to the San Bernardino Mountains for sports, they were mostly just into skiing. But today, they’re also into mountain biking” says Bill, “We’re proud to be a part of that mindset shift. These mountains need to be experienced and mountain biking is such a great way to do it year-round. It’s good for the local community as well, to have something year-round again. Plus, we’ve brought the famous Santa’s Village theme park back to life for new generations, and that’s really special. I think the legacy this park leaves for future families is a very positive one, and Michelle and I are proud to be a part of it.”
