The Polar Plunge in Chetola Lake is one of the highlights of WinterFest. It’s FREE to watch as a spectator, and $40 to TAKE THE PLUNGE into the lake! Proceeds benefit local charities and plungers can select one of our designated charities to benefit! Plungers should arrive between 8-9am to sign a waiver and hear the safety rules. Plunging will begin at 10 am. All Plungers should plan to wear shoes the entire time to protect their feet.
All plungers who register by January 7, 2022 will receive a commemorative Polar Plunge long-sleeved t-shirt in their chosen size. Plungers registering online between January 5-25 are not guaranteed a t-shirt in their requested size. Pre-registrants will also be entered into a drawing for a complimentary massage at the Spa at Chetola Resort on the day of the plunge!
All plungers must check-in at the registration table located in the Chetola Lodge 2nd Floor Foyer upon arrival to sign a waiver and receive a wristband to plunge. Registration will begin at 8am.
