The Great Polar Bear Challenge is an annual event benefiting the Make-A-Wish® Idaho held at Lucky Peak Reservoir and Spring Shores Marina. For the past sixteen years, hundreds of people come out to brave the chilling weather year after year to raise funds for children in Idaho with critical illnesses.

Day of registration starts at 10am with the plunge happening at 11am. Each year we expect 450+ people to jump, water ski or wakeboard in the water with about a thousand spectators joining in the fun. There are also costume contests and prizes for top fundraisers. Kick-off the New Year by helping raise funds to grant the most heartfelt wish of every eligible Idaho child.

For more information, contact: Helene Peterson ( or 208-297-6727.

For easy check-in, please bring the Registration & Waiver Form with you to the event.
