Big Bear, Ca, December 26, 2011, 9:00am – 15 Year old Jordan Romero made the record books again, along with his father Paul Romero and stepmother, Karen Lundgren. Team Jordan successfully summited Mount Vinson Massif in Antarctica on Christmas Eve at 9:00am our time. Upon summiting Vinson Massif, the team became the first family to complete the seven summits, the seven highest peaks on each of the seven continents, and Jordan became the youngest person to complete the 7 summits. The Big Bear Locals will be flying from Antarctica back to Chile today, and will get a chance to warm up before flying back to Big Bear. A welcome home celebration has been planned for Sunday, January 1st at 5:00pm in the parking lot of the Robinhood Resort. Everyone is invited and welcome to join in the festivities that will honor Big Bear’s home town heroes! KBHR and the community of Big Bear Lake congratulate Team Jordan on completeing the 7 Summits, and for motivating people everywhere to find their Everest!
