Here is a fun piece I wrote for Liftopia.com on holiday events. ~ Enjoy!
‘Tis the season for skiing powder! Oh, and the holidays are upon us as well. I’d rather bury my head in the snow than deal with shopping and, luckily, there are some festive ski resort events taking place across the U.S. and the Canadian Rockies.
Below is a small selection of events, but there are plenty more. To find events in your favorite ski area, search the web for “ski resort Christmas events” or “…New Years Events” (using the term “holiday” will deliver a cluttered mess).
Grab your Santa suit, guzzle some eggnog, and hang a sprig of mistletoe on your helmet—it’s time to celebrate the holidays with some pow!
