’tis the season

3 Dec

Welp, we’re back and we survived 3000 miles in the car, a picturesque introduction to nine states across the good ‘ole USofA, and a week with each other’s families, and frankly I think I still kinda dig him. But we’ll get to that later.

First things first, the holidays have arrived and Summit County is chock full of exciting events and activities for the entire family. From skiing, to tubing, to sleigh rides, to tree lightings and carolers, a trip out to the mountains is the perfect way to get in touch with your inner-elf.

1) Skiing (duh): All the hills (Beaver Creek, Vail, Breck, Keystone, A-Basin, Copper Mountain, Loveland…am I miss any?) in the area are officially open and ready for skiers and riders of all skill levels to dive in and fly down. Keystone even offers a “kids ski free” package for families staying two or more nights with children 12-and under. Can’t beat that!

2) Tubing: think of it as sledding on steroids. Check out the Frisco Adventure Park or Keystone Adventure Point. Note, Keystone requires reservations–to book dial 800-354-4386 or stop by the Keystone Lodge and Spa concierge desk. 

3) Lighting of Breckenridge/Run of Santas, December 7 

4) Frisco Wassail Days, December 7-15: carolers, shopping, holiday charm galore!

5) Dew Tour: Can you dew it? These guys sure can. Watch pro snowboarders and skiers fly through the air as they launch themselves off some of Breck’s biggest jumps and rails. 

6) Brunch with Santa, Keystone, CO, Warren Station, December 15

7) 12 days of Christmas at Copper Mountain, December 20-31: 12 days of holiday surprises and events

8) USSA Grand Prix, Copper Mountain, December 16-22: top freeskiers and snowboards compete to qualify for the 2014 winter olympics

By the way, Summit County is expecting 8-16″ of snow tonight…the weather may be frightful, but all the snow sure makes the holidays delightful!
