Mountain Village Holiday Magic


If a fantastic weekend full of holiday fun is at the top of your Christmas wish list, head to the Mountain Village (which is connected to Telluride by the free gondola) this weekend. Jolly Old Saint Nick will make several appearances in Mountain Village for the final weekend of Holiday Prelude.

On Friday & Saturday, kids will have the opportunity to take a trip to the North Pole on the “Gondola Express” and then sit with Santa to tell him what is on their wish list for Christmas. The holiday fun continues at Santa's Workshop with cookie decorating and craft makingtrain rides and sledding. On Friday and Saturday evening (and a matinee performance at 2 pm) the Mountain Village Ice Rink comes alive with the North Pole on Ice, featuring international and national ice skating medalists.


The weekend is chock full of festive & FREE events but don’t forget to make time to ski as additional terrain is opening.  Lifts 7, 8, 9 open this weekend, with access to ski back to town. Bootdoctors Paragon is hosting International Women’s Ski Day on Saturday.  The kind folks at Bootdoctors are offering free demos and ski tours all day – ladies, be sure to test out some new skis!
