What's Going On This Week?
The Holiday Prelude is in full swing and Christmas and New Years are right around the corner. To keep the holiday spirit up, check out the Hot Club of San Francisco free holiday kick-off concert at the new Black Box Theater. There is a flurry of activity this Saturday, December 17 in the Mountain Village. Santa is in town so don’t forget to stop and get your photo taken with him at the Telluride Conference Center. Also, there will be some holiday films for the kids and a Parent’s Lounge with a cash bar will be open for mom and dad. After visiting with Santa, hop on the Gondola and take a ride to the North Pole (but dress warm because we hear it’s cold there.) After your trip to the North Pole, head to Heritage Plaza for the Tree Lighting Ceremony which is followed by North Pole on Ice and an Ice Skating Party in the Mountain Village Ice Rink. Check out more on each event below.
