There is simply no denying it: Santa would approve of the holiday magic found around Summit County, Colorado! With twinkle lights everywhere, towns covered in snow, and Christmas carols echoing among the mountains, Summit County is the perfect place to spend the holidays.
Stop by Keystone to visit their unique Chocolate Village and meet Santa at 4 pm on December 23rd. Created of more than 7,000 pounds of chocolate, the village has a gondola, chocolate waterfall, train, and more!
What would Christmas in Colorado be without a ride on a horse-drawn sleigh? A ride through deep snow drifts among the Rocky Mountains is perfect for any age! 2 Below Zero in Frisco offers private and group rides, ending with hot cocoa or book their Dinner Sleigh Ride option and enjoy a three-course meal and live entertainment.
Spend Christmas Eve skiing the slopes with Santa Claus at Arapahoe Basin! Santa will make his appearance at 11 am in the Mountain Goat Plaza. Summit County Choral Society will be adding a little holiday magic to the lift line, too.
If you miss Santa at A-Basin, you can catch him doing some warm-up runs before the big night at Copper Mountain. Kick off some apres ski with a DJ playing holiday tunes followed by a Kids Glowstick Pageant, torchlight parade, and a firework send off for Santa! Free festive giveaways and sweet treats included.
For a quiet evening, make reservations at Hearthstone. Routinely voted Breckenridge’s #1 restaurant and housed in a late 1800’s ranch family home, Hearthstone overlooks Breckenridge Resort and features local and seasonal cuisine. Happy hour is a local favorite and dinner reservations are highly encouraged.
