O'er the Hills of Snow

Winter Park's annual Christmas Eve Torchlight Procession down Lower Hughes takes on extra significance this year as part of the resort's 70th anniversary celebration. Santa and his crew will be on hand to get one last run in before clocking in for the night, and the aprés ski scene includes fireworks, a snowcat light show on the mountain, and Christmas carols by the bonfire at the newly overhauled base area: "Later on, we'll conspire, as we dream by the fire, to face unafraid, the plans that we've made, walking in a winter wonderland."

Finally, set out some cookies for Santa and get to dreaming of a white Christmas; you just might wake up to the best present of all, under the trees. Keep an eye out for Frosty taking his thumpety thump thumps o'er the hills of snow in the Rail Yard terrain park and Parson Brown taking powder hits in Parsenn Bowl.
