Holiday break is fast approaching, and we can’t wait to pack a bag and head to the mountains for warm-hearted adventures with friends and family. We caught up with our snow team riders to see which mountains are their favorites to visit around the holiday time. What’s yours?
Corinne Pasela says “So my favorite holiday resort is Peek’n Peak, nestled up in Findley Lake, NY. My personal connection to the place comes from learning to ski there early on in life. It was a mellow day trip from Ohio, perfect for our family trips. The main lodge, and all it’s retro greatness, is perfect for a place to warm up during the day or chill for the night. They boast a few terrain parks, some bumps and jumps, but the real fun happens through the trees across their 27 slopes (mellow enough to entertain all skill levels). Plus, the snow is always good! In a nutshell, Peek’n Peak is the best place to ride around my neck of the woods for the holidays because it’s family friendly, easy on the wallet, has good snow, short lift lines, and that good ol’ ma and pa feel. Hip hip for winter!”
Robin Van Gyn is “biased to B.C., but Whistler is like no where else during the Holidays. The village is lit up and the snow droops from all the trees, its a winter wonderland.”
Ty Walker says “My favorite place to ride in the holiday season is Breckenridge in Colorado because the town is so pretty and it looks like something out of a Christmas book, But for the actual holiday I always go home to Stowe, Vermont to spend time with my family.” The newest member of our Amateur team, Jordie Karlinski, also loves Colorado, but she prefers Snowmass resort in Aspen, “during the holidays my whole family is in town and its a great mountain to either ride with my dad and brother or take a hike with with my mom and sister. Friends I grew up with are in town as well, so it’s nice to be able to ride with them.”
Erin Comstock and Torah Bright head to Park City Mountain Resort in Utah because as Torah says, “They have it all… parks, pipes and great terrain! My favorite memories are during the holiday with a group of friends just lapping the mountain on a blue bird day. I Ride Park City!”
