Things to Do During the Christmas Holiday

The holidays are quickly approaching, school is out, and it’s time to take a break from everyday life and spend quality time with your family and friends. While we all love an excuse to be festive this time of year, sometimes all the celebrations can be a bit overwhelming. I’ve created a list of family-friendly events and activities at Canyons Resort. Have a wonderful holiday season, and remember to be safe out there!

Not ready to stop celebrating the New Year when the lifts stop running? Have no fear; there is plenty of New Years Eve celebrating happening on throughout the evening. A live DJ will be spinning tunes from 3 – 7 p.m. on the Resort Village Stage, while a few local kids will be killing it during a Jibbin’ for Juniors Jam Session in front of the stage. Murdock the Moose will be wandering around saying hi to the kiddos, too! Head over to Ski Beach between 5:30 and 7pm for Horse Drawn Sleigh Rides, and catch the massive fireworks show at around 7:30 p.m. over the Orange Bubble!

After the fireworks display, get ready to party the night away and head to the New Years Eve Celebration in the Grand Summit Hotel! The party runs until 1 a.m., and will feature a dinner buffet, special “Cirque du New Years” performers, dancing, a DJ, and party favors.
