February vacation week is shaping up to be epic this year.
We’ve picked up more than 2 feet of snow in just the last two weeks, and forecasts are calling for even more through the end of February. And while all this snow is probably a gargantuan nuisance where you live, it’s more than welcome here in the mountains.
So step away from the shovel, grab your skis or snowboard, and take advantage of all that February Vacation has to offer, both on and off the snow:
Feb. 17 – Buddy the Clown – Watch Buddy the Clown provide entertainment around the Octagon Lodge from 1:00pm-4:00pm.
