This FREE event begins at 4pm with Christmas carols around the bonfire next to the Zephyr lift. Then, watch your children’s eyes light up with excitement the torchlight processions starts snaking it’s way down the Lower Hughes ski slope, closely followed by a torch bearing Santa & his merry helpers! A huge fireworks display lights up the dark night’s sky as snowcats (adorned with Christmas colors) make their way down the hill in a perfect Christmas tree formation…wow! Evening worship services are available after the parade at Balcony House & West Portal.
