This weekend, the following shows will be taking place:

Can You Ski all Day and still get that Thanksgiving Dinner at Home?

Mount Snow has made it easy for skiers to be able to ski on Thanksgiving Day and still be able to have a traditional Thanksgiving meal at home with the family. With the Thanksgiving Feasts To-Go program, you can preorder a full slow-roasted turkey dinner with traditional sides and then at the end of your day on the hill, you can pick up your hot meal to bring it back home. Great idea! Who wouldn’t rather be skiing instead of being in a kitchen all day?
