The holidays make December all the more enticing in Vermont’s snowy mountains with festivals, events and good natured cheer emanating from the resorts. Here is a sampling of some of the resorts’ special holiday events and deals.

Families visiting Smugglers’ Notch Resort over the winter holiday periods will enjoy a full complement of package inclusions and special activities like bonfires and barbecues during Christmas Week and New Year’s.

Bolton Valley Resort created a line-up of fun holiday events for Christmas Week 2010 that are family-oriented and affordable and with all-inclusive packages that offer true ski-to-your-door lodging. Families will enjoy a holiday week filled with skiing and riding, fireworks and more.

There is no better time to come home to Stratton Mountain Resort than the holidays. The resort is keeping with tradition and has planned a season full of extraordinary events from the popular Ross Powers Boardercross Camp to the much anticipated Winter Yoga Cleanse.

Heading into the holidays, Killington Resort is decking the halls and celebrating with events, free learn to ski/snowboard days and attractive vacation package deals. Some highlights include the Rails 2 Riches Rail Jam and the celebration of World Snowboard Day.

The Mountain Top Inn & Resort, just 11 miles from Killington, is offering affordable winter packages for everyone. The resort features its popular Nordic Ski & Snowshoe Center, with an extensive trail system of 60km and decadent cuisine to enjoy after a day of outdoor adventures.

At Stowe Mountain Resort, buying lift-tickets seven days in advance saves money and adds value, even during the holidays. Stowe’s Vacation Rewards Program combines lift tickets with a menu of other on-mountain benefits, and many Stowe area lodges are combining it with a place to stay.

Okemo Mountain Resort celebrates the holidays with visits from Santa and a family New Year’s Eve celebration that includes a dance party and a fireworks display.
