Imagine this: Snow-capped mountains, the fresh smell of evergreens, twinkling Christmas lights, and a certain sparkle and magic in the air. Add to this scene a happy and relaxed group of family and friends, enjoying time together without the stress of rushing around trying to finish last minute errands. While the immediate thought of spending Christmas away from home might seem crazy, once you arrive at one of our luxury vacation rentals in the gorgeous mountains, you’ll be wondering why you haven’t done this every year. Pack up a few special gifts, give your concierge a few thoughts on where you’d like to dine (leaving the cooking to someone else is a gift in and of itself), and get ready for a beautiful stress-free holiday full of fun, skiing, and lovely memories. If this sounds like the perfect holiday, act soon! We only have a few luxury vacation rentals available for 2014. Here is where you could be wishing loved ones “Merry Christmas!” or ringing in the New Year.
Snowmass: We can picture the whole gang gathered ’round the fireplace as someone plays Christmas carols on the baby grand piano (or maybe plugs in their ipod), sipping hot chocolate while admiring the view. Snowmass Holiday Events include: Christmas tree lighting, caroling, and special family events with crafts and a special appearance by Santa. For New Year’s Eve, drop the kids off for an overnight stay at Camp Smashbox while you and your date celebrate over a fabulous 5-course dinner or at one of the galas.
Vail: This sweet set-up in Vail Village is perfect for a family of 4 or 2 couples wishing to escape the hustle-and-bustle of a stressful holiday. Cozy up by the fireplace with a glass of wine, get creative at the sushi bar in the modern kitchen, or make your way to the winter wonderland that the village becomes with twinkle lights and friendly holiday spirit. The mountain lights up for New Year’s Eve with torchlight runs and fireworks after the parade of skiers make their way down.
Jackson Hole: Can’t you see the little ones tucked into these festive bunk beds as they listen closely for the jingle of bells? Jackson Hole is a magical place year-round, but the gorgeous setting simply sparkles when the allure of Christmas is in the air. After you spend the day on the slopes, this expansive home has plenty of room for everyone to unwind and relax. For New Year’s Eve, Jackson is illuminated by festive fireworks and several torchlight parades down the mountain.
