Cascade Christmas Celebrates 15 years of Holiday Memories in Vail

As Vail’s only ski-in/ski-out four diamond hotel, Cascade Christmas at Vail Cascade gives guests an equally one-of-a-kind experience indoors.

Holiday traditions are nostalgic rituals that transcend generations forever connecting the past with the present. For 14 years, Vail Cascade Resort’sCascade Christmas’ has been a time honored tradition, bringing families, friends and loved ones together in Vail. This year, as Cascade Christmas celebrates 15 years of making holiday memories and Vail celebrates its 50th anniversary, this cherished tradition flourishes into an even more memorable affair both on and off property. For 11 days, guests of all ages can enjoy a myriad of activities, games, performances, and a special visit from Santa and his elves on Christmas Eve.

Starting on Friday, Dec. 21, Vail Cascade Resort, a Colorado resort offering packages and special offers in Vail, will kick off our 15th Annual Cascade Christmas, an 11-day, onsite holiday guest program. Each day, we will host complimentary guest activities, games or holiday performances such as bingo, ornament decorating, caroling, gingerbread house making, magic shows, storytelling and s’mores by the fire pit – to highlight a few. Through the our KidVenture holiday program, parents can enjoy some adult time by dropping off their kids, ages 5-12, at Vail's largest fitness center Aria Spa & Club to participate in moderately priced holiday craft sessions or pizza and movie nights. Since holidays don’t have an age limit, this year’s Cascade Christmas in Vail will also feature experiences for adults including complimentary craft beer tastings and wine pairings from Atwater on Gore Creek, a craft beer restaurant in Vail, and $1 per minute chair massages from Aria Spa. On Monday, Dec. 24, Santa Claus and his elves arrive at the Vail Cascade Resort giving pint-sized guests the opportunity to make a white winter wish atop St. Nick’s lap. Cascade Christmas ends on Tues., Jan. 1, 2013. For a complete list of Cascade Christmas events, times and locations, please visit
