A twinkling start can be found at the resort, which sparkles with 1 million white lights. The festive lighting ceremony takes place the Saturday after Thanksgiving with performances, Mr. and Mrs. Claus and the unveiling of the annual massive gingerbread display, standing at 10 feet tall and more than 12 feet wide.
After the big kick-off party, the hotel will celebrate all season long with gingerbread decorating classes for kids, holiday dining menus and more.

Families can enjoy games and crafts, grand dinners in the lodge, hiking, snowman building, winter walks, wine tastings and much more.
