Snow in the summer? Why not! Throughout the north, our resorts are getting into the Christmas spirit as we prep for one of our favorite themes, Christmas in July. Wagon rides, visits from Santa, and site decorating contests are just a taste of what you can expect from these summer celebrations. Here are some highlights of the activities happening at our resorts!
Used to long winters, Midwesterners know a thing or two about Christmas.
