As if this wasn’t enough, we will be serving Bob's famous Bean Bomb all weekend until it’s gone. Beware: Bean Bomb contains bacon, garlic and cheese, which means it’s even more addicting than that cornbread stuffing with the walnuts in it.

Throughout the weekend, help yourself to our beautifully maintained ski trails; if we don't have snow, they will be open for hiking, biking and dog walking.

Warren Millers; Line of Descent:
This year, don’t miss Warren Miller’s Line of Descent, presented by Volkswagen. Travel the globe, by land, air, and sea, exploring the ties that bind us. Visit skiing icons who have made the mountains their home and raised the next generation of winter adventurers. Go from New Zealand, home to some of the Southern Hemisphere’s deepest lines, to the French Alps, where native son Jean Claude Killy’s legacy fills Val-D’Isere hearts with pride. In Norway, a Canadian ski patroller enjoys the company of his Norwegian brethren, and in British Columbia, the Provo brothers discover the powsurfing stashes of Mustang Powder Lodge. Cruise through the Northern Rockies with Kalen Thorien by motorcycle and rip the rugged terrain of Jackson Hole with legends like Tommy Moe and Jess McMillan. For 68 years, ski families have cheered on the official kickoff to winter with the ski film company that started it all and this year is no different. As the family grows, the traditions grow richer in Volkswagen presents Warren Miller’s Line of Descent. Deeper and fresher than ever.
