There’s plenty of fun to go around if you’re heading to the Southwest to get your snow fix this week. Vail Resort cranks up the heat in the village with a week of live entertainment and festivities during their annual, free-to-the-public Snow Daze festival, Dec. 9-15. Or get in the spirit in Crested Butte, Colo. with 12 Days of Holiday Cheer, beginning Dec. 13, which offers fun and creative Christmas activities that every age can enjoy. At Arizona Snowbowl, pack the car (and the lifts) with two of your best skiing or riding buddies and pay only $33 per person on Friday, Dec. 13.
