Itís the Presidentís Day holiday, and
In all my years, I have never seen so many deals and special events Ė a sign of the times perhaps. Clearly, itís a sign that you should take your kids to the slopes.
Here are some fun family festivities to check out:
On Feb. 16, Okemo is celebrating PHAT Tuesday. Mardi Gras beads are strewn around the mountain. Redeem the beads in the lodge for prizes as part of their PHAT campaign (Protect your Head at All Times) promoting helmet safety.
Eddy the Yeti,
There are countless kid-friendly events on snow this week. Get out and enjoy with yoursí.
