Saturday, Jan 20th: Bavarian Ski Festival – (Busy Day Photo)

Dust off your Lederhosen and join us for a taste of the Alps! Enjoy skiing on the HQ trail system, then test your strength at Masskrugstemmen, with stein-holding contests for men and women starting at 2:00pm. Make a team of three, and ski in unison atop our giant pair of “Team Skis” in the Team Ski Time Trials, beginning at 3:00pm. Of course, we encourage all guests to dress in their best German attire for a costume contest at 4:00pm. Special guest German Dave will be serving delicious Bavarian fare, including soft pretzels, sausages, sauerkraut, and of course, German beer. Don’t miss this celebration of heritage and winter fun!
