Staycations During the Ho-Ho-Holidays

 In Uncategorized

The tree is trimmed with magic. Stockings are hung with care. Presents are wrapped, Christmas cards are mailed, and baking aromatizes the kitchen. December brings the most wonderful time of the year…the Holidays!

Whether it’s to treat yourself before the big day arrives or gift friends and family with time away, a trip makes a great gift. Festive cheer is felt everywhere as resorts sparkle and, sometimes, even gift us with a sprinkle of snow.


Located in the heart of Radium Hot Springs in the Kootenays, Bighorn Meadows is a stunning winter wonderland, guaranteeing fresh snow and frozen lakes!

Bighorn has planned some holiday events with games and movie nights, sips and nibbles, crafts, and gingerbread house-building.
