Fun winter mountain festivals

Winter is already here and for some of us this is good news, while the majority of people long for the summer. We’re writing this article for the first category to show them all the cool festivals they can attend this winter in the mountains.

All this traveling is not cheap, so you might want to find a way to supplement your income if needed. Many people choose online casino games mainly because of all the promotions they offer to newcomers. One might ask why do casino offer bonuses? The answer is simple: because it brings more clients. Nonetheless, the player has benefits as well. It’s a two-way street that both parties choose to go down on. Anyway, let’s get started!

Blue Mountain Winter Fest

This festival will take place at the Blue Mountain Resort in Summit Lodge, Palmerton, PA on January 27-28, 2018. Believe it or not, it’s all free. You will meet members of the US luge team, you will admire beautiful ice sculptures that artists create on the spot and you will see real sled dogs. There will be of course hot chocolate and mulled wine for everyone who gets too cold outside. Winter activities are allowed and actually free, except for skiing, snowtubing and snowboarding, for which you have to pay a fee.

Rise Festival

Just as you’re reading this article, the Rise Festival takes place. Still, don’t worry, there’s a 2018 edition as well and booking is open.
