Wassail Days in Frisco CO

Take a walk down Frisco’s Main Street this December to experience Wassail Days. All participating shops will be serving their own version of Wassail (and in some cases delicious sweet treats) from December 4th through 13th, during business hours. In addition to the free samples to warm you up, there will be daily winter activities to accompany Frisco’s welcoming of winter!

What is Wassail you ask? It is a hot spiced drink served over the holidays. It this case, it will be variations of hot cider. Wassail is also known as the tradition of going from house to house singing carols. Partake in this traditional holiday event by going to business to business trying out their different recipes (singing is optional)! Before you start, pick up a “12 Sips of Wassail” card from the Frisco Visitors center for an opportunity to receive a commemorative Frisco Wassail mug when you visit every stop.  There are some fun events scheduled including an ‘Ugly Sweater Challenge’ and the ‘Soup Cup Classic’ at the Frisco Adventure Center featuring unlimited soup tasting and tubing!

Frisco is just a few miles from Keystone and is a fun place to spend an afternoon.  Take your family snow-tubing at the Frisco Adventure Center and then warm up with your free cup of Wassail!  Be sure to take advantage of your Key to Keystone coupon for discounted tubing for your family.  For more information or to view a full schedule of events for Frisco’s Wassail Days, click here.

Frisco Adventure Park and Nordic Center for Tubing, Nordic Skiing and More!

The Frisco Adventure Park Tubing Hill is expected to open for Thanksgiving weekend, and some big things are already in the works!  The new adventure park is located just minutes away from Keystone Resort, and will be a great addition to the winter activities available in Summit County. 

The Summit Daily News has reported that the Town of Frisco has spoken with the Copper Mountain Ski and Ride School about offering beginner ski lessons at the Adventure Park.  The soonest that the partnership would begin is February 2012, once the details have been ironed out.  Once the finishing touches have been decided, SummitCove will keep you posted on the details!

The tubing park offers both a tubing hill and a ski and ride slope and terrain park.  The Frisco Nordic Center offers miles of Nordic skiing and snowshoe trails, as well as a new dinner and sleigh ride experience from Two Below Zero Sleigh Rides.
