We’ve all been there. Hours and hours of cooking, hours and hours of cleanup. It feels like the anticipated Thanksgiving meal itself lasts for mere moments in the midst of the chaos. It doesn’t have to be that way though. Because the Antlers is offering a memory-making alternative Vail Thanksgiving. The family-friendly, convenient and comfortable, amenities-packed lodging takes the hassle away from the holiday with its Early Bird Gets the Bird package. Offered Nov. 28-30, 2019. The deal comes complete with a chef-prepared turkey dinner and a complimentary “Thanksgiving Survival Kit.”
Vail Chef Barry Robinson is standing by to whip up a gourmet Thanksgiving feast for a family of four. The same meal he has cooked for his own family for years. This includes roast turkey, slow-cooked giblet gravy. For sides: salad of mixed greens with homemade herb dressing, garlic mashed potatoes, green beans with toasted almonds, caramelized butternut squash, savory stuffing and tart cranberry sauce. All topped off by classic pumpkin pie.
Thanksgiving Survival Kit Included
The Early Bird Gets the Bird Package also includes a Thanksgiving Survival Kit. The kit has bottle of wine or six-pack of locally made Bonfire Brewing beer. It also includes travel-size Tums, disposable hand and foot warmers for slopeside comfort and pumpkin pie-scented ChapStick. Start the morning with freshly brewed Joe from the bag of Vail Mountain Coffee Patriotic Blend. These coffee beans are stocked in every Antlers condo. A portion of the proceeds of every purchase Antlers makes goes to the Vail Veterans Program.
Better Early Season Skiing, Plus Ice Skating and More
Early birds who reserve their package by Nov. 20, 2018, can spend their hard-earned days off skiing or snowboarding Vail’s famous slopes. Or doing other fun-filled activities such as ice skating in nearby Lionshead. Tackling early holiday shopping in Vail Village. Swimming in Antlers’ mountainside pool, soaking in the onsite hot tub. Or just kicking back in the luxurious comfort of a Platinum-rated condominium.
Plus Vail’s extensive snowmaking upgrades now ensure a pre-Thanksgiving opening day each year. Nearly 200 acres of new and enhanced snowmaking terrain provide guests with earlier access to higher elevation terrain. Plus top-to-bottom skiing and snowboarding. Access from two base areas, and improved early season ski school terrain.
