BEAVER CREEK, Colorado – As the holidays and snow fall upon us, get ready to kick-off the season with a celebration of family, friends and fun at The Ritz-Carlton, Bachelor Gulch. Saturday, the hotel will welcome the holiday season with hot chocolate, carolers and cheer. The annual tree-lighting ceremony invites guests of the Vail Valley, along with hotel guests and community partner, Habitat for Humanity, to join the celebration. Festivities will include gingerbread-house decorating for children and the kick-off of our new community initiative, “Decorate for Dreams,” offering guests and locals the chance to adorn a holiday tree with purchased ornaments through Jan. 3. All proceeds from the season’s ornament sales will benefit the local chapter of Habitat for Humanity. Attendees will also enjoy complimentary hot chocolate, delectable gourmet s’mores and live caroling by the local Mountain Harmony group.

The night of the event only, attendees who purchase ornaments will be entered to win prizes, including stays at The Ritz-Carlton, Bachelor Gulch and The Ritz-Carlton, Denver. All proceeds will be donated to the Eagle/Lake Habitat for Humanity.
