As the holidays and snow fall upon us, get ready to kick off the season with a celebration of family, friends and philanthropy at The Ritz-Carlton, Bachelor Gulch.

Saturday the Ritz-Carlton, Bachelor Gulch ushers in the holiday season with hot chocolate, carolers and cheer. The 2011 Annual Tree Lighting Ceremony invites Vail Valley residents, along with resort guests and our community partner, Habitat for Humanity of Eagle and Lake Counties, to join the celebration. Festivities will include cookie-decorating, gourmet hot chocolate, delectable fireside s’mores, a special appearance by Santa, live caroling by the local Mountain Harmony group and a few exciting surprises.

The event also marks the kick-off of the resort’s ongoing holiday initiative, ‘Decorate for Dreams,’ offering guests and locals the opportunity through January to purchase $10 ornaments, custom-designed by the resort. All proceeds from the season’s ornament sales benefit the local chapter of Habitat for Humanity.

Tree Lighting Ceremony attendees who purchase ornaments will be entered to win a variety of amazing prizes, including a one-night stay at The Ritz-Carlton, Bachelor Gulch. All proceeds will be donated to Habitat for Humanity.
