High West:  Speaking of après!  If you’ve skied or snowboarded to the bottom of Town Lift, you can see High West Whiskey Distillery right next door.  Try whiskey flights from the saloon or take your cocktails out to the front deck to enjoy the sunshine.

Day 5    

Snowmobile Tour:  Give yourselves a little speed with a snowmobile tour around Red Pine Canyon.  The guides will take you for an adventure through groomed trails and forested mountain terrain.  Boots and helmets are provided.
