Giving the gift of an experience this Christmas can enrich families and create bonds that are never forgotten! Here are a few ideas that are sure to please, and make enduring memories.
The gift of skiing at White Pass Ski Area can be the beginning of a lifetime of fun with this popular outdoor sport. The options for gifting are numerous, from First Time All-Inclusive Packages, Kid’s Clinics, Adults Only Workshops, to Lift Tickets, Season Passes and more.
Give the gift of a family ski weekend with the EZ Ski/Ride 3-Day all-inclusive package. This will get you on the slopes and riding lifts by the third day! The White Pass Village Inn Condominiums are located across the street from the day lodge. Rent a studio for 2 or a one bedroom with sleeping loft that sleeps 6-8. Relax in the outdoor pool that’s kept at spa temperature after a day on the slopes!
For the women in the family, a treatment at Ummelina’s Day Spa is sure to please. From the package treatments to the unique group experience of the Tea Spa, there is something for every budget. A relaxing and re-energizing gift for that special someone is the perfect gift after the hectic holidays.
Or maybe the perfect gift is a getaway in a rustic cabin at Elk Ridge Campgrounds, where they offer four-season accommodations along the Naches River. Bring your hiking boots, mountain bike, fishing pole, 4 x 4, snowshoes, cross country skis or snowmobiles, and give the gift of glamping! You can also get gift certificates for lodging/camping or services in The Spa at Elk Ridge!
How about a ride at Red Mountain Trails? Whether it’s a horseback trail ride through the vineyards with wine tasting and lunch, or a 30-minute ride where you can quickly ascend to breathtaking views. There are even 20-minute vineyard tours by wagon, and Wine Tasting Wagon Tours that include lunch. And their wagon ride dinners in the summer make an excellent and unexpected gift. These take place on Friday and Saturday nights during the summer, where you enjoy a gourmet, fresh-cooked meal as the sun sets over the valley!
Other Yakima Valley experiences could be handwritten vouchers for event tickets, such as tickets to the Case of the Blues & All That Jazz, the Central Washington State Fair, personalized wine tasting tours, the Fresh Hop Ale Festival or more! This year, surprise the family with a gift of a Yakima Valley experience they will remember for a lifetime!
