05 Jan, 2018
The long weekend observing Martin Luther King, Jr.’s birthday is prime time for families to make their first quick getaway of the year from the humdrum of school and work. Take the time to recharge your positive energy and experience family fun with a winter adventure and delicious food.
Take a stab at the slopes. The Mountain Top is the perfect hill for beginners looking to learn how to ski or snowboard. Our experienced instructors are Burton certified and offer a variety of safe, proven programs to teach you how to be confident on a snowboard or skis. In addition to our Burton Learn to Ride snowboarding lessons, we also have a new Burton Riglet Park, where we teach kids as young as three-years-old to snowboard. The teaching methodologies we use help new riders to learn to make and connect their turns faster – making for a great first time experience on the hill! Watch this video and see how awesome it is learning to snowboard.
Warm up in Leinie’s Lodge at The Mountain Top with a cup of hot chocolate by the fire or fuel your body with a big plate of short rib poutine or bread bowl of chili. We have plenty of indoor picnic tables where you can relax before your next run down the hill.
If you think that sounds good, wait until dinner at Geneva ChopHouse, where we have the finest hand-cut steaks, freshest seafood and sweetest desserts. Feeling like something a little more romantic? Take a seat at our Italian restaurant, Ristorante Brissago. You’ll find familiar Italian favorites like Veal Osso Buco, Lobster Tagliatelle and Bucatini Carbonara. Brissago’s wood burning oven adds a special flavor to our Whole Roasted Branzino. While you’re eating dinner, your kids can have a Grand experience at Science Night or Kids Adventures, where our team will entertain your children with fun activities while you get some “adult time.”
After a day riding the lift, relax with a hot stone massage at WELL Spa + Salon. The heat of basalt stones combined with the magical healing powers of argan oil cleanses toxins from your body, offering it the ultimate restoring warm up.
Grand Geneva has the room accommodations with the best views in the area. If you stay in one of our lakeside rooms, you’ll wake up to the most beautiful sunrise over the Wisconsin countryside, no matter what season you visit. Upgrade your stay to one of our spacious Villas, perfect for families and friends.
And if you’re family is looking for a “suite” experience, Timber Ridge Lodge is the best choice because your room comes with passes to our indoor waterpark. Going from sliding down the snow-covered slopes to the heated waterslide in the same day is pretty awesome – and exhausting! Everyone is sure to sleep well at night.
When it comes to winter, there’s no better choice than a getaway to Grand Geneva in Lake Geneva, Wisconsin for a relaxing long weekend.
