Curious George Goes Skiing in Waterville Valley

January 12, 2013

The Margret and H.A. Rey Center and Waterville Valley Ski Resort have teamed up to present the Curious George Cottage Winter Family Festival on Saturday, Jan. 19, 2013. That’s right, Curious George and his friend, the Man With the Yellow Hat, are taking a skiing vacation this year and they picked Waterville Valley as their favorite place for family fun on the slopes!

We hope you’ll join the mischievous little monkey in Waterville Valley!

The day’s activities will include a banana pancake breakfast with the characters at T-Bars Restaurant at the ski area base.  Breakfast will be followed by a procession through the courtyard with George, The Man With the Yellow Hat and their new friend Bruce the Moose, Waterville Valley’s mascot.  Later, plan on meeting George at the mid-mountain Sunnyside TimberLodge for a photo opportunity, then take a few runs with him and all his friends down Valley Run.  There will be activities throughout the day at the mountain and at the Rey Center in Town Square.

Waterville Valley Ski Resort and Houghton Mifflin Harcourt are generously contributing to this event, which is a fundraiser for the non-profit Margret and H.A. Rey Center.  All proceeds from the event help fund their art, science and nature programs throughout the year.

Discounted lift tickets, breakfast tickets, and full packages are available for different age groups.
