Lederhosen. Polish buffet. Beer. Keg toss. Crafts. Polka music. If any, or all, of those made you think Oktoberfest at Mount Snow, you're absolutely right. If not, then the answer to the next question should be a no-brainer. Where are you going to be on Oktober 6-7, 2012? Oktoberfest at Mount Snow. Very good.
Come hungry, and thirsty, because after 14 years of hosting Oktoberfest, Mount Snow knows how to throw one heck of a "Feier"... that's German for celebration. For their 15th annual fall festival the base area will be packed with family-friendly Aktivitäten... you guessed it, activities. (Look at you speaking German all of a sudden.) That's right, just because there will dozens of craft beer vendors sampling their seasonal nectars, doesn't mean the kiddies can't join in the fun.
Children's activities include a variety of arts and crafts, pumpkin painting, face painting, a hay pile, and the new favorite "schnitzel toss." Adult activities will, of course, include sipping on locally and regionally brewed Oktoberfest ales, the keg-toss challenge, horseshoe tournament and stein holding competition. A favorite festival event that be returning is The Apple Sling Shot along with the new event known as the one man saw. Everyone can enjoy delectable German-inspired foods like brats, schnitzels, wursts and plenty of sauerkraut, and dance to live polka music that will fill the village air.
Want to get a different perspective on the Oktoberfest festival? Take a scenic lift ride to the summit to enjoy a birds-eye-view of the breathtaking fall foliage the Mount Snow Valley has to offer. Back at the base, over 40 artisans and craftsmen from across New England will have fine hand-crafted furniture, art and more to browse and purchase if you desire.
Once you've had your fill of Oktoberfest (ale, food, music or atmosphere), retire to one of our vacation rentals, hang up your "dirndl" and slip off to dream land.
