To hear folks tell it, the holidays sounds like a segment of “Survivor.” People use terms such as “endurance” and “survival” to describe the run-up to season, but not in Mountain Village, where the focus is where it should be, on family.

Mountain Village is now all tricked out in garlands, bells, lights and ornaments. A 20-foot Colorado Blue Spruce stands in Heritage Center, adorned with the requisite trimmings, just in time for the real launch of the Christmas “uptown”: Jingle Jam.

At the center of Jingle Jam is the tree lighting ceremony hosted by The Town of Mountain Village. That event takes place Friday, December 9, 5:30 p.m. Other Jingle Jam highlights, sponsored by the Telluride Mountain Village Owners Association, include Santa and his elves, merchant specials, kids’ crafts and more. Holiday music, food and drink, discounts at local stores, free ice-skating at the Mountain Village rink, babysitting and specials at The Peaks and an Ugly Sweater Party at Bar M, Hotel Madelaine, (drink specials and proceeds to benefit the Telluride Adaptive Sports Program) round out the Norman Rockwell picture.

For more Jingle Jam and Tree Lighting Ceremony information, contact either the Town’s Community Relations Manager, Nichole Zangara, (970) 369-6430 , or TMVOA’s Interim Executive Director, Steve Wilson, (970) 728-1904.
