It’s not too early to enjoy a Christmas package -- especially one that comes before the holidays. Skiers and snowboarders get an early jump on Christmas this year at with a family package (not the kind you wrap) at Crested Butte Mountain Resort in Colorado that kicks in before Dec. 25.

The Grandest Christmas Package is good for those who want to enjoy the slopes as well as tubing and other activities at the on-site Adventure Park. It comes with four nights at the resort’s Grand Lodge, lift tickets for three days and access to the Adventure Park. And there’s the indoor heated pool and steam room to enjoy at the lodge too.

Date: The offer is good for Dec. 14-23, based on availability. Reservations must be made by Dec. 16.

Price: $999 for two adults and two children sharing a room. It includes lodging, lift tickets (two for adults, two for children 17 or younger) and Adventure Park tickets. Transportation to and from the ski resort is extra.
