Emerald Lake Lodge – Field, British Columbia
Christmas at Emerald Lake Lodge
‘Twas the night before Christmas and all through the lodge…all the guests were stirring because there was so much fun to be had!
On the night before Christmas, guests are welcome to join the staff at Emerald Lake Lodge to do some carolling by the fire pit outdoors (weather permitting). There is a colouring contest for the children, as well as a rousing reading of ‘How the Grinch Stole Christmas.’ Homemade eggnog and gluhwein are served and enjoyed with the management team, and if the weather permits and the ice is suitable, there is ice skating on the Emerald Lake. (Guests responsible to bring their own ice skates)
Then, on Christmas morning, there is the ultimate excitement –a visit from Santa all the way from the North Pole! All the children receive a gift and everyone has a chance to get their picture taken with the jolly old man himself. After a delicious and decadent breakfast, guests are welcome to participate in a rousing game of broom ball or to do some ice skating on the lake, weather permitting.
All guests staying over for Christmas also get a gift delivered to their room courtesy of Emerald Lake Lodge. For a more detailed Christmas Season schedule, please click here .
