Magical Memories is back and better than ever! 

Resort at Squaw Creek's 13th annual Magical Memories celebration kicks off with traditional Thanksgiving Dinners and a Turkey Hunt, and runs through Hanukkah and Christmas. The festival culminates in a new All That Glitters Kaleidoscope Party for New Year's Eve.

Resort at Squaw Creek is also hosting Kid's Night Out and Teen's Lounge New Year’s Eve bashes. Visit our event calendar to check out the full list of events or book New Year's Eve party tickets online.

One of the most fantastic aspects of Magical Memories is the Gingerbread Village that is displayed in Resort at Squaw Creek’s lobby throughout the month. The houses are kids-playhouse sized and take weeks to create. Resort at Squaw Creek Pasty Chef, Adrian Frutos explained that the construction of the Gingerbread Village takes 500 lbs of sugar, 600 lbs of candy, 15 gallon of molasses, and over 1000 lbs of other ingredients! 

Each year, Resort at Squaw Creek’s culinary team puts in over 600 hours of “shop time” to bake, cut, and prepare gingerbread bricks to build and decorate the resort’s gingerbread village, expertly gluing each brick onto the house’s frame. The candy follows, glued to the gingerbread bricks with homemade icing. Sticking to the design plan, the team glues each piece of candy to the village using icing.
