A $10 pin-on button gets you access to all five days of this 103-year-old carnival, which includes a welcome balance of activities to satisfy your lazy and active moods alike. Stay warm with ski competitions, skijoring, and a three-legged race, or bundle up with a hot beverage and watch the competitors. On Saturday night, make sure to catch the mountain light show, during which skiers and ski jumpers hold flares on their runs, dotting the slopes with glowing lights. Wed-Sun, times vary.
