There are no doubts that this is a trying time for many. How would you like to feed two families on Thanksgiving who would otherwise not be able to partake? All you have to do is stay and ski at the Wolf Creek ski area in the Ogden Valley of Utah on Thanksgiving. For every lodging reservation booked on Thanksgviging, two families will be fed.

At Wolf Creek Utah, you can stay in private condominiums or luxury private homes, and you don’t have to worry about getting your own food. Chef Craig Bonham and the crew at Harley and Buck’s Grill are preparing a giant, delicious Thanksgiving feast for you. Lodging packages include three-bedroom condos that sleep up to eight people for $550 for two nights, including a holiday dinner. Here’s the Thanksgiving menu: you have a choice of an eight- to ten-pound turkey with malted garlic herb injection, roasted buttermilk turkey, or an eight pound Coca-Cola glazed Virginia ham; 12 freshly-baked Parker Rolls; 12 buttermilk biscuits with honey butter; two quarts of Jim Beam roasted yams; two quarts of sour cream mashed potatoes; and two quarts of green bean casserole with buttermilk onion rings. Holy heart attack, Batman! But seriously, that sounds amazing. And think of the families you will be helping by doing this.

And then, the day after Thanksgiving, you can ski for free!

Here’s Gary Doud, executive director of the Ogden Rescue Mission: “Wolf Creek Utah’s willingness to help at this time of year will be a dramatic blessing to many families. The Mission typically donates 1,500 turkeys and 18 pallets of food to local needy families during the holidays. Requests for assistance are up dramatically across the full scope of services the mission provides, so we’re so grateful for Wolf Creek Utah’s support.”
