Where to Find Snow in San Diego this Winter

by: Welk Resorts | November 9, 2017

Records might indicate it hasn’t snowed in San Diego since 1967, but we here at Welk Resorts beg to differ. It snows in America’s Finest City every year! That’s right: Back by popular demand is our Winter Wonderland celebration! Join us for a two-day holiday celebration packed with all the holiday festivities you can imagine and even more snow than last year—REAL snow!

Guests of all ages are welcome December 16 and 17 from 10 a.m.–5 p.m. as we frolic in the powdery white and ring in the holiday season. We’ll have rockin’ live music, special holiday vendors and, of course, plenty of piping hot chocolate and toasty hot toddies available to keep you warm throughout the day. Born in Brooklyn and Subfusion SD food trucks will also be on hand. Best of all, the resort will be totally decked out with Christmas lights, ornaments, and boughs of holly, making for the perfect Southern Californian winter celebration.

Whichever activities you choose, at Winter Wonderland you’ll be singing along to holiday classics thanks to special guests Shane Henry & Maggie McClure. Shane and Maggie are holiday music pros, having performed at the official NBA holiday halftime show for the New York Knicks, Oklahoma City Thunder, and Charlotte Hornets. Their original holiday songs can be heard annually on Hallmark Channel movies and in retail stores across the country! In addition to Shane and Maggie, we’re pleased to welcome The Bobby Sanchez Combo, a fifties-style rock n’ roll favorite in Southern California.

The weekend of December 16 will be jam-packed with winter fun for you and your family to enjoy. Be sure to bring some warm(er) clothes and all the holiday spirit you can manage! Additional food will be available for purchase, including snow cones, cotton candy, kettle corn, and gourmet cookies.
