Whether you want to be outside or inside, Medicine Hat has something for everyone this holiday season. 

Hidden Valley Ski Resort

One of Medicine Hat’s best kept secrets, Hidden Valley Ski Resort guarantees no lift lines - because your vacation should be spent skiing not waiting. The Resort is located in the Cypress Hills Provincial Park and overlooks Medicine Hat and some pretty stunning views. Hidden Valley offers downhill skiing plus a terrain park with rains and snow obstacles. Not an avid skier? Snow School starts Dec. 1 and there are beginner hills available! The Resort is open Wednesday to Sunday with a variety of tickets and passes available online.

Board games at Heartwood Cafe

Looking for a quiet night in? Santa's Workshop will be the feature game on Dec. 20 at the Heartwood Cafe, located directly across from the historic Medicine Hat Train Station. Starting at 6pm until close, bring the family along for a cozy night filled with laughs, tasty treats, good drinks and fun times. Game nights happen every Thursday so check online to see if there will be a special theme for when you’re planning your visit! 

Classic Rock and Country Countdown to 2019

If you’re in Medicine Hat, there’s no better way to ring in the New Year than with some live music, delicious food and good company. On Dec. 31, Gas City Shocker and country recording artist Reese Klaiber will take the stage and the audiences’ hearts starting at 7pm. There will also be the opportunity to enjoy a Prime Rib or Chicken Oscar Buffet in The Cellar prior to the show at either the 5pm seating or 7pm seating. Tickets are limited so don’t delay! https://www.eventbrite.ca/e/country-classic-rock-countdown-to-2019-tickets-50756066762 

Being away from home this holiday season doesn’t have to be hard. At Home Inn Express Medicine Hat, we’re your home away from home. We even have pet-friendly rooms so no one is left behind and free wi-fi throughout the hotel if you wanted to kick it online instead of outside. If you’re bringing the family or co-ordinating a group to go skiing, we also offer special packages to help you make the most of your trip! 

Come visit Medicine Hat to see what you could be missing! We look forward to making your December a little more fun and little more warmer, so plan your stay today
