Ready For Some ‘Bro’ Time?

by Tom Horrocks | December 20, 2017

The holidays will soon come and go. You love your family, but after all is said and done, you’ll need some “Bro” time. Some carving time! Some POW time! Some après time!
How about grabbing a few friends and taking that four-day New Year’s week and making it a three-day week? After all, Friday, Jan. 5 sounds like a great day for some PTO, maybe a sick day, but certainly a day to put off those TPS reports, Mmmmmkay? Thaaaaaanks.
So with ample time for you and your bros and broettes to tell the boss that Friday, Jan. 5 is “Your Personal Day,” we’ve lined up some deals that leave money in your pocket, a grin on your face, and a “damn, I gotta do that more,” on your mind!

Tons of snow, and more than 2,500 acres of open terrain! Yeah, you’re going to need more than one sick day here! Top off the day with Bites & Brews at the Mammoth Brewing Company.
