The North Pole at Seven Peaks - and GIVEAWAY!!!

Seven Peaks and Just Another Utah County Mom are giving away 4 pass of all passes, 4 season tube rentals and 1 season parking pass!  Enter by commenting on my posts on Instagram or Facebook.  It couldn't be easier!  Giveaway ends December 13 at midnight Utah time.
----------------------------------------------------------------------------
 I spent last night wondering WHY I haven't taken my family to see the North Pole at Seven Peaks before now.  We have had pass of all passes for years but I guess I was afraid it would be so busy it wouldn't be worth it.  I was wrong.
We showed up on a Monday night right when it opened and there was nobody there.  We were able to do most things without any lines at all and even by the time we were leaving the lines were only a minute or two long.  I talked to the security guard as I left and he said if you go on a weekday the crowd's aren't bad at all.  He said if you come on a Friday/Saturday it's a lot more crowded and you should plan on having to stand in line for rides.
 There was a lot more to do than I was expecting and everything was a lot of fun.  We rode the Seven Peaks Express train around a village of lights.
We peddled around the story of the Nutcracker.  As we peddled through, the murals on the walls and story over the speakers depicted the story.  It was really cool.
Our favorite part was riding the bumper boats around the winter wonderland that surrounded the lazy river.
They turned the waterslides into a sledding hill!  As I stood at the bottom feeding the baby waiting for the rest of my family to come down I heard so many people saying "this is so much fun!" and "I love this place! I want to come every day!"  It really was a lot of fun to sled down on the icy slide!
We got to see Santa and since there was no one else in there with us he spent a long time with each of our kids asking them about their lives and what they wanted for Christmas.  The elf was kind enough to take a picture for us for free.  Everyone was so nice there and I was very impressed with the kindness of the staff.
This place is great for people of all ages.  Even the baby could go on everything with us!
Mrs Clause's kitchen served hot chocolate (for $2) and a variety of foods (burgers, fries, chicken tenders, treats, etc) for about $3-$5 each, very reasonably priced.
There were fire pits with chairs surrounding it that you could sit and talk at or drink hot chocolate by.
 
I'm not just saying this - the whole experience was magical.  I am kicking myself for not going last year!  We will definitely be going again and again and make this a new holiday tradition.
 
If you have a pass of all passes, make sure you go on a weekday before December 15 to get in free!  After that you can still attend for just $5.

Three (3) rides down Candy Cane Slopes
One (1) ride on the Seven Peaks Express
One (1) ride on the Lazy River Christmas Cruise
