Artists' Holiday Market

With the holiday season officially upon us, local artisans will converge on the valley's go-to art space with everything from hand-knit goods to custom photography, and an assortment of one-of-a-kind, hand-made gifts. Refreshments and arts and crafts for the kids will also be part of the three-day event.

Warren Miller's "Line of Descent"

Friday, December 1, 5 & 8 p.m.; Saturday, December 2, 8 p.m., Vilar Performing Arts Center, Beaver Creek

It's not ski season until Warren Miller's latest ski film makes its Vail Valley debut. Two screenings on Friday and one Saturday evening, showcasing some of the world's most enviable destinations for snow sliding, hopefully will coax Mother Nature and Old Man Winter to return to our corner of high country, and make an extended stay.

Stick around for the afterparty, where a special Friday Afternoon Club with live music will conclude Friday's races, and a "Beers of Prey" après ski event will close out Saturday's competition.

Minturn Winter Market

Saturday, December 2, 10 a.m. to 2 p.m., Minturn

Downtown Minturn morphs into Bedford Falls for a day, with s'more roasting, holiday carolers, and a visit from Santa. If you miss the festivities, the event reprises next Saturday.

Christmas on Broadway 2017
