Tips For Getting The Most Out Of A Mountain Resort's Entertainment

by Kathryn Bryant

Staying at a mountain resort gives you the chance to design the vacation of your dreams. Whether you want to spend the day on the slopes or enjoy a lot of time relaxing by the warmth of the fire while taking in gorgeous views, you can do things your way.

While planning your stay, keep in mind that many mountain resorts schedule high-quality entertainment onsite. You may be able to enjoy live music and novelty entertainers. Consider these tips for getting the most out of the entertainment that's offered at the mountain resort you've chosen. 

Tip #1: Request the Entertainment Schedule Before You Arrive

Be in touch with the manager at the mountain resort where you are staying a few days before you arrive. At that time, you can request an entertainment schedule for the duration of your stay. They will likely be able to accommodate the request and send you details about the types of onsite entertainment that will be available to you. Having the schedule in advance empowers you to make restaurant reservations and plan excursions around the musical acts and performances you most want to see.

Tip #2: Ask the Resort Staff for Their Insights

The resort staff is there to help make your stay as pleasurable and fun as possible. If you have any questions about entertainment, you can ask staff members for help. When you tell them the types of entertainment you most enjoy, they will be able to provide insights about which acts you may like the best. Also, you may also ask staff members to tell you their favorites. Many will let you in on who they like to see perform and why they like them.

Tip #3: Find Out the Tipping Etiquette for Resort Performers

The musical acts and many mountain resorts are paid as freelancers by the resort itself. They don't expect guests to pay the musical acts any additional money. However, some resorts allow musicians to perform for tips. If you see a musician with a tip jar or tip hat, feel free to offer tips if you have enjoyed their performance. If in doubt, though, always feel free to ask the manager or concierge. They should be able to let you know when and whether tipping is appropriate.

Finally, keep in mind that you are getting away to have fun. Try to go with the flow when it comes to your entertainment choices. When you stay open to experience new, you open yourself up to having the best possible time on your trip. Look for a mountain resort with entertainment that you could visit.
