Christmas in July at the Gaylord Rockies
I was recently invited to the Gaylord Rockies to check out the new hotel (which I pass by every time I head to the airport) my kids have been begging me for a staycation at the hotel, and I was so thrilled when they asked me to bring the family down to check it out and preview the Christmas programming for 2019!
Though the Gaylord Rockies was open for Christmas last year, this year will be the first to celebrate ICE! - The Gaylord Hotel's immersive Christmas wonderland that includes ice skating, tubing, their very own cirque show called Cirque Dreamz, ice sculptures, and even ice slides you can slide down - all around the hotel!
Christmas in July is a great excuse to get out your holiday décor or even start planning ahead before the holidays arrive - and the annual sale brings you the BEST deals on Balsam Hill's gorgeous trees every year - and this year, Balsam Hill and the Gaylord Hotels have teamed up with my to bring you something REALLY amazing - the chance to win a Christmas prize package valued at $2400 to visit ANY Gaylord Hotel this Christmas for their gorgeous ICE! program, as well as your very own Balsam Hill tree and ornaments!

Could you imagine spending your holidays here at one of these amazing Gaylord resorts?
It might be summer now, but I got to preview some of the Gaylord Resorts Christmas magic this past week at the Gaylord Rockies hotel and conference center - and let me tell you, the first official ICE! that will be held later this year is going to be amazing!
One hundred ice artisans travel across the globe from Harbin, China, to hand carve the life-size ice attractions - including gorgeous ice sculptures, features, and even ice slides!
They carve 10M pounds of ice over the course of 30 days. In order to keep the ice intact, the temperature inside of ICE! is kept at a wintry 9 degrees.
Each Gaylord hotel provides complimentary ICE! parkas are provided to keep everyone warm... so you can feel that 9 degree chill, without being too cold!
The Gaylord Hotels all host different ICE! themes - and they change every year, so there is always something new to enjoy from year after year - as well as al the amazing holiday experiences to explore ( Ice Skating , Snow Tubing and Gingerbread decorating – just to name a few!)
