A very sweet new holiday tradition.

Saint Nick will be in the Alpen Haus every Wednesday from 4pm – 9pm. Swing by with friends and family to enjoy a great photo opportunity and to wish Blue Saint Nick a happy holiday season.  Why Blue Saint Nick?  The color blue was traditional for the German version of St. Nikolaus. Frohes Fest!
