Call us curmudgeons but we refuse to think about Christmas until Thanksgiving is over. Now that the turkey is picked clean, we’re considering the Yule. Waterville Valley Resort’s trying to get families into the holiday spirit this year with a package from $84 per person (quadruple occupancy) for a weekend that includes riding on a horse-drawn sleigh out to White Mountains Christmas Tree Farm to pick out the family tree, and free skiing on one day of the weekend stay. The offer is good for December 5-7 and 12-14. Full details on the Family Holiday Tree & Ski package are available on the ski area’s web site, www.visitwatervillevalley.com, or by calling 1-800-GO-VALLEY.
