If you want to enjoy the snow while staying warm this weekend, Baldy Mountain Resort has you covered.

On Feb. 9, the resort will host its inaugural ‘Uncork!’ winter wine festival from 6:30 until 9:30 p.m.

There will also be food stations, including ice wine snow cones, and live music played throughout the night.
