It’s time to talk turkey! We’re teaming up with KSNO the Mammoth and Bighorn Toyota for the third annual Turkey Tram-a-Ganza to stock up our local food pantries before Thanksgiving.
This event benefits LIFT-UP’s local food pantries by collecting turkeys and other Thanksgiving dinner fixings for area families in need. To encourage community participation, we’ll contribute up to four free tram rides for each donated turkey, plus an entry in a drawing for an Annual Thrill Pass or two day passes to the Iron Mountain Hot Springs! Four winners will be selected.
Bighorn Toyota will have a truck at the tram base where you can drop off frozen turkeys, register for the drawing and pick up the free tram passes between noon and 4 p.m. You can also receive one free tram pass per person by donating cans of food or other non-perishable items.
The free tram rides are valid that day only and can be used to enjoy the Winter on the Mountain kick-off party that begins at 5 p.m. It’s a festive start to the holiday season, with 35 miles of colorful lights decorating the park, the lighting of the giant musical Christmas tree at 7 p.m., live music and a visit from
Santa Claus. The Lookout Grille will be open for lunch and dinner as well.
The last tram ride up the mountain will be at 7:30 p.m.; the park will close at 8.
