For the last few years, The Ranch Club in Missoula has been hosting their Winter Break event every January, a fun day filled with events that has continued to grow, year after year. A single day has seen as many as 1400 people stop by for ice skating, face painting, beer tastings, sled riding, snow man decorating and more.

As you might imagine, they were faced with a challenge leading into 2021 - would they still be able to hold their Winter Break, or would it have to be postponed until next year thanks to COVID? Well, good news - the Winter Break is still on! But, as with everything, it's going to be different this year than it has been in years past.

The big change is that, rather than hold the event on one day, they're actually spreading it out over FOUR days over the course of two weeks - January 16th, 17th, 23rd, and 24th. And instead of packing in as much people as possible like they used to, this time around they're capping attendance at 75 people per day.

The Ranch Club has all the info you need at their website and they begin accepting reservations TODAY. The entry fee is $10 per person and they're working with the Missoula City-County Health Department to keep everything safe.

It's great that the Ranch Club figured out a way to keep the tradition going - hopefully, by 2022, it'll be safe enough to get this event back to its full glory.

Will you be bringing the family to Winter Break 2021?
