Where to Find Snow in San Diego this Winter
Records might indicate it hasn’t snowed in San Diego since 1967, but we here at Welk Resorts beg to differ. It snows in America’s Finest City every year! That’s right: Welk Resorts San Diego celebrates Winter Wonderland every mid-December. Join us for a two-day holiday celebration packed with all the holiday festivities you can imagine—with REAL snow!
Guests of all ages are welcome as we frolic in the powdery white and ring in the holiday season. We’ll have rockin’ live music, special holiday vendors and, of course, plenty of piping hot chocolate and toasty hot toddies available to keep you warm throughout the day. Various food trucks serving up tasty meals will also be on hand. Best of all, the resort will be totally decked out with Christmas lights, ornaments, and boughs of holly, making for the perfect Southern California winter celebration.
Winter Wonderland Activities:
Meet Santa Claus, pet and feed his reindeer, and take a picture!
Play in 5,700 square-feet of snow, including custom-built hills of snow for snow tubing
Roast s'mores around our cozy fire pits
Elf Missions, games, and crafts in Santa's Elf Academy
Our annual Winter Wonderland is jam-packed with winter fun for you and your family to enjoy. Be sure to bring some warm(er) clothes and all the holiday spirit you can manage! Additional food will be available for purchase, including snow cones, cotton candy, kettle corn, and gourmet cookies.
Of course, if you’d like to stay the night, please do! We’re happy to offer you Frosty’s Family Special Package, which includes four (4) VIP passes to Winter Wonderland and all activities, front of the line privileges, and a one-night stay at Welk Resorts San Diego (along with our popular elf tuck-in with a Christmas bedtime story for two children).* To take advantage of this exclusive deal, call 888.339.4742 to reserve your spot today.
