Let It Snow Ticket Giveaway

let it snow flurryLet It Snow is back at Four Seasons Hotel Westlake Village, with its magical holiday delights. Ticket sales are closed without a hotel stay, but you can win a set of four tickets here!

If you have a child and live in The Bubble, you’ve probably heard about Let It Snow, one of our area’s loveliest holiday season traditions. The Four Seasons Westlake Village hosts this magical event every year: on the weekends, their outdoor area transforms into a snowy delight, featuring Santa and Mrs. Santa Claus, regular “snowstorms,” a hot chocolate bar, a s’mores fire pit experience, cookie decorating, and, new this year, North Pole bounce houses!

People gather with their children at the Lookout at the Four Seasons, which itself is decked out in holiday decorations, making you feel warm and welcome as soon as you step through the lobby doors.

Once you check in to Let It Snow, you enter Holiday world! There is a train that takes the children around the back lot, which is peppered with holiday lights and scenes, and they might catch a glimpse of other holiday “celebrities.”

Food and beverages are available for purchase at the event (pretzels were popular with my kid this year); or make a reservation for dinner at Mercado and save 20% with your Let It Snow wristband.

Seems amazing, right? The catch is that tickets are hard to get — keep your eyes out for Conejo Deals’ ticket offering every November. Once the deal is closed, the tickets are available if you are a guest at the Four Seasons hotel (which I highly recommend for a staycation indulgence, because it is the lap of luxury and the kids love it). Otherwise, you can enter this ticket giveaway and win four tickets to attend Let It Snow on one of its remaining dates!
