When it was time to warm up veterans could check out the local agencies set up in the lodge to highlight the resources available to them.

"This is our effort of giving back to the community. To give the veterans a chance to get out and ski,” said Lost Valley General Manager, John Herrick.

There was live music and a buffet as well.

They even brewed up a special blonde ale for the occasion called "Vets in the Valley."
