New Year night celebration at Crystal Mountain

How did you meet 2010 ?
Was it the night to remember or "just another night " ? Aren't you tired of the same old routine ( watching the ball drop at The Times Square on TV ; celebrating at home with your relatives and friends ; watching fireworks shoot off of the Seattle Space Needle ) ?

For years, it's been a tradition for my family to celebrate New Year at the Bavarian village of Leavenworth. Besides holiday atmosphere, the town offers many adventures and outdoor activities : moonlight snowmobiling tours, romantic sleigh dinner rides, cross country skiing, local hatchery snowshoeing walks, ice fishing on Lake Wenatchee.

But this years we changed our plans, and spent our New Year night at Crystal ski area. The celebration kicked off with beautiful fireworks, followed by booze and dancing at the Bullwheel with DJ Super Dave.

Another reason to be outside that night was ... blue moon ! ( if you missed it , the next blue moon will be Aug. 31st 2012. However, there won't be another blue moon on NYE until 2028 ). You can read here about 2010 Rare New Year's Eve Occurrence.
