If you want to enjoy the snow while staying warm this weekend, Baldy Mountain Resort has you covered.

On Feb. 9, the resort will host its inaugural ‘Uncork!’ winter wine festival from 6:30 until 9:30 p.m.

The festival will feature 12 wineries from the Oliver Osoyoos Winery Association. Winemakers will be there to do the pouring themselves and some of the wines that will be served are not available in stores.

The festival will take place outside, but there will be a tent, bonfires, torches, fire dancers, jugglers and fireworks to keep attendees warm.

There will also be food stations, including ice wine snow cones, and live music played throughout the night.
