It's 3-year-old Danny Druckman's first time in the snow. After a tough climb up the slippery slope, Danny slides down the hill with his dad.

For hundreds of families, Christmas at Mount Charleston is an annual tradition.
“We have some people that have been coming up 20 years with their families,” said Thomas Schneekloth, the general manager of the lodge.
