This winter, plan your weekend getaway to the mountains and consider taking the scenic route! Whether you’re on the hunt for new skiing gear, a rest stop for the night, or anything in between, the “Hub City” boasts the necessary amenities to serve as your base-camp before continuing north.

While here, consider a stay at the Cotton Court Hotel. As Lubbock’s newest boutique hotel, it offers guests a uniquely Lubbock experience. Just one mile east, Chef Finn Walter dishes up cosmopolitan fare with a South Plains twist at The Nicolett. After dinner, experience the legacy of Buddy Holly on stage at one of our many local venues with a local craft brew from Two Docs Brewing Co. or an award-winning vino from McPherson Cellars in hand. 

The Nicolett in Lubbock offers the perfect ambience for an evening meal with loved ones.

Before strapping in your boots and riding up the lift, make a stop at Mountain Hideaway to stock up on all the must haves likes coats, gloves, and hats. If you need an extra pair of goggles or hand warmers, this shop offers what you need. At Troy’s Ski Shop, wax your board and grab a new pair of skis with bindings and boots for your trip down the slopes. Don’t forget lift tickets!
