All festival-goers will be treated to:

  • Discounted trail passes to explore up to 100 kilometers of terrain for just $10—regularly $30
  • Discounted ski or snowshoe rental equipment at $15—regularly $25
  • Free lessons and tours
  • Free demo day - the latest and greatest in cross country ski, snowshoe and fat bike equipment will be available to try, free of charge
  • Live music
  • Barbeque

“It’s our goal to host Winter Festival every year as we continue to reach out to new and returning skiers,” said Jones. “Winter Festival is more than just a day to learn to ski—it’s the complete festival experience with vendors, hearty food and live music, and we hope everyone comes out to enjoy it with us.”
