Winter Park Winter Carnival

WP Winter Carnival

Winter Park Winter Carnival

Honoring the birthday of local legend Mary Jane, this winter festival is not just for the historians. The two-day celebration, Jan. 25-26, invites one and all to take part in live music, a snow-sculpture contest, cross country ski race, silent auction, fireworks, and a main street parade.  

New this year, the Winter Park Fraser Chamber have partnered with Devil's Thumb Ranch Resort & Spa to announce a brand new event, the inaugural Stagecoach Classic.  This 30km/15km classic cross country ski race and tour will start at Devil’s Thumb Ranch Resort & Spa, traverse through the former Idlewild Ski Area and finish with a post-race after party with live music from the ACME band at Hideaway Park in Downtown Winter Park.  Food and drinks will be available for purchase on site.
