It’s that time of year again when this cool little party happens out in the woods: An event known as Snowdance Festival of Music + Winter at the Falcon Ridge Ski Slopes on Saturday, January 16 and Sunday, January 17.
Whether you want to hit the slopes, hang out in the chalet and take in the bands, or both – This is one woodland festival you do not want to miss out on.
This year there will once again be a variety of outdoor workshops the entire family can take part including igloo building, skijoring with dogs and horses, winter camping demonstrations, a frozen turkey shoot, ice bucket curling, shinny, a polar bear swim & sauna and much more.
A variety of local talent is set to hit the stage, ranging from bluegrass to pop to soul as well as some rock and roll. The Saturday night party will shuffle down from the Falcon Ridge Ski Slopes to the Falcon Lake Resort. The lineup for the weekend:
