The Winter Park Signature Events are all set here in Winter Park, Colorado.  There are a few new ones to go along with the classics.  The signature events are the ones you will only find here in our little piece of paradise in the Colorado Rocky Mountains.  Here are all the Winter Park Signature Events for 2012 and 2013:

New Years Eve at the Icebox

DEc 31 from 7pm to 9pm at the Icebox Icerink

Celebrants will glide into the New Year in smooth style at this year’s Black Light Skating Party. Fraser Valley Sports Complex will host the event in its recently debuted “IceBox,” a naturally frozen and partially enclosed ice rink. Skaters can twirl and whirl the year away from 7-9 p.m. and can then ring in the New Year with a bang at the 9 p.m. fireworks show.

 Winter Park SnowDash

Jan 6 all day at Hideaway Park

This year Winter Park has partnered with Fit5280 to bring the extreme SnowDash race to Colorado’s favorite playground on Jan. 26. At over 10,000 feet, this adventure race is an obstacle course complete with snow, music, beer and plenty of cheer. Warriors welcome!

Winter Park Winter Carnival

Jan 26 and 27 all day at Winter park resort and town of wp

Honoring the birthday of local legend Mary Jane, this winter festival is not just for the historians. The two-day celebration, Jan. 26-27, invites one and all to take part in live music, a snow-sculpture contest, sledding races, snowshoe treks, fireworks, a parade and much more.

Grand Park Dog Days of Winter

Feb 16 and 17 all day at grand park

Grand Park will once again go to the dogs for the annual Dog Days of Winter sled dog races, Feb. 16-17. The International Sled Dog Racing Association-sanctioned races will offer slots for sled teams of four, six and eight dogs, a three-dog junior division and one- and two-dog skijoring, where mushers are pulled by their pooches atop cross-country skis.

SnowBall 2013 Music Festival

March 8 to 10 all day at Grand Park

The sound-packed weekend of songs and snow dance is back with a vengeance, Mar. 8-10, in Grand Park! Third time promises to charm as Winter Park seizes the title of host. A jam-packed lineup with music in a variety of genres makes this winter music fest a hit for all.

Winter Park Wipe Out

April 6 all day at winter park resort and grand park

This brand new adventure challenge race will have participants pin-balling around Winter Park, completing tasks and challenges like puzzle solving, clue finding and obstacle tackling. Each completed task earns a string of beads. Those who collect enough beads are able to “buy” their way back into The Gauntlet at Grand Park where live music and beer await.

A great lineup of signature events here in Winter Park, Colorado. Most of these events will be fully booked for lodging so make sure to get your preferred digs early. The snow is starting to fall and we are looking at having a great winter in WP.
