February Fun Fest

2022 February Fun Fest Event Schedule

Our FREE February Fun Fest Weekend celebration includes a giant snow castle and mountain-wide scavenger hunt, with heaps of fantastic prizes and more fun than you can shake a ski pole at.

Snow Castle (Saturday, Sunday & Monday)
Time: Opens at 9 a.m.

Every year, a giant snow castle is built by the mountain team at Sipapu.  It’s a snow playground for all ages and the only one in New Mexico! Each year, the snow castle changes in design, but what remains constant is the sheer size, which is usually 2-3 stories tall, the unique creation of stairs, slides, flags, and plenty of places to play in the snow!  The building of the snow castle begins the week before fun fest, and the castle stays up until Spring Break. The snow castle opens at 9 am on Saturday, Feb. 26 and is open for all to explore and enjoy.

All Day Circus Animal Scavenger Hunt (Saturday)
Find the circus animals hanging all over the mountain. Find one and it’s yours to keep!

Costume Contest & Parade Down Lower Gable (Saturday)
Time: 1 pm
Wear your favorite costume for prizes and parade down lower gamble! The parade starts at 1 pm! See you then!

Penny Toss (Saturday)
