For a snow castle, an on-mountain treasure hunt, prizes, and more, make a trip to Sipapu, New Mexico, for February Fun Fest. Lasting from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. Feb. 18, this event ensures a good time for family members of all ages!
“February Fun Fest is an event that everyone can enjoy for free,” said Sipapu representative Ian McPherson. “Many of our guests may also qualify for a free lift ticket if they are looking to some skiing while enjoying the February Fun Fest. Kids 7 and under, fourth- and fifth-graders, and guests ages 40, 60 and 70+ all ski free at Sipapu.”
One of the main attraction sat February Fun Fest is an enormous snow castle, the only of its kind in New Mexico.
“First, mountain crews use snow machines to create a large snow pile,” McPherson said. “Once the snow pile is created, it takes our Mountain Crew about 40 hours to shape the castle into the structure guests will be able to play on. It typically takes a total of 10 days from start to finish.”
Along with the snow castle, an on-mountain treasure hunt is another activity for guests to take part in.
Guests search the mountain for laminated letters, and when they can spell ‘clown,’ they bring the letters to the ski school in exchange for a prize,” McPherson said.
February Fun Fest is the perfect chance to get to the mountains, ski or snowboard, and spend quality time with family.
