What is winter carnival you might ask?

Winter Carnival is a 1 day extravaganza put on by Red Lodge Mountain Resort with tons of events, prizes and good times. Complete with live music, a rail jam, cardboard classic, tons of prize give aways it is an epic way to spend a Saturday.

Update: We are sad to announce that we have cancelled the Cardboard Classic Race for this year's Winter Carnival.

To safely operate the Cardboard Classic we must build two large snow berms - one that separates the crafts from the spectators and ski traffic, and one at the finish line to stop crafts in front of the Main Lodge. These berms take a massive amount of snow to build, and as many of you know, we have received an unusually low amount of snowfall this season. That being said, we are unable to build the berms that would ensure a safe event for both participants and spectators.

We will keep all other events on the schedule, including the Rail Jam, live music, fireworks, and torchlight parade. For those that have built a craft and would like to show off their work, we will also be judging and awarding for most creative. There is no fee to enter the costume or craft contest.

To help ease pain, we will be selling adult lift tickets for $35 during Winter Carnival. These lift tickets will be available at the ticket windows.
