Don't miss Ryan's alpine ski race on Sunday. Our friends at @fdvoyageur have donated full festival passes to the 2018 Festival du Voyageur which will be awarded to the winner. Check out their new app with the full Festival lineup out now! It's real tasty.
HOT DOG the Snowdance Festival starts tonight! We couldn't be more excited! We are so so looking forward to showing you all some good times in our sweet little town of Falcon Lake, and are so very thankful of how the local community, in particular the Falcon hotel and Whiteshell Community Club, have opened their doors to welcome us. Help us show our thanks to these lovely establishments by being super nice and respectful. Leave things as you found them and (don't leave messes for others to clean up), and give staff a nice thank you when you can. Remember these are family run businesses, and we couldn't do Snowdance without them!
Thanks everyone! Can't wait to see you tonight!
P.s. The pool and water slide at the hotel is open for those who have rooms booked there!!
Our buds at @falcon_beach_ranch will be back on Saturday at the slopes doing skijoring for Snowdance! Yehaw! #snowdancefest

This weekend is SNOW DANCE, our annual music festival! It's here!
It is a weekend full of live music and all sorts of fun woodsy outdoor activities like alpine ski races, igloo building and curling a frozen turkey.
The festival has really grown in popularity over the years and ins unfortunately SOLD OUT. If you were thinking of just coming out to ski this weekend, you will still be able to (anyone with a Snowdance pass or a lift ticket gets access to the chalet), but it should be noted that it will be an extremely busy weekend, so guests should expect limited space in the chalet and line ups.
We will be posting some of the highlights that will be happening at Snow dance on here as we prep for the weekend!

Alright doods, tickets for Snowdance 2018 are officially sold out.
Sorry to anyone who didn't get their hands on tickets, we really wish you all could be there! Alas we are a wee little festival in a wee little community that has very limited indoor capacity.
We have had a number of folks asking about the availability of single day/evening passes and unfortunately, because of limited space there will be no single day/evening passes available other than a small number for Friday night at the community club which will be available at the door only, on a first come, first serve basis. Please don't drive all the way out from Winnipeg without a ticket with the hopes that you can get in somehow, we really don't want to have to turn you away and really don't want to have to police the festival to keep people from sneaking in. As we say, we wish we had space for you all but it's just not possible, and we really want to keep things fun, comfortable and safe for everyone. ** BUT, have you heard about the other super fun time show we we are hosting next month? On February 4 we are hosting Ancient Shapes (Daniel Romano + Kay Berkel) Après-ski Party!. That's right folks, Daniel Romano's new musical project is playing at our funny little ski hill. We are super excited about this, it will be an Après-ski dance party that starts after we shut the slopes down at 4:30 pm. Music to start at 5:30. There will be drinks and food and good times.
Tickets are on sale NOW at this link (get 'em while they last!): https://modernpressurefalconridge.brownpapertickets.com/
