Snowdance 2018: January 19/20/21! Mark your calendars!
Stay tuned for ticket release dates and pricing and line up announcements!
Here are some killer videos from last year's fun:
Find those mittens your grandma made for you. Borrow your roommate’s boots. Put on all your long johns at once. Wear that really cool scarf that brings out the blue in your eyes (even if they’re brown). And head out to the woods for Snowdance, the wintery music festival at the Falcon Lake ski slopes.
Fill your lungs with pine tree air and catch some sweet air on our ski jumps. Or ski backwards all afternoon as slopes regular Mark Hood does. Or, just ski like a normal person.

While skiers get their kicks on the slopes, on stage in the chalet at the base of the hill will be bluegrass, pop, soul and a little rock n’ roll – live music Friday night, all day Saturday and Sunday from some of the finest bands around these parts.
Things kick off Friday night with the show + funspiel at the Falcon Lake Curling Club. That's right, you can watch great bands and curling at the same time! Start getting your curling team together for the funspeil, we will be opening registration soon. Open to anyone, with or without experience!
Saturday afternoon will also be your big chance to get caught up on some of those wintertime skills that your grandparents are appalled you don’t already know. This year’s workshops are TBA, but last year we had blacksmithing, igloo building and trapping. Oh, and no joke, we're doing this:
That's right, skiing behind horses. Spectate or participate, but who would want to miss this? Well, maybe your kill-joy grade three teacher would. Take this chance to mark them absent.
Saturday night, we invade the Falcon Lake bar for the dance party portion of the festival, featuring general hooliganry in sweaters. The bar is attached to the hotel so book yourself a room at discounted Snowdance prices that are too low to print. Just kidding, here they are (link). Booking is so easy that it’s literally a piece of cake. Or at least we wish it was so that we could eat it. Edible booking procedures.
Are you somewhere between 1 and 100 years old? If so, see you out in the woods! The festival is hell of a good time for all ages. If you are younger than 1 or older than 100, same thing.
Winter is definitely in the top four seasons. Don’t let anyone tell you differently because Snowdance is proof.

**NEW THIS YEAR: FRIDAY NIGHT PARTY AT THE CURLING CLUB!!
That's right folks, we've added Friday night fun to the weekend this year. We will be hosting a big shaker of a show at the curling club located in the townsite of Falcon Lake (a short walk from the Falcon Lake Resort Hotel). We will also be running a mini bonspiel during the show, so start putting your curling team together. The concert will be held in the rink viewing area, so you can watch the music and the curling AT THE SAME TIME. How great is that?
