Sipapu Ski Resort will host its annual President’s Day weekend celebration, the February Fun Fest.
It’s Sipapu’s most popular free family event, which includes a giant snow castle, costume contest and parade, mountain-wide treasure hunt, games, prizes and more.
Sipapu Snow Castle
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 two- to three-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 Tuesday and lasts throughout the week.
The snow castle opens at 9 a.m. Saturday and is open for all to explore and enjoy.
This weekend, Sipapu hosts a fun Treasure Hunt, which is part scavenger hunt and all adventure. Search the mountain Saturday, Sunday and Monday, from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. for laminated letters. When letters gathered spell CLOWN, return them to Ski School for a great prize.
