Live Music Series
The music series is a favorite part of this annual festival. The Winter Park Spring Splash 2018 lineup has not yet been announced, but visit the Winter Park Resort events page to get the latest information. On Saturday, March 31st, head to Hideaway Park in downtown Winter Park for the first concert installment. Then, every Saturday in April, enjoy live tunes at the base of the resort near the Derailer Bar.
Throughout the month, there are three major ski events. On opening day, anyone is welcome to participate in the Clif Bar® Duel Obstacle Course challenge. Go head-to-head with other skiers to finish the course quickest, and you’ll win a GoPro Hero 6! For those not interested in skiing, hang out at the Derailer Bar and watch the competition take place.
Young skiers under the age of five can enter into the Golden Bunny Classic. This untimed, fun race will take place on the Lower Village Way trail. Following the event, kids can partake in an Easter egg hunt! Non-skiers will hunt for candy at the base of the mountain, while kids wanting to ski will search for candy on the Porcupine and Bobcat trails in Discovery Park.
The most anticipated event of the month, the Monster Energy® Spring Splash is a true test of skill. Snowboarders and skiers take to the mountain on the Larry Sale trail race course. Then, once they’ve passed the obstacles, they must navigate the ice-covered pond at the end of the course. The top three winners in both the skiing and snowboarding category will receive cash prizes.
