The base of Shawnee Mountain will come alive on Sunday, Feb. 26 with a festive carnival atmosphere and a fun day for skiers, snowboarders, snow tubers and spectators.
Presented by Shawnee Mountain Ski Area and sponsored by Coca-Cola, Winter Carnival Day features ice sculptures, music, games, trivia contests, product sampling, outdoor BBQ, prizes and giveaways.
Sculpted Ice Works of Lakeville, PA will present an Ice Sculpture contest during the festival. Three professional ice carvers will each transform a 300-pound solid block of ice into a sculpted work of art in front of the festival crowd. Afterwards spectators will have the opportunity to vote for their favorite carver and sculpture with a “Peoples Choice” award presented at 2 p.m.

Local radio station DJs will be pumping up the crowd with music and giveaways. Equipment brands and sponsors will be on hand with tents and demos available.
The majority of activities will take place from 11 a.m to 2 p.m in the base area, slope side. Funnel cake, kettle corn, crepe and roasted nut concessions along with face painting and carnival games for the kids will all add to the Winter Carnival atmosphere. Grab the kids and head on over for an awesome day.
