Winter Carnival is absolutely the best party of the season! Each year we choose a theme, and celebrate with live music, costumes, feats of daring, cardboard crafts, and lots and lots of duct tape.
This year's theme is "Under the Sea"
Parking: Parking is limited, so avoid the headache by parking at the Red Lodge Civic Center and enjoying our FREE shuttle. Two Red Lodge Tour & Taxi shuttles will be departing the Civic Center lot at 9:30 am, and then leaving the mountain for town at 2:00 pm (following the Cardboard Classic and costume contest).".

** Feb 20, 2016: Please be aware that for the 2017 Winter Carnival, we are limiting each craft to a maximum of 2 riders. Prior to each Winter Carnival we build a berm to safely separate the Cardboard Classic course and participants from the spectators. Because it’s necessary this season to make the berm from man-made snow, the size of the berm we construct will be limited in size. This smaller berm will have less stopping power, and as such, we are working to limit the combined craft and rider weights. Thank you for your understanding.
