WinterFest

About Winterfest

Beaver Creek Loves Kids “WinterFest” is back! Celebrate the season with performances, interactive activities, WinterFest characters, parades, contests, holiday lights and more!  Activities occur each day on the Village Plaza during après ski hours – join us for excitement in the Village after a day of excitement on the slopes. All WinterFest activities are free and fun for “kids” of all ages! 


Before you visit Beaver Creek for the holidays – get to know the WinterFest Characters from the magical Land of Winderlund!

You’ll meet Helayna the Ice Princess, Prince Chestnut, Fedgewick the Storyteller, Scurry & Snowflake the Troublesome Elves and many more each day on the Plaza – they are here to guide you on your holiday journey and make sure you and your family are experiencing magic at every turn!

We have a few more visitors from the land of Winderlund – though these animals are made of ice, they are very much alive in the land of Winderlund. Each year when the winter chill arrives and it is cold enough for them to come out of the land below the fountain they, with our other characters, come to visit Beaver Creek. You can see them on display at the fountain stage and around the resort plaza!


Baragon the Polar Bear: The patriarch and protector of the ice animals of Winderlund. He sits above all, watching for signs of any danger on top of the Beaver Creek Fountain.

Midgard the Mountain Lion: First knight of the ice animals and a protector of all.

Fryja the Eagle: she is noble and loving to all the ice animals, watching over them and trying hard to keep them from mischief!

Norsemer the Owl: He is a wise old sage, magician and wizard of the ice animals

Poppi & Sprittle: 2 of the most loved penguins in their large family!

Valky the Lookout: A penquin who sits on the WinterFest sign to welcome all to WinterFest!

The Runaway Penguins: We have 5 mischevious ice penguins who seem to have run away from the fountain and scattered around the resort! Each day the children and search for the penguins and win a prize if they find all five!
