In the morning, use shovels to build a massive dome of snow. After a break to warm up and allow the snow to settle and pack, you’ll carve the dome from the inside-out. When you’re finished, everyone will hopefully have a shelter that can fit four-to-six people inside at a time.

At the very least, we’ll have stayed warm and made some great memories. BYO snow shovel and a mug for hot cocoa. Feel free to bring other snow sports equipment – Wright Park has some fantastic opportunities to play outside. We’ll have a fire going to keep warm, and we’ll have hot cocoa. Feel free to bring snacks and refreshments.

Free. Drop-in anytime between 9-12 and 2-5. All ages welcome.  Park at Seymour St. Extension

Wear clothing for being outside in winter. There are no bathrooms on site. Please plan accordingly. BYO shovel.
