Frosty Fun

Franklin County has no shortage of Winter Fun.

From IceFest to family tubing at Whitetail or a Spa Date, you can chill out with us!


Ice…ice…nearly 50 tons of ice! One of the best parts of winter is Icefest–a four-day festival of frosty fun with more than 80 sculptures, double-wide ice slide, ice throne, Chili Q with barbecue and chili, Snowfall Ball, Icing on the Cake, glassblowing, and even an escape room! Check out events at the 11/30 Visitors Center here. Watch a quick video of past IceFests here.



Whitetail Ski Resort is a great way to have frosty fun. Go skiing. Go snowboarding. Or, go tubing…fun for all. Great food too…sit-down experience at Solstice, hot brick oven pizza at the Mountain Hearth Pizzeria, or a quick bite in the Marketplace. Are you an Epic Pass Holder? Great savings on food, lodging, lessons, and rentals.
