2017 Winter Carnival

The Winter Carnival at Eagle Ridge Resort and Spa is back for 2017! Families and couples alike are invited to spend Presidents' Day Weekend at Eagle Ridge Resort & Spa. Come and try our Nordic Center activities including snowshoeing and cross country skiing through seven miles of groomed trails, sledding and ice skating. Stay for the turkey bowling and pony rides on Friday compliments of Shenandoah Riding Center, new this year at Eagle Ridge Resort! 

As a special treat, the Winter Carnival will feature two Fire and Ice Winter Glow shows at the marina behind Eagle Ridge Resort & Spa, one on Saturday night and one on Sunday night. In case of bad weather, the Fire and Ice Glow shows will take place at the Recreation Field. Enjoy a cozy bonfire while watching Galena on the Fly light up multiple hot air balloons over Lake Galena, magically lighting the night sky!

CLICK HERE to check out our Presidents' Day Package, good during the Winter Carnival!

Please note: Many of these activities are weather and ice dependent. Please check with the Front Desk when you arrive for exact locations, dates and times of all activities.
