Boyce Park

January 23 – 25
Various times

Searching for a cure for cabin fever? Whether you have prowess in the powder or you’re heading for the bunny hill, this weekend’s SnowFest at Boyce Park has something for every outdoors lover.

The inaugural SnowFest is packed with three days of winter fun for the whole family–including skiing, snowboarding and snowtubing activities and races for ages five and older and Peak Ski & Board Shootouts for ages 18 and up.

Create a sled using only cardboard and duct tape and race down the snowtubing hill to vie for special prizes, compete in the Mini-Junior Olympics and cheer on your favorite Pittsburgh mascots (think Albert the Owl vs. Steely McBeam!) as they race down the snowtubing hill.

Check out the free Winter Wonderland Laser Light Show presented by Lightwave International, enjoy face painting, balloon artistry and magic shows in the Four Seasons Lodge and participate in family games with Find Some Flow near the slopes.

And take advantage of the event’s special all-day lift tickets for one low price, available on January 24th and 25th.

Boyce Park is located 18 miles from downtown Pittsburgh in Monroeville and Plum. The only location in Allegheny County for downhill skiing, the 1,096-acre park also offers snowboarding, snowtubing and cross-country skiing, 21 miles of hiking and biking trails, and houses the Four Seasons Activity Center, Nature Center and 3 B’s Action Park.
