More than 100,000 people attended Vulcan Snow Park in 2017. Plan on coming on out in 2018 -- we'll have so much going on! We're planning a bigger park with three weeks of events and activities. Keep an eye on our Facebook page and our website (mnsnowpark.com). We'll be updating them as all the new events get nailed down.

The Snow Park and snow slide are now officially closed for the season. We hope you’re looking forward to next year! In the meantime, we hear that there’s some other event that takes place on the Kidway during the summer…
The snow slide will be open from 9am to 9pm today! Visit us between 12pm and 2pm for the chance to win a snow skiing helmet courtesy of HealthPartners. Special thanks to Ramsey County Sheriff’s Reserves for today’s snow slide volunteer coverage.
The snow slide will be open from 5-9pm tonight, and the first 100 visitors get a free stocking hat courtesy of City & County Credit Union! Special thanks to City & County Credit Union for tonight’s snow slide volunteer coverage.
The sculptures are still mostly standing and lit for nighttime viewing. Come see them quickly before they erode and collapse even further.
Our sculptors know how to have fun! Congratulations to House of Thune. With your first place finish, you are entered into the 2018 nationals in Geneva, WI, compliments of the St. Paul Vulcans.
Last year’s 1st Place winners, team Dino Fight!, are on their way today to the U.S. National Snow Sculpting Competition (http://www.usnationals.org) in Lake Gen...eva, Wisconsin. Jaymie Stocks (Ely, MN), Heather Friedli-Ratzlaff (Minneapolis, MN), and Brian Keeler (Eagan, MN) will spend the next four days pitting their snow sculpting skills against teams from around the country. Good luck, team Minnesota! We know you’ll be awesome!
