Groups compete against same school size, ensemble type and level. Comments and ratings are provided by 3 recognized and experienced adjudicators.
Awards & Street Dance
Each festival week concludes with an exciting outdoors awards ceremony and DJ’d Street Dance at the base of Winter Park Resort.
Select ONE festival package for your entire music group. Each member of your group receives the same.
Festival Packages Include:
Every registered attendee will receive an overnight bed space for the number of nights within a group’s chosen lodging facility. Groups can choose to stay 2,3, or 4 nights in one of our seven different lodging options.
Participation in performance
Groups will compete each week with ensembles of similar size and performance skill. A panel of three respected adjudicators will provide constructive feedback and score the competing groups. Each festival week ends with a highly energetic awards ceremony and DJ’d street dance.
Choice of ONE recreation activity
Every registered attendee will have mountain recreation included, and will choose between 3 days of skiing or snowboarding (including lift card, equipment rental & beginner lesson), OR redeem vouchers for our non-ski activities: downhill tubing, gondola rides, snowcat tours, and/or snowshoe tours.
Destination: Winter Park, Colorado
Just imagine your band, choir or orchestra traveling into the majestic Rocky Mountains west of Denver, crossing this nation’s visually breathtaking Continental Divide, descending into Winter Park, nestled in a valley surrounded by beautiful snow-covered mountain peaks towering over 13,000 feet in elevation. Outside of the classroom setting, directors find it really comfortable traveling with their students to a breathtaking outdoor geographical location, in the safe, less populated, slower paced Winter Park, Colorado.

What to Expect
Something For Everyone!
WPSMF offers many different festival packages for a group to choose from. The differences are simply which overnight lodging choice to stay within, and the number of nights (2-4) you wish to stay, best fulfilling your travel desires and budget. Each festival package, for each group member, includes their overnight lodging bed space, choice of recreation activity(s), and participation in all festival activities.
For example, any group member choosing to ski or snowboard will receive a 3 day lift card, 3 days of rental equipment, and a beginner lesson. Or, we offer substitute mountain activities for non-skiers.
