Start Gate

Welcome to Start Gate

Start Gate is the website for all students and adults attending Winter Park Ski-Music Festival where you will individually register online.

Before you get started on your required individual online registration, We have listed several important festival topics that everyone attending the festival should know about.

All of these topics have a web link to open so the information can be viewed, or even printed for future reference. Anyone can return to this START GATE page anytime to view these festival topics again.

3 recreation activities are available for you to choose from, when you register online. You will be asked to select only ONE of the available activities:

  1.  Downhill skiing at Winter Park Resort
  2.  Downhill snowboarding at Winter Park Resort
  3.  Non-ski mountain activities at Winter Park Resort

Some music directors or trip organizers may prohibit a particular activity for their group members to choose.

Since this is such an important, and financially sensitive decision to be made, we want every adult and student (and student’s parent) to know all the details about each of these activities.
