The annual event includes some big changes this year. One of the biggest includes a venue change for the Cardboard Classic to the Burzlander Park Sledding Hill (the Town Sledding Hill) with the race kicking off at noon on Saturday, February 16. Organizers say the move allows nonprofit Main Street Pinedale to honor its mission of “cultivating civic pride by collaborating with businesses, organizations, and community members to foster a vibrant downtown.”

Main Street Pinedale has partnered with the town to help improve the sledding hill and plan to have it groomed for some speedy sledding.

  • Snow Ball with LIVE music from Timmy the Teeth and his full band
  • Crowning of this year’s Snow King & Queen hosted by the Wind River Brewing Company,
  • Yukon Cornhole Tournament hosted by the World Famous Corral Bar
  • Adult Coed Hockey Tournament all weekend at the Sublette County Ice Arena.

The Pinedale Winter Carnival is Main Street Pinedale’s big fundraiser for the year and is a way to encourage people to get outside in the middle of February to have some fun with their friends and family and to help give downtown businesses a little economic boost.

Main Street Pinedale is a nonprofit organization that works with numerous community members and partners to help pull off this event. The group is made up of an all-volunteer board. The money raised during the Winter Carnival goes directly back into the community in the form of business façade grants, economic development, downtown beautification, and historic preservation.
