Rock the Cradle Pop Up Ski Party
Join The Current at Afton Alps on Sunday, January 26 for the Rock the Cradle Pop Up Ski Party. It’s a day of outdoor fun on the ski hill for kids and their grownups — and a great day to beat the winter blues!
Hoola hoop and boogie down with Twinkle the mascot and spin a giant prize wheel at the Children’s Minnesota outdoor kids’ disco dance party DJed by Jade. Hear live music from Minneapolis six-piece funk and soul band Purple Funk Metropolis, and catch thrilling fire performances from Celestial Circus Productions. Looking to get your kiddo on the hill for the first time? Check out the intro to Ski School! Plus you can try out the Burton Riglet course for free during the event. And, of course, there will be snacks from GoGo squeeZ.
The Event is free and open to the public, but a lift ticket is required if you’d like to ski. MPR Members can enjoy $10 off lift tickets — just bring your Member Card or know your Member number to get the discount.
