Are you tired of being cooped up during winter? With a multitude of events to start off spring, you will be sure to kick those winter blues to the curb and have some genuine fun this spring.


Mount Sunapee Annual Dummy Big Air Contest
If you are looking for some entertainment for the whole family, come watch as dummy skiers and snowboarders are launched off a huge ramp. Even if your dummy doesn’t get an award for highest air, don’t despair, as prizes are also given for the best designed dummies and best crash. You might just be the lucky winner this year.


Keep your eyes peeled for Springfest at Mt. Sunapee. Shed some winter pounds this spring by skiing the Mt. Sunapee slopes. Then take a break from skiing and grab some food while listening to some music from some talented singers. Be sure to get your tickets for the concert ahead of time, they sell out fast!

Annual Slushcup
The Mount Sunapee Annual Slushcup is an event that you don’t want to miss. It’s one of the most popular events in the Lake Sunapee area and has locals attending every year. Come and watch as 200 skiers and snowboarders try to skim across a pond – it’s either sink or skim! You better hope you skim since the pond is only a whopping 36 degrees. Brrrr. Prizes are awarded for best splash, best skim, and best costume.

Annual Cardboard Sled Race
How well can you build a sled? If you are up for a challenge, then attend the annual Mount Sunapee cardboard sled race where contestants compete on original sleds made out of only cardboard, tape, paint, and wax. Awards are given to the fastest sled and best self-destruction of a sled.


Annual 5k Black Fly Blitz
There is no better way to get ready for those summer beach days than participating in the Annual 5k Black Fly Blitz. Whether you decide to run or walk, you can enjoy the race in scenic Wilmot. Be sure to stay after the race for music, games, and much more. You can register at
