SnoFest Cardboard Derby

Think outside or inside the box! Gather your friends, family and co-workers together and challenge yourselves to ride across the lake on a cardboard sled that you built. Build it at home and bring it, or create one with free supplies while they last.

SnoFest 2018 Cardboard Derby will be held on the frozen pond in Copper Mountain Center Village.

Derby entries must be built using only cardboard, duct tape, rope, paper and paint.

Register your cardboard Derby entry on Sat., Jan. 21, between noon - 2 p.m. at the Center Village Conference Center. Build your Derby entry on site between noon - 2 p.m. Judging begins at 2:30 p.m. with the competition starting at 3 p.m.
