CASPER, Wyo. – Celebrate the end of the season with fun and safe activities at the fifth annual Winter Adventure Day on Casper Mountain. This free, family-friendly event will take place from 9:30 a.m. to 2 p.m. on April 15 at the Casper Mountain Biathlon Center at McMurry Mountain Park.

Join educators from multiple local organizations and try your hand at fat biking, Nordic skiing, (electronic) shooting, snowshoeing, and more. Educational stations will also be available for participants to learn about winter safety, snow shelters, animal caching, and other place-based learning activities. Make sure to warm up around the campfire with free hot chocolate!

“April is a great time to get out while the sun is shining and learn about snow sports, safety, and our natural environment with our Winter Adventure Day experts,” says Bureau of Land Management education technician Stacey Moore.

According to Moore, Winter Adventure Day started as way to introduce winter activities to children and others who are interested but may be hesitant to try. “Winter Adventure Day opens the door to the community by providing a variety of activities, as well as the gear and instruction to try them,” Moore says. “Especially now, there are so many people new to Casper and the Mountain West that may be unfamiliar with the fun that mountains and snow can provide.”

Every year, multiple sponsors collaborate to make this an event that is accessible and enjoyable to the whole community. Sponsors include the BLM National Historic Trails Interpretive Center, the Casper Mountain Biathlon Club, Wyoming State Parks, The Science Zone, Central Wyoming Trails Alliance, Casper Mountain Ski Patrol, the Nicolaysen Art Museum, and Casper Mountain Science Programs.

Participation is free, but equipment and lessons are limited to a first come, first served basis. Pre-registration is required to reserve equipment times and lessons. To register for lessons and sign a waiver, visit For more information, contact
