With a weekend of stellar views, low temperatures, and nonstop music Snowball Music Festival found its new home in Winter Park, Colorado. Festival organizers worked to ensure attendees were given a unique and enjoyable weekend and succeeded. The list of complaints is small (and greatly outnumbered by the praises). Here are some touches that made the weekend of music in the mountains:

-A bonfire to huddle around for warmth when temps dipped to the single digits.
-A simple layout that allowed you to wander from stage to stage easily.
-Charter buses that ran from multiple locations around the state made commuting to the festival easy. If you were coming from out of town, then the shuttles were the way to go.
-Extracurricular entertainment: Dancers (both ladies and abominable snowmen), a string of balloons jutting high into the sky, fire hoopers, ice sculptures, and a ski/snowboard trick ramp next to the main stage.
-As for that short complaint list: More than a few unlucky Snowballers fell victim to the treacherous ice that covered the ground in the tents.
