  • 2 through 8 bedroom modern cabins that will sleep up to 40 persons- all under one roof for easy chaperoning. Larger groups can use multiple cabins.  Registered groups should already know what size cabins have been reserved for them through the festival.  The festival can send floor plans and bedroom layouts for any cabin being used.
  • Living area, kitchen (prepare your own meals), dining area, fireplace, cable TV, Wi-Fi, and outdoor grill are all for your entire group
  • Per Person Price based on Maximum Occupancy. $35 empty bed space charge per space per night may apply for cabins filled with less than minimum occupancy.  Ask festival staff about cabin sizes and maximum occupancies.
  • Enjoy the amenities of Snow Mountain- huge rec center (court games, skating, wall climbing and more), indoor Olympic sized pool, laundry vending, onsite ski rentals and more!  These amenities are a further walk from any cabins.  Typically, students will walk to pool and gym.  If colder weather or evenings, use of the group’s bus should be considered.  Snow Mountain Ranch has a shuttle van used on premises.  This van can transport about 10 persons at a time.  Call the front desk to request a shuttle during its normal operating hours.  Larger groups may not be able to have all their members shuttled due to van capacity and time constraints of authorized driver.
  • Although most groups choose cabins to save on meal costs, use the same Snow Mountain Ranch commissary for prepared meals if you desire.  Order through festival well ahead of time.
  • Local ski shuttle does not service Snow Mountain Ranch.  A group must have their own transportation to and from the Winter Park Resort.
  • Discounted bus driver lodging available within nearby lodge rooms for groups staying within cabins
  • Each cabin should have enough dining spaces to accommodate its sleeping capacity.  Each cabin will have dinnerware, flatware, drink ware, cups, and bowls for the number of persons it will accommodate.  Each cabin kitchen will have cookware, pots, pans, skillets, cooking utensils, and more for a group’s use.  The cabins will not contain any food products or coffee, except perhaps salt and pepper left behind from other groups.  Cabins will have a limited number of hand towels, hot pads and trash can liners in each cabin.  Groups are asked to bring paper towels, paper napkins, and extra trash liners for excessive trash needs.
  • Each kitchen has a refrigerator, stove top oven, microwave, coffee maker, sink disposal and dishwasher.  Some of the larger 7 & 8 bedroom cabins have two of these kitchen appliances.
  • Each Lodge room will have towels/wash cloths, bedding, hair dryers, and hand soap dispensers.  Shampoo and conditioner are not included and should be brought by every guest.  Maid service, fresh towels and changed bedding is not available each day.  Any group member can exchange their provided towels, and bed linens for fresh ones at the Snow Mountain Ranch laundry facilities (located next to pool center) anytime during its daily operating hours.
  • A group’s buses and motor coaches should be able to park right outside cabins for unloading and loading.  In the event of inclement weather, with enough snowfall to conceal the roadways, simply contact the Snow Mountain Ranch front desk to request a snowplow to clear the roadways for easy navigation.  The Snow Mountain Ranch road maintenance members are experienced with buses and motor coaches, and should be relied upon for whether Snow Mountain roadways can be safely accessed or not.  Typically, with use of their snow removal equipment, any bus or motor coach can get to and from every cabin.

Beaver Village Condos

  • Located near downtown Winter Park.  Walk into town, or ride the free ski shuttle to town or the Winter Park Resort.  At Beaver Village condos, there are 5 different cul-de-sacs condos are located within.  Typically, our music groups are assigned condos within the 3 upper, larger cul-de-sacs, further away from the main building and highway entrance.  Within each cul-de-sac, there is at least one ski shuttle pickup and drop off location (marked with a sign) that your members should gather at for a shuttle ride to the ski resort.  The shuttle bus will not pick up riders anywhere else within Beaver Village condos. except where marked with a sign.  Have your group members take a mental picture, or know which building #, or cul-de-sac their condo is located within, which is useful when being dropped off at the end of the day.
  • The ski shuttle service that picks up riders within Beaver Village Condos is a third party to the condos and resort.  They publish a schedule of travel times on their website.  This website will have a link at WPSMF Ski Locker for directors.  The shuttle service has many different routes.  Beaver Village is on the YELLOW route.  The yellow route will leave the resort at its scheduled times, pick up riders on the highway (down below the cul-de scas), go to town for a couple of stops, and come back through the Beaver Village cul-de-sacs before returning to the resort.   Have your members know this yellow route color when loading shuttles at the resort !  The shuttle service will run the yellow route at least once an hour (a specific time) on weekdays, and maybe twice an hour (specific times) on weekends.  * on the 2018 shuttle map and times page, it shows Buildings 5-9 as the only pickup location.  They told us they will be using each bus stop in all three of the upper cul-de sacs, not just the 5-9 cul-de-sac.  In 2018, for weekdays, they should come through Beavers Village five minutes before every hour, 7:55 am through 4:55 pm.  On weekends, 5 before the hour and 25 after the hour, 7:55 am, 8:25 am through 4:55 pm.  On the last shuttle of the day arriving at Beavers at 4:55 pm, the same shuttle bus leaves the resort at 4:45 pm!  After 4:45 pm, there will be no other shuttles dropping off skiers in the cul-de-sacs.  If a shuttle bus is desired more often than once a day, or after 4:55 PM, an rider can choose another color route, and have the driver drop them off at the entrance of Beaver Village condos, at the highway.  This pick-up or drop off location will require a short uphill hike to the upper cul-de-sacs.
  • Your members can also shuttle to the restaurants and shopping located in the town of Winter Park, or the grocery stores located in Fraser, just north of Winter Park.  After 4:55 pm, members would need to catch a shuttle at the shuttle stop across the highway from Beaver Village condo’s highway entrance.  Group members can also walk to town.
  • Most condos sleep at least 6 persons within 2 bedrooms and living area.  The 2 bedroom condos have 2 full baths, one bath is located in a bedroom, and the other in the hallway serving the remaining four guests.  Six persons are situated as follows: two persons in bedroom #1 with a king or queen bed.  At least two persons in bedroom #2 with a queen bed, or twin beds, or bunk beds, or some combination.  Two persons on the living room pull out sofa.  There may be instances when the festival will assign more than six persons to a 2 bedroom condo.  If so, Beavers will provide a condo with its bedroom #2 having more than 2 sleeping spaces, like a twin bed and a set of bunk beds for example.
  • Occasionally, if needed, Beaver Village will have to provide a smaller 1 bedroom, or larger 3 bedroom, or even a 4 bedroom condo to keep a group within closer proximity to group’s other condos, or because of 2 bedroom condo inventories.  Any type of condo, whether 1,2, 3, 4 bedrooms will be indicated within a group’s Trip Info report, and with the rooming list assignments, both within WPSMF Online.
  • $38 empty bed space charge per space per night applies for condos filled less than maximum occupancy, except for one male student and one female student condo.
  • Full kitchens in each condo unit for own meal preparation.  This is a refrigerator, dishwasher, 4 burner cook top oven, coffee maker and microwave. Each cabin kitchen will have cookware, pots, pans, skillets, cooking utensils, and more for a group’s use.  If your group is planning to cook within one condo, for many persons in several condos, chances are the condo’s pots, pans, and skillets will not be large enough.  In other words, there will most likely not be a 5 gallon cooking pot in a 2 bedroom condo that sleeps 6 persons.  The condos will not contain any food products or coffee, except items such as perhaps salt and pepper left behind from other groups.
  • Each condo should have enough dining spaces to accommodate its sleeping capacity.
  • Each condo will have dinnerware, flatware, drink ware, cups, and bowls for the number of persons it will accommodate.  Condos will have a limited number of hand towels, hot pads and trash can liners.  Groups are asked to bring paper towels, paper napkins, and extra trash liners for excessive trash needs.
  • Each condo have towels/wash cloths, toilet paper, bedding, and hand soap.  Shampoo and conditioner may be provided, but suggested to be brought by every guest.  Maid service, fresh towels and changed bedding is not available each day.   If needed, any group member, or a condo can exchange their provided towels, and bed linens for fresh ones at the front desk during its daily operating hours.
  • Gas fireplaces and Wi-Fi are in each condo.
  • The Beaver Village main building offers an indoor pool, three hot tubs, sauna, laundry vending, and even movies to rent.  The main building has a meeting space, but is only available for use through a paid reservation.  Your group members can walk to the main building, and to other cul-de-sacs using the vehicle roads, or walking paths.  These lighted walking paths may be snow covered after significant snowfall.  The pool area closes at 9:30 pm, 30 minutes before the front desk closes at 10:00 pm.  https://staywinterpark.com/beaver-village/clubhouse/

  • For groups staying at the Vintage, and do not have their own transportation to the Awards Ceremony/Street Dance, the group should either plan to travel to the resort’s main shuttle depot at the base via the Cabriolet Lift (before it closes at 6:00 pm), and then ride any shuttle route stopping in the town of Winter Park at Cooper Creek Square.
