Kewaunee Winter Park Closes for Season

Winter Park in Kewaunee County is ending its 2017-18 season with the highest attendance the park has on record, welcoming 11,073 visitors for snow tubing, skiing and snowboarding during the nine weeks that it was open to the public. The Kewaunee County Promotion & Recreation Department reports 10,004 people spent time snow tubing at the park and 1,069 winter recreation enthusiasts went skiing and snowboarding from Dec. 23 to Feb. 24. “This was our first season with the Magic Carpet in operation on our snow tubing hill and it was a big draw as well as a huge success,” said Dave Myers, Kewaunee County Promotion & Recreation Director. “We were able to get tubers up the hill at a much more efficient pace and I’m excited to see the attendance that next season brings, once more people know what we have to offer for winter recreation in Kewaunee County.” The park had hosted visitors from more than 19 states. The next best season for attendance at Winter Park was the 2013-14 season when 9,981 guests came to the park for snow tubing and 977 visitors took to the hills for skiing and snowboarding.
