Hot Air Balloon during Winter Carnival at Eagle Ridge Resort and Spa

As a frozen turkey skids and bounces across an icy lane, careening into an array of bowling pins, it's not a hallucination. It's the 2018 Winter Carnival at Eagle Ridge Resort and Spa. For 2018's President's Day weekend Friday, Feb. 16 through Monday, Feb. 19, the resort's winter celebration will feature much more than turkey bowling. Guests will enjoy all types of indoor and outdoor winter activities, from cozy bonfires to sledding and ice skating.

Guests at the Winter Carnival can experience all the cold-weather activities Eagle Ridge has to offer, such as snowshoeing and cross country skiing through seven miles of groomed trails, sledding, and ice skating on the 1.5-acre Eagle Ridge pond. The resort will also feature special activities for the weekend, including:

  • Two Fire and Ice Winter Glow shows on Friday and Saturday night on the resort's Marina. Guests can enjoy a cozy bonfire while they watch glowing hot air balloons, magically lighting the night sky. Shows start at dusk.
  • Broomball: Eagle Ridge provides all the necessary equipment for a fun and rousing competition.
  • Ice turkey bowling at the Pool Patio
  • Snow art for kids and families.
  • Putt Putt Ice and Snow Golf
  • Jim Beam Sponsored Ice Bar, serving up drinks and hot chili
  • Cozy Valentine Gazebo, with romantic views and plenty of warm furs to snuggle into.

In addition to the on-site activities, Eagle Ridge Resort & Spa is located just 15 minutes from one of Illinois' top downhill ski and snowboarding areas.

When it's time to head inside from the cold, there are still plenty of opportunities for fun. Everyone can play indoors with activities like giant chess and checkers, ping pong, arts and crafts, bag toss games, or swimming time in the heated indoor pool. Guests can also relax at the luxurious Stonedrift Spa and at Eagle Ridge Resort & Spa's award-winning restaurants.
