Snowmaking at Elver Park

Snowmaking is taking shape at Elver Park to provide a guaranteed venue for lessons, racing and outdoor winter recreation.

Snowmaking at the west-side park has begun in early December. The goal is to create a 1.5-kilometer loop of manmade snow running from the shelter building past the sledding hill and around the soccer fields. The trail would be open to anyone holding a valid Madison/Dane County parks ski pass, which costs adults $7 a day or $30 a year.
