dining options in the area

Weekend and Saturday badges have sold out. Sunday badges are still available.

The Black Bear Inn and Conference Center will have food on site for SnowCon attendees. These will include a variety of snack foods and beverages available all day and a special menu for mealtimes.

SnowCon attendees must abide by the site rules, which stipulate that no outside food or drink may be consumed in the convention areas. Attendees are welcome to bring refillable water bottles.

There are many, many dining options close by, and there are scheduled breaks for lunch and dinner, so attendees have time to leave the site if they wish.
