Your flat fee for only cropping with us is $250 (or $300 if paying after Aug 31), this is regardless of the length of time you will stay. Thursday noon through Monday 11:00 am is open and available to you for that one price. It includes your cropping, goodies and meals (Fri dinner; Saturday breakfast; Saturday lunch and Sunday breakfast) all of the benefits the other guests at Winterfest enjoy with the exception of any hotel privileges.
When making your selection it is understood that you will not be staying at night, please consider it only for the days that you are arriving and leaving.
3nights arriving on Thursday would simply state that you plan to arrive on Thursday and plan to head home on Sunday. This is important for us to know when to be on the lookout for you. In the event you might be traveling in inclement weather, we do keep an eye out for when you are expected.
