Ponyville's residents, participating in the Winter Wrap Up.

Winter Wrap Up is an annual event in Ponyville that involves clearing winter and bringing in spring.

In Canterlot, magic is used to end winter. However, because Ponyville was founded by Earth ponies, they change the seasons from winter to spring without using magic. Even after unicorns started settling there, the tradition was continued.

All ponies are assigned to one of three teams: weather, plants, or animals.


Weather Team

Weather Team S1E11

The Weather Team.

Leader: Rainbow Dash
Jacket: Blue

Composed mostly of Pegasi, the weather team clears the sky of clouds and lets the sun warm up the land. Assigned ponies depart to retrieve the birds that have flown south for the winter. Several Earth ponies, Pinkie Pie being one of them, are assigned as lake scorers, who cut the ice as they ice skate on it, making it easier to break and to melt when the sun comes out.

Plant Team

The Plant Team.

Leader: Applejack
Jacket: Green

Earth ponies from the plant team ensure that Ponyville will have enough food during the year. They move snow off the fields, plow them, and plant and water the seeds. While the team vests are introduced, Shoeshine is seen wearing a team leader's vest, although earlier Applejack is shown as team leader. Spike and Mayor Mare can also be seen helping out the plant team.

Animal Team

Leader: Amethyst Star
Jacket: Tan

The animal team mostly consists of unicorns, but ponies from other races, most notably Fluttershy, are seen on the team. The team wakes up hibernating animals, cleans up their dens, and ensures that they have food to eat. Rarity was put in charge of nest-making for the returning birds.

Leader: Mayor Mare / Twilight Sparkle

In the namesake episode, the traditional methods had failed for the past few years for unspecified reasons. Arguments arose and inevitable mistakes turned into major problems due to a lack of planning and coordination. Twilight Sparkle lent her skills to the effort, helping Ponyville bring spring in on time, earning the title of All Team Organizer, and a special jacket comprising of the colors of each team.
