Have Some Snow-Filled Fun at Stanley Winterfest 

Saturday, Feb. 11-Sunday, Feb. 12

What has the winter of 2012 been missing? Well, winter for one. If your inner snow bunny is in need of a deep freeze fix, hit Highway 21 and head toward the Sawtooths on Saturday, Feb. 11, and/or Sunday, Feb. 12.

A couple of hours into the drive, the snowless terrain of the City of Trees will give way to snow-covered reminders that winter does exist. The snow-laden winter wonderland is a perfect setting for the city of Stanley, which so often hibernates in the cold months, to host its third-annual Winterfest.

The 2012 edition will include a crazy quilt of old- and new-school events, including the Smith Sunglasses Big Air Competition at Airport Hill, just outside of town. Amateur bruisers will face off in an under-the-lights pond hockey tournament, and men will borrow their favorite women's attire and strap on snowshoes for a hilarious drag race.

Learn all about curling with a demonstration and competition at the Stanley Ice Rink, then shake your slightly frozen rear-end at the street dance. Of course, no winterfest is complete without blazing down a trail on a snowmobile, and there are tons of chidren's activities to keep the youngins occupied. So load up the family, dust off the snow gear, and take a mini road trip to the Stanley Winterfest.
