The Estes Park Winter Festival is coming to town January 15 through 18. In a nutshell, here’s what to expect: local wine and beer tastings, a chili cook-off, live music, the EarthFest celebration with guest speakers and vendors, demoing snowshoes for free at Winter Trails Day on Saturday, tours at the Estes Park Observatory, a snowman making contest, a scavenger hunt for the prize elk, horse and carriage rides, private photo tours and special swimming pool fun and spa promotions. All in all a fun weekend in the mountains!
A few years ago, Apryle and I volunteered with the Chamber of Commerce to help promote Winter Trails Day in Estes Park, which is an annual event aimed at helping people learn about and experience snowshoeing. This year, I’ll be working at Winter Trails as an employee from REI Boulder. Apryle, who designed the nifty event website, will be volunteering at the registration booth as well. Come up around 10am on Saturday to the Glacier Basin trailhead and we’ll set you up with a pair of snowshoes to explore the National Park.
See you this weekend!
