Results from WinterFest Contests
Bill Hudson | 2/13/08
The Pagosa Springs Chamber of Commerce staff were biting their nails last week, wondering if we had suffered "too much winter" to make the annual WinterFest celebration possible to stage successfully.  Some events were canceled due to an overabundance of snow — including the popular SnoCross snowmobile races — and some events were "on-again, off-again" as the snow removal effort progressed throughout the community.  As Friday arrived, however, the weather remained sunny and reasonably temperate, and several events pulled decent crowds.  (Many spectators and participants were suffering from "over-shoveling" ailments, no doubt.) 

Here are some results from Saturday and Sunday events:
