Parks and Wildlife invites public to Ski and Skate
Colorado Parks and Wildlife invites the public to Yampa River State Park's 8th annual Ski and Skate at 2 p.m. Saturday at the park's visitors center at 6185 West U.S. Highway 40.
Participants can pick between a cross-country trek on the groomed ski trails, an afternoon of ice skating on the park's pond or both.
The ski trail will be lit up at night once the sun sets, and people can enjoy some winter fun by the light of the moon and the light of neon-colored glow sticks. After the activities, there will be a campfire along with free hot chocolate and hot dogs provided by Yampa River State Park.
In addition, the Craig Chamber Ambassadors will hold their annual Chili Cook-off at the park beginning at 4:30 p.m. For more information about the cook-off, call Shannon at the Craig Chamber of Commerce at 970-824-5689.
