All this in One Winterfest Weekend!

Winterfest 1999 ended on a strong note last weekend with three major events taking place at the same time on Saturday.
Some 85 snowmobilers raced their machines in a Rocky Mountain Snocross circuit event Saturday and Sunday.
And, on Saturday nearly 100 cross-country skiers entered the annual O.S.C.R. Nordic Ski Race.
And local mushers Bill Gallea and Cindy Ogden took first and second respectively in the 100-mile Seeley-Monture overnight sled dog race.
Here, we only have room for a few photos of an action-packed weekend.
