The Sawtooth Society is excited to host several winter events in the Sawtooth NRA. This is an opportunity for recreationists to enjoy the area year-round and get to know the winter side of the Sawtooth NRA.
“The Sawtooth Society is delighted to take part in winter activities and capture the attention of new people to love the Sawtooth NRA year-round,” said Sawtooth Society’s Membership and Volunteer Coordinator Kelly Conde. “Come up to Stanley for two great winter celebrations and learn more about the Sawtooth Society while discovering how enjoyable winter can be in the Sawtooth Valley.”
On Saturday, Feb. 21, the Sawtooth Society will host the first Winterfest 40 Fat Bike Race in Stanley as part of the 6th Annual Stanley Winterfest.
