The day will start with a 5K foot race around the area (registration is at 8:30 a.m.); visitors are also encouraged to bring their own snowshoes, skis, hiking boots and bikes for a day of guided trail hikes and mild-temperature fun. In addition, the Buena Vista Snowmobile Club will run tours, and local experts will be on hand to give ice-fishing pointers. A poker run will be part of the day’s festivities, with cards being given out at each activity and a chance to win prizes in the evening.
There is a fee for select activities, and equipment and bicycles will be available to rent if needed. For lodging discounts and other information, call 719-395-6612 or go to buenavistacolorado.org. Banana Belt Days will be back on February 22 and again on March 15.
