In the summertime, tourists pour into the mountain town of Stanley by the thousands, but once the cold hits, Stanley's population drops below 100. Only the hardiest folks withstand the bitter winters in the snowy Sawtooths.

The sixth annual Stanley WinterFest attracts those who are not afraid of the frigid for a weekend of partying. The event kicks off on Friday evening with a Glow in the Dark Beach Party at the Stanley Club. Saturday's events include a fat-tire bike race, a "Howling Wolf Raft Ride," a cross-dress foot race run in snowshoes, an outhouse race and live music. The fest finishes up on Sunday with a triathlon in which costumes are "highly recommended," a ski clinic and a movie day at the Stanley Library.
