Is your back breaking from shoveling snow? Have you raked so much snow off your roof that your arms feel like they are falling off? Have you plowed so much snow that there is nowhere else to put it, and the berms are even taller than your car? Have the ice dams backed up until the water is pouring in through your roof? Did the below-zero temperature on Wednesday of this week chill you to your bones? Have you been cooped up indoors for entirely too long? Are you a little tired of winter? Are you feeling a little restless? Has cabin fever set in?

While not officially a Winterfest event, you can escape the confines of your snow den starting Friday night in the Pagosa Springs High School gymnasium. Show up to show some support for the Pagosa Pirates as they take on the Alamosa Mean Moose, with varsity action beginning at 5:30 p.m.
