Big Snow Dance

Our Big Snow Dance is back this Saturday night and we’d love to see you and your friends come out for our signature fundrasing event. This year we’ve partnered with the Backcountry Ball uniting these two great parties into one big throwdown.

Doors open at 7pm at Olympian Hall and we have a solid line up of auction items, food, beverages and a DJ to help us dance the night away. Your $20 entry fee includes beer, wine, and nibbles until they run out, so get there early! We even have dance lessons this year, with Kristen Jespersen and Stephanie Kohlhardt! 7:45 sharp!

As always, we’ve got some great auction items donated, including a Jackson Kayak, a Bridgestone Winter Driving School Course, a Big Agnes sleeping bag, a powder day with Steamboat Powdercats, snow tires, Moots winter cycling gear, guided fly fishing with Spinner Fall, gobs of Honey Stinger goodies, beef from Rockin’ J Cattle, a Strawberry Park Hotsprings pass, INCREDIBLE artwork and photography along with many other items for you to bid on. And this year, we also have Respect The Yampa coozies and scenic calendars for sale. Just in time for holiday gift giving!

We will also be selling our Friends of the Yampa limited edition photo calendar at this year’s event. Finally, if you have any auction items you’d like to donate, please connect with Holley Gardel, our board member who is coordinating our donations.

CONGO: The Grand Inga Project

Friends of the Yampa presents CONGO at the Bud Werner Memorial Library. Tuesday October 30 at 7:30pm. The movie is free, but a small donation is requested.

If you haven’t seen it already, its a must watch as it documents an expedition in Africa into one of the largest rapids in the world. The videography and story are outstanding. See trailer below:
