Cheap getaway: Winterfest at 49 Degrees a free-heel bargain

WINTER SPORTS -- Nordic skiers and snowshoers should check out the lineup of events and activities for Winterfest, sponsored by Mountain Gear, Jan. 7-8 at 49 Degrees North.

This is a screaming deal:  Free demos, free mini lessons and free trail passes.

Plus, tons of fun from ski races to paintball biathlon.

 Enjoy the moonlight ski and snowshoe tours, and then say overnight on the mountain -- bring a sleeping bag and stay for just $15 at the Learning Center. 

"It’s fun and cheap," said 49 Degrees Nordic guru Doug Elledge, in a classic bit of understatement.
