Vega boat ramps close Monday


Vega boat ramps closing early

Because of receding water conditions, all boat ramps at Vega State Park will be closed Monday.

This is one month earlier than originally scheduled. Hand launching of watercraft will be allowed until the reservoir freezes. It is advised that boaters call the park, 970-487-3407, for the current status of the boat ramps prior to coming, because water fluctuation may require closure before Oct. 1.



10K trail run on Color Weekend


After a one-year hiatus, the Powderhorn Racing Club is bringing back the Thigunawat 10K Trail Run and adding a 3K Team Adventure Run and Kid’s Obstacle Fun Run, as part of Color Weekend events this weekend at Powderhorn Mountain Resort. The races take place Sunday.

The 3K is an untimed event involving teams on a course with natural and man-made obstacles. It’s slated to start at noon, and the cost to run is $25 per person for teams of one to four people and $20 per person for teams with five or more members.

The obstacle fun run for kids 12 and under is free and will follow the conclusion of the 3K.

Runners can register on site before the race. For more information, go to or call 970-245-3788. Proceeds from the race benefit the racing club and the Western Slope Center for Children.
