There are several events for all ages and interests from snowshoe/running races to fat bike races; snow sculpting activities to snow sculpture viewing; snow kite demos to luge demos, and so much more. Saturday presents an evening of dancing, awards and style at the Snow Ball. Childcare for the Snow Ball will be offered at the Dreamchasers facility from 6:30 pm - 9:30 pm for children ages 2 - 11. The cost is $5 per hour/per child, and a multi-child discount will be offered for families of 2 or more at $4 per hour/per child. Dinner will not be provided so please feed your child(ren) prior to dropping them off. Snacks and drinks are welcome if the snacks do not make an excessive mess and the drink has some sort of lid.

WEEKLY FITNESS TIP
This excerpt was taken from the December 2012 issue of Dreamchasers National Newsletter and was written by Julie Bryan
You can bike and run all winter long in Teton Valley. The sport of "snow biking" is growing in participation quickly!
Snow Bikes or "Fat Bikes" are defined as bikes with 3.7 inch or wider tires, the purpose of which is floatation on soft surfaces. The bikes work well on snow machine trails or in groomed cross country skiing areas, on the same track where you see skate skiing. Just make sure it is okay to ride on the skate track first! Most riders use regular or "flat" pedals so that they can use a warmer boot rather than biking shoes. Running is amazing in those same areas as well. You may elect to wear snowshoes or Yaktrax. In areas with a compressed snow trail where you have little fear of sinking, a running shoe with a soft and aggressive tread may be all you need. Check out our store for a wide selection of great running shoes, snowshoes and Yaktrax.
RECIPE OF THE WEEK
This week's recipe is brought to you by Cosmic Apple Gardens, a certified organic farm located in the heart of Teton Valley, Idaho. Cosmic Apple Gardens offers a community supported agriculture program. For additional information visit the Cosmic Apple Gardens website at:
Mexican Carrot Chile Cilantro Soup
4 -5 carrots, washed and sliced
1 large potato, peeled and chopped
1 large onion, chopped
1 chili pepper, de-seeded and minced
3-4 cloves crushed garlic
1-2 tablespoons olive oil
5-6 cups chicken or vegetable stock
salt, black pepper and a few dashes of cumin, to taste
1/2 bunch cilantro, washed and chopped
In a large pot over medium heat, saute the onion, garlic, chile, potato and carrot in the olive oil til tender. Add half the cilantro, seasonings, and stir. Saute another 5-6 minutes, then add the stock, heat to boiling, reduce to a simmer, cover and cook 45 minutes.
Remove from heat to allow to cool a bit. In a food processor or blender in batches, or with a hand blender right in the pot, puree the soup til smooth and creamy. You may add up to a cup of milk during this process, if you like.
Taste and adjust seasonings, return to heat and cook, stirring, til heated through, but not boiling. Garnish with cilantro to serve.
