Sundance, Wyoming. Population 1,1882. A stop for many I-90 motorists between Gillette and Spearfish. A popular hangout for bikers heading to Sturgis. And, one of Wyoming's best winter towns?

We think so.

Downtown Sundance shuts down for a weekend in February for their annual Winter Festival. Competition is one of many intriguing things about the festival. Events range from nordic ski races to electric bar stool races and ski-jouring.

For those of you like me and wondering what in the world ski-jouring is, it's when a person on skis is pulled behind a horse.

February 17th will begin the 4th annual Sundance Winter Festival in 2018.
