Winthrop's annual Balloon Festival is coming up March 1-3. This is an incredible photographic event. Get up close with the balloons at launch time and then watch as the float over the snow-covered peaks of the Methow Valley. Don't miss this event and everything else there is to do in Winthrop. More information on the festival can be found here.
At Winthrop's annual Groundhog Day celebration, Wilbur our Winthrop Whistlepig declared an early spring. Will his prediction be correct? Plenty of great snow remains on the ground and skiers, snowmobilers and winter enthusiasts are having a great time. "Weather" winter or spring we do know that Winthrop has it all.
