Jackson Hole Winterfest: Celebrate a Winter Playground

Ever raced a snowmobile? There’s an opportunity to take part this weekend in Jackson Hole, Wyoming.

The races begin at 9 a.m. Saturday, February 14 and Sunday, February 15 as part of the 5th Annual Jackson Hole Winterfest. Racers will battle it out on a high-flying snowcross track. There’s also an 1/8 mile oval NASCAR-style track where racers test their courage on vintage snowmobiles.

Also on our radar—the Rifle Ice Shoot at the Range. Participants shoot blocks of ice that are 25 to 100 yards away. Murphy says it’s especially fun since those taking part will only find out the secret location once they RSVP.

Snow King Vertfest is another big draw of this festival. Held at Snow King Mountain, it’s known as the premier backcountry ski and ride event in the country. Held from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Saturday, February 21, there will be a variety of activities, clinics, competitions, and plenty of beer.

“It’s a great time of year to come out. We have some of the best snow in the country,” said Maureen Murphy, director of special events for the Jackson Hole Chamber of Commerce. Winterfest events are staggered over 10 days from Friday, February 13 to Sunday, February 22. Check out the full schedule of events here.

One caveat—the popular Cutter Races featuring horse-drawn chariots, and the Ski Jouring events have been canceled this year due to track conditions.

Chelsea vs Everton live stream: How to watch for free
The Manual examines the United States men's soccer team as it stands on the brink of earning a ticket to the World Cup in Qatar this summer.

Chelsea vs Everton will be a delight to neutrals and fans of the respective teams alike. Chelsea will be keen to gain their fourth win in a row, but that doesn't mean Everton won't want to shake things up. If you're looking for a free Chelsea vs Everton live stream to catch up on all the action, you're in luck. Here's how to watch the game without paying a thing.
Free Chelsea vs Everton live stream
Chelsea vs Everton is streaming on USA Network when it kicks off at 1.30 pm ET. The channel is available through a lot of different sports streaming services, but we recommend using FuboTV. That's because there's a FuboTV free trial so you can check out the Chelsea vs Everton live stream for free. The trial only lasts seven days, but that's plenty of time to check out other channels on the service with over 115 available covering news, entertainment, and sport. Channels such as ESPN, Disney Channel, and CNN will keep you interested, among many others. FuboTV costs $65 for the basic plan with upgrades also available including premium channels as add-ons. It's a great option for cord-cutters and is sure to appeal to you for far longer than simply watching today's game.

If you happen to be traveling abroad while still keen to watch Chelsea vs Everton, you may find that FuboTV doesn't travel with you. It's frustrating when you can't access a service you're paying for (or using the time-limited free trial), but there is a way around this. Sign up to NordVPN and you can 'trick' your connection into thinking you're still back home, thereby allowing you to access FuboTV and watch the match. All you need to do is open the app and choose a US-based server. From there, NordVPN makes it look like your home allowing you to access your streaming services. It also enhances your security so it's ideal for when dealing with public Wi-Fi or hotel Wi-Fi that may be unsafe compared to your home network. There's a NordVPN free trial too to help you check it out risk-free for the first 30 days.
