CORNER BROOK  Western Newfoundland will showcase the variety of fun winter adventures and evening experiences that it has to offer when the fourth annual Snow West winter festival begins on Friday.

Snow West 2014 is being co-ordinated by Go Western Newfoundland, western Newfoundland’s Destination Management Organization, in partnership with the Department of Tourism, Culture and Recreation and the region’s winter tourism industry.

According to a press release from Go Western, this year’s event builds on the successes of the initial three-year season extension pilot project by expanding across the entire region this year.

That’s something tourism industry partners like.

 “It has expanded to cover the entire west coast and has become a strong attraction for bringing visitors to the region to enjoy everything winter has to offer,” said Ed English, owner, Linkum Tours, in the press release.

The 10-day festival, which ends on Feb. 9, will feature events throughout the western region, including in Port aux Basques, Corner Brook, Deer Lake, Gros Morne National Park and around the Northern Peninsula.

Outdoor events include downhill skiing and snowboarding, skating, ice sculpting demonstrations, cross-country and backcountry skiing, horse drawn sleigh rides, zip lining, snowmobiling, snowshoeing and fishing derbies

An exciting lineup of evening entertainment includes live music, casual and fine dining options, appearances by Food Network celebrity chef Brad Long and a comedy night featuring Amy House.
