Snow Brought Good Turnout to Winter Games

Organizers of the 20th Annual Badger State Winter Games say this season's snow and seasonal temperatures fueled participation that hasn't been matched in years.

The games' marketing director says more people registered for snowshoe racing and the quadrathon events onsite this year.

The three biggest events this year were Nordic skiing, figure skating and hockey.

The games' skiing and snowboarding commissioner says getting snow every few days gets people thinking about skiing and gets them to come out.

The games were in Central Wisconsin during the last two weekends.
