Wyman Museum office manager Nicky Boulger recently watched a television special that featured Winter Festival at the museum, parts of Craig and extreme snowmobiling.
Boulger said time flies when you're having fun.
"The show was 30 minutes and when it was over, I was like, 'There's no more?' It went really quick," she said.
BAM Film Productions, a production company for the motorsports industry, filmed the production last year.
The 30-minute show, "Power-
Sports Adventures—Craig, Colo.," is being shown throughout January on Altitude TV, a regional cable sports outlet with worldwide reach.
"I thought it turned out great," Boulger said. "If you're someone who really likes winter activities, snowmachining, being outdoors and having nice places to go … I thought they did a really nice job of showing that."
Teresa Stoffle, a Craig resident and co-owner of Xtreme Mountain Racing, was instrumental in the show's creation.
For nearly three years, Stoffle said she hounded BAM Film Productions to get a film crew to Craig.
Stoffle, who has also seen the program, said it presents a fair representation of Craig and its people.
"I was satisfied," she said. "It was really good."
Stoffle was out of town during the show's first airing, but she captured it on her digital recorder.
"We had been in Utah (snowmobile) racing, but as soon as we got home we sat down and watched it quickly to see how it represented Craig and everything," she said. "And, I've watched it probably seven or eight times now just to really sit down and watch it, to see who was riding in it and who was there."
The show features powder riding on Black Mountain. Stoffle said the segment was filmed with local riders including her husband Michael Stoffle, son A.J. Stoffle, Jack Reed, Kelton Willbanks and more.
Willbanks said he has seen the show and was pleased by the results, with one minor catch.
"It's weird seeing yourself on TV," he said. "You don't think you're goofy until you've seen yourself on TV."
The show airs at 2 p.m. today, 5:30 p.m. Wednesday and 11:30 a.m. Saturday on Altitude TV.
