No natural disasters affected the celebration of Mardi Gras in Northwest Colorado this year.

The Craig Puck Ewes women’s hockey team is hosting the fourth annual Mardi Gras hockey tournament Friday through Sunday at the Loudy-Simpson Ice Arena.

Eight teams and more than 120 hockey players will be in town for the event.

Teams from Durango, Tel-luride, Crested Butte, Steamboat Springs and Denver are scheduled to play.

The Denver Women’s Hockey League’s Spitfires are returning to defend their title.

On Friday and Saturday, the teams will compete in pool play with the semifinals and finals on Sunday.

The hometown favorites open with a game at 6:30 p.m. Friday against the Durango Fury.

The Puck Ewes are 7-1 in league play going into the tournament.

Throughout the weekend, there will be silent auctions for hockey memorabilia.

The championship game is scheduled for 9:15 a.m Sunday. Attendance to the event is free.
