The inaugural Ferry County Rail Trail Ski Day last Saturday January 15 was quite a success thanks to all who came out and got moving despite somewhat foggy, January weather. At least 70 attended, ranging in age from 2 years old to 80 years young!

Whole families who had never skied or snowshoed before participated and ended up loving it!
