Winterfest: Jan. 16, Mt. Spokane State Park

By Trevor Finchamp

After a two-year hibernation, Spokane Nordic Ski Association’s cross-country skiing celebration, Winterfest, is finally returning to the Mount Spokane State Park Nordic Ski Area on Sunday, January 16, 2022.

This annual event is the only day all year that Spokane Nordic offers its cross-country ski lessons to non-members, so it’s a great opportunity for new skiers to get a taste of what SNSA has to offer while learning a few of the basics. 45-minute lessons for kids and adults are only $10 and a 2-hour skijoring clinic is available for $25.

The event’s title sponsor, Rambleraven Gear Trader, will be on-site offering free waxing to all participants. There will also be a treasure hunt that encourages kids and families to get out on the trails on their own.
