PRE-SEASON PARTY

Our 3rd annual party was a big success!  It was really fun to see everyone and get exctied for the upcoming ski season. The buffet was excellent, followed by the prize giveaways.

.....And we sure had great prizes! 

Generous donations from Alpine Haus ($25 gift card & $160 in services), Mountain Gear (3 - three day rentals), Sports Creel (Boot & glove warmer) , wine, candles, coffee cards, hand warmers, handmade boot horns, ski socks and more gifts donated by members made it extra special!

"The Mt. Spokane Ski Prime Timers are all about having FUN! Anyone 55 and older who enjoys Alpine and X-Country skiing can join.

The prime timers start Skiing the first Wednesday in January and then every Wednesday thereafter until the mountain closes. Their informal social gathering with refreshments at the end of the ski day is held in the balcony above the bar where they enjoy each other's company and share ski experiences."

10-21-18 afternoon update. I have it on good authority that a) load test on chair 6 will be on 11-10-18 b) ski school building will be ready for this season c) the building will serve the ski school and facilities (equipment, signage, etc in basement) d) magic carpet will be up and running for this season. It'll run from the end of ditch (right of that truck) to the orange post in the pic and is roughly inline with uphill side of lodge 2. e) there will be a temporary fence along the retaining wall with a permanent one being installed next year. Sorry, it's not a terrain park feature. f) road to top of mtn was and is closed for the season. Enjoy! 🎿
