NW Ski Season Has Begun

By Paige Browning

Those dancing to the snow-gods this month will receive their reward this week in the Spokane area.

Sunny days on Mt. Spokane. Taken 12-08-2012 by Paige Browning.49º North has already opened for the season, with opening day last Sunday. Lookout Pass Ski Area in Idaho made Thursday their opening day for skiers and snowboarders. 

Saturday the two other nearby mountains, Mt. Spokane and Schweitzer, answer winter’s call with opening day. Schweitzer Mountain Resort opens at 9:00 a.m. this Saturday and Sunday. Mt. Spokane also opens at 9:00 a.m. this weekend. Mt. Spokane staff say this is the first time they’ve opened before Thanksgiving in recent memory.

Moutains everywhere will be bare, but have enough snow to get down the mountain.
