Sure, we got an early blast of the white stuff in September this year, but now it’s time for Mother Nature to really let it fly so we can hit the slopes in a couple weeks. The Inlander’s annual Winter Party and Snowlander Expo is a perfect opportunity to celebrate with like-minded mountain folk — while getting some screaming deals on equipment, lift passes and more. The first 1,500 attendees each day get a lift ticket to either 49 Degrees or Mt. Spokane, the PowderKeg brew festival inside boasts 10 breweries and cideries pouring, and there’s great music from BaLonely, Blake Braley and more. And all of it is housed in a new location this year in the Spokane Convention Center’s Exhibition Halls.
Fri, Nov. 15 from 4-9 pm and Sat, Nov. 16 from 10 am-7 pm • $10 • All ages • Spokane Convention Center • 334 W. Spokane Falls Blvd. • snowlanderexpo.com
