Earlier this week, the top of Mt. Spokane was sparkling and white in the morning sun, a dusting of fresh powder shining atop the peak like a beacon of winter. Whether you can’t wait to strap on your skis, board or snowshoes, this weekend’s annual Snowlander Expo has broad appeal for all types of snow sporters. The usual regional retailers and resorts will all be on site offering discounts on gear, season passes and more, but if you could care less about snow on the slopes, don’t forget about PowderKeg. A diverse lineup of local and regional breweries are pouring their best seasonal offerings, so warm up from the inside with a winter warmer or two and then head outside to catch the second annual Rail Jam in the Convention Center atrium, on Saturday only.
