Hike to the summit of Mount Spokane and enjoy breathtaking, 360-degree views of the region as your reward, along with an ice beverage to cool you off after all that physical exertion on a hot day. For the first time ever, staff at Mt. Spokane Ski & Snowboard Park are offering a pop-up bar at the historic Vista House every Saturday afternoon in August. The rock-walled structure, listed on the Spokane and the National Register of Historic Places, was completed in 1933 and is accessible from summit trails and by car, but whichever transport mode you take, don’t forget your Discover Pass. During the event’s kickoff this weekend, featured brews are No-Li Brewhouse’s Threezy Does It, a low-calorie hazy IPA, and its Day Fade huckleberry lemonade seltzer (PSA: Huckleberries are ripe now all over the mountain, so bring your buckets!). Sixteen-ounce pours of either are $6, and other options include $6 microbrew cans, $5 canned domestics, plus water, soda, Gatorade and light snacks.
