Master of the slopes or wobbly newcomer, Winterfest offers something for every skier, skijorer or donut enthusiast. Bring your family and friends to this fourth annual Spokane Nordic celebration, which offers $5 ski lessons for all levels, free demos, and clinics for waxing and skijoring; the latter activity gets your favorite furry friend to do some of the work. Don’t miss the Donut Dash two-person relay sprint, with “lighthearted” and “competitive” options as you compete for the coveted, Texas-sized donut prize. Half-price cross-country ski rentals and family-friendly activities make this a great day to make your way to Mt. Spokane.
Sun, Jan. 15, from 9 am-3 pm • $5/lesson • Mt. Spokane Cross-Country Ski Park • 26107 N. Mt. Spokane Park Dr., Mead • spokanenordic.org/winterfest
