Skiing! We have have been having an incredible ski season Click here for the most recent grooming report. January is almost gone so here is the line up of snowy events for february. Start out the month with a 15km and 30km classic Ski Derby Race race at Sun Mountain on the 6th. On the 13th try a new sport “Try Biathlon” MVB Team shares details on equipment, history, training and safety of the sport before participants take turns shooting at targets and skiing a short and easy biathlon course. Open to ages 9 and older, no previous experience in biathlon required. “Tour of the Methow” is also on the 13th, celebrate skiing with a tour of the wonderful trails of the Methow Valley! Choose your trails and your distance: 20K, 20K, 50K or 80K and a 10K for kids. Round off the the weekend on the 14th with my favorite event the “Doggy Dash”, this event will entertain you whether you participate in it or just come to watch, a must do or see in my opinion.
Its not all outdoor experiences, while your here there are plenty of things to do indoors. Every other Tuesday we have “Movie Night” at the confluence Gallery starting on the 5th. The Confluence gallery also has a new Art exhibit “Shadows and Light” opening 1/16 – 1/27th, I went to see this twice and loved it. Enjoy Live music every weekend at the local Pubs. We also have many local Art Galleries to visit and tasting rooms to try a new wine, cider, beer or coffee. Check back for Februarys schedule.
