Mt. Spokane and Silver Mountain ski resorts have announced this Friday, Dec. 7th will be opening day. They'll join Schweitzer Mountain, 49 Degrees North, and Lookout Pass, which have all opened for the season over the past two weeks.
The forecast calls for up to a foot of additional snow in the coming days, which should make for some terrific conditions this weekend, no matter which resort you choose. Here's a look at some of the early deals and highlights at each of our local resorts.
Lookout Pass has free ski lessons for kids ages 6 to 17 starting Jan. 12th. The deal is limited to the first 500 kids who register, so don't delay.
Mt. Spokane offers a $99 "Stocking Stuffer" that's good for 5 youth tickets or 3 adult tickets good anytime. The price increases to $129 on January 1st.
