First Day Hike - cross-country ski

Wednesday, January 1, 2020

Washington State Parks and Spokane Nordic Ski Association (SNSA) are partnering to host a First Day Ski in the Nordic area of Mt. Spokane State Park. Participants will enjoy a beginner to moderate ski to the Nordic Hut (~2.5 miles round trip) where they can relax by the wood stove and enjoy a snack. There will also be a longer moderate loop option to ski out to Shadow Mountain (~2.5 additional miles) before returning to the Selkirk Lodge.

Participants should meet in front of the Selkirk Lodge at 1 p.m. Cross-country ski rentals are available from Fitness Fanatics located at Mount Spokane State Park in the Selkirk Lodge parking area. You can reserve your skis in advance by calling Fitness Fanatics at (509) 922-6080. Non-motorized Sno-Park and Special Groomed Trail permits are required to park in the Selkirk Lodge parking lot. Passes can be purchased at the Mount Spokane State Park office or online at
