Mt Spokane Ski Getaways
Mt. Spokane in Mead, Washington is a non-profit resort that works with its community through sponsorships to support its continued operation and growth. Their focus is on developing a family friendly ski area where excellent customer service is a priority and there is plenty of fun to be had, day and night. With about 60% of the mountain lit up after dark Wednesday through Saturdays, Spokane is able to accommodate all kinds of schedules and even provides regular bus transportation to the town of Spokane about 30 miles away.
There are a total of 45 runs at Mt. Spokane all served by 5 double-chair lifts and spread out over 1,250 acres and a 2,000 foot vertical. The terrain is pretty well balanced in terms of percentages for all levels at 23%, 45% and 32% easiest, intermediate and most difficult respectively. It is also pretty well grouped, with a few exceptions, beginners will want to stick mostly to Chair 3 or Chair 5 with the later being the true beginner chair. Chairs 1, 2 are more geared toward the intermediate and advanced skiers and riders and offer a number of options from wide open No Alibi and Two Face, to tight spots like Powder Shoot and Lost Woods. Chair 4 is on the backside of the mountain and also provides access to the much of Mt. Spokane's freestyle terrain. The Scion Snowpark, with its outdoor music system, is very well rated and a favorite terrain park of locals and visitors alike.
