Learning to Ski with the Family

How does that old saying go . . . A family that plays together stays together?  Well, winter is upon us there's no better time then the present to start playing.  But what can we do, you ask?  I would suggest a date with one of the oldest winter sports courtesy of the Spokane Parks & Recreation Department.  I'm talking about family cross country ski lessons.  Honestly, this should top your winter "to do" list.  You're on the snow in Mount Spokane State Park, you'll discover a great family activity and you'll receive professional ski instruction.  It doesn't get much better than that!  But what's the best part about cross country skiing?  For me, it's that you can make it as relaxing or strenuous as you want.  It's truly a winter activity for everyone.  But enough about me.  What activities get your family going during the winter months?  Have you participated in any other activities through the Spokane Parks & Recreation Department?

That sounds like a blast! What a great family activity. My favorite part about Mount Spokane State Park is the extensive trail system. It seems like you could ski there all winter and never hit the same trail twice.

I love to cross country ski as a kid we use to go to Mount Spokane and ski. We would ski for about an hour, have lunch then head back to the car. Trails are groomed and there is parking.
