NORDIC SKIING -- Cross country skiers are enjoying the rare treat of groomed trails in the city.

Mike Aho of Spokane Parks and Recreation saw the gift of snow and cold weather coming before the New Year and  used a snowmobile to groom tracks and a skating lane on the Centennial Trail in Riverside State Park from Seven Mile to the Bowl and Pitcher overlook.

Enjoy the fun while it lasts!
