SKI TRAILS —  With the State Park cutbacks, the Spokane Nordic club members say more help is needed now more than ever to get the Mount Spokane cross-country ski trails in shape for winter.

The group, as usual, is organizing a series of trail maintenace days to get things pruned and groomed and ready for snow.

The first Trail Days effort of the season is July 21 followed by other work days on Aug. 12, Sept. 8, Sept. 16, Oct 6. and Oct. 21.


Meet at the Selkirk Lodge at 9 a.m. Be dressed in work clothes and bring gloves and your lunch. Also bring hammers, sledge hammers and long-handled shovels if you have them.

Even the kids can have fun lopping alder and exploring the park in the summer!
