WINTERSPORTS -- Volunteers are putting finishing touches on the new winter shelter primarily geared for snowshoers at Mount Spokane State Park.

The hut is 1.25 miles up the Lower Kit Carson Loop Road from the hairpin curve parking lot.

Cris Currie of the Friends of Mount Spokane State Park focused last weekend to painting the hut's interior, and there are several more projects to finish.

"It was a wonderful 73 degrees up there and really peaceful," he said.

To help with the volunteer effort, contact Currie by email, criscurrie22@gmail.com.

ANOTHER PROJECT seeking volunteers is a four-day bridge-building work party starting Friday at Mount Spokane not far from this cabin. Holly Weiler of the Washington Trails Association is coordinating helpers to build more bridges over Burping Brook and tributaries, much like the bridge that was much appreciated last winter by snowshoers in the area.
