Backcountry skier Jeff Zickler, of Spokane, applies “skins,” or traction devices, to his skis in preparation for an uphill walk on Tuesday at Mt. Spokane Ski and Snowboard Park. Zickler rides a split board, which comes apart to be used as skis, then is reassembled at the top and ridden down as a snowboard. The ski area opened Friday.
