Let’s name Mt. Spokane’s new downhill ski runs

WINTERSPORTS -- Now that the Washington Parks and Recreation Commission has approved the controversial expansion of the downhill skiing area at Mount Spokane State Park, much more work must be done.

More planning is needed, plus permitting, installing a chairlift and building seven new ski runs totaling 74 acres through  279 acres of pristine mountain habitat on the northwest side of the mountain. 

The least the public can do is help Mt. Spokane Ski and Snowboard Park name the seven new runs!

A few suggestions to start the process:

  1. Missing Lynx
  2. Former Getaway
  3. Backcountry Found
  4. Wild Hare
  5. Close to Home
  6. Almost Schweitzer
  7. Compromise
