WINTERSPORTS -- Long before the kickoff of the football game people have been talking about, the Women’s Souper Bowl X at Mount Spokane was a whopping success today.
The sky was blue, nordic skiing and snowshoeing trails groomed and the mountain was sparkling in windless sunshine to greet more than 300 particpants who signed up for the 11th annual event that encourages women to take an enjoyable step into winter.
The games, treks, camaraderie, lunch and prizes are nice perks, too. They even had close selfie encounters with an REI employee dressed as Bigfoot.
The fundraiser raised roughly $11,000 to supports the Women’s and Children’s Free Restaurant.
