Women’s Souper Bowl kicks off with snowshoeing, skiing, food

Hours before the big football game last Sunday, a team of more than 300 ladies flocked to Mount Spokane backed by a “12th Man” support group handing out snowshoes, skis, food and prizes. The 10th annual Women’s Souper Bowl Snowshoe and X-Country Ski Day kicked off Super Bowl Sunday with good companionship and sometimes gaggles of giggles. Groups trekking around the state park nordic trails put together poker hands for prizes before being served a soup-er lunch. In 10 years, the event has raised more than $100,000 for the Women’s and Children’s Free Restaurant. (Rich Landers)
