WINTERSPORTS – Plenty of big air and white-knuckle skiing, boarding and more is coming to Spokane on Thursday as the latest Warren Miller flick, “Here, There and Everywhere,” screens at 6:30 p.m. and 9.30 p.m. at the Bing Crosby Theater.
Tickets are $20, available at Spokane Alpine Haus, The Bing or online.
Warren Miller Entertainment’s 67th film features top athletes in action at Crested Butte and Kicking Horse resorts in North America to the Swiss Alps and glaciers of Greenland. Other destinations featured include Alaska, California, Utah, Montana – and Fenway Park.
“Here, There & Everywhere” showcases a progressive side of snowsports, from fat biking, backcountry snowmobiling and hill-climb racing – featuring Polaris pro Keith Curtis – to dogsledding and the ever crowd-pleasing pond skimming.
Olympic gold medalist Jonny Moseley narrates the film, which includes cutting edge skiing as well as nostalgic on-screen interviews with the patriarch of winter stoke, Warren Miller.
Everyone at the films will receive vouchers for a free lift ticket to Mt. Bachelor, a free ticket to Mt. Spokane Ski and Snowboard Park, a free early or late season lift ticket to Steamboat and a voucher good for $25 off a purchase of $100 or more at Spokane Alpine Haus.
The Warren Miller films have a tradition of sparking excitement for the coming winter season.
The annual, nationwide Warren Miller Film Tour kicked off in Salt Lake City on Oct. 14.

Fishing proposals on commission agenda

Hanford Reach anglers hook salmon for hatchery
FISHING – Salmon anglers are needed this weekend to catch big Hanford Reach chinook and transfer them live to biologists who will take the eggs and milt for hatchery production.
Although the big chinooks are getting ripe, fishing success continues to be good in the stretch of the Columbia River downstream from Priest Rapids Dam. Anglers have been averaging eight hours per fish.
The fifth Annual “King of the Reach” Project is organized to collect live adult wild fall chinook by hook and line based out of the Vernita and White Bluffs boat launches.
“We are looking for anglers that are willing to commit to a day of fishing in the Hanford Reach to help us reach our collection goal of 400 live wild fall chinook,” said Paul Hoffarth, Washington Department of Fish and Wildlife biologist.
“These fish will be used for the production of 5.6 million fall chinook juvenile salmon to be released at Priest Rapids Hatchery in June of 2017.”
Anglers must register at the collection site each day prior to fishing, either at the Vernita or the White Bluffs (Wahluke) boat launch.
Only anglers registered for the Project will be allowed to fish this area of the Columbia River and no harvest is permitted in the closed waters.
The event will be conducted on Friday and Saturday from 6 a.m.-5 p.m. and on Sunday from 6 a.m.-1 p.m.
Participants are encouraged to register online for the CCA King of the Reach Derby.
