What a great season at Mt Spokane. We went up several times during the season and all of us had a wonderful time. My Children participated in a lesson program and the Ski School was wonderful. The instructor did great with a class of eight beginners all around 9 years old. After the first day they were all able to get on the beginner lift, buy the third day of lessons they were on the blue runs. The staff does a great job with the facilities they have to work with. Since it is a non-profit ski area, with no ones large pocket book to help them out, I encourage anyone who likes to ski at a family friendly, easy paced ski area to help them in their quest to get funding for a new lodge and future expansion. Food service could use some work but tickets, rentals, lessons, grooming, and overall experience was great.
