Description: Mt. Spokane is the perfect mountain of beginner skiers. If you are looking to learn how to ski/snowboard or to hone your skills this is the mountain for you. For all you experienced skiers, Mt. Spokane has something for you too the steeps and tree skiing can be found if you are willing to go exploring. Mt. Spokane is known for its night skiing. Located so close to campus many students enjoy going up in the evening and skiing in the large terrain park the is lit up.
When you just want to go up and hit the slopes for an easier day, Mt. Spokane is the place! There are two lodges to park at. Lodge 1 is the first one you hit and is always less populated but doesn’t have rentals, lessons, or a bunny hill. Lodge 2 is 5 more minutes and has all of the previously stated. The mountain is split within difficulty. On the left are the black diamonds (harder runs) and the left are green and blues (easier). The back side with chair 4 is always less populated and has some great longer runs. Always colder and a little icy but not if you hit it early. The mountain has great night skiing and overall and fun, close, and cheaper mountain to ski and snowboard. Hailey Fitterer
