LWSC skiers named to Junior Nationals team

Everybody out: MSR snowshoes - a reliable choice

I have used many different brands of snowshoes but find those made by MSR particularly reliable. The hinge system is based metal on metal. Others are hinged in heavy plastic or rubber and can wear out or break. Below are thoughts I have about MSR snowshoes in general as well as thoughts about a test pair of MSR snowshoes I am currently using that don’t yet have a name.

More snow on the way for area ski hills

NORTH CENTRAL WASHINGTON — The winter weather advisory issued Monday is expected to drop 6 to 11 inches of snow mainly along the southern Cascade ski areas.

Snow returns to the ski hills after ice storms

NCW — The total snowfall this season is 207 inches at Mount Baker Ski Area; 162 inches at the Summit at Snoqualmie; 216 inches at Stevens Pass Resort; 182 inches at Crystal Mountain Resort; and 217 to 250 inches at the White Pass Ski Area.

This last week my family and I got a couple of short test days to try out our new Hok skis made by Altai Skis. Here is my take on what I have discovered about these skis from using them thus far:

Everybody Out | Sports nutrition made simple

Awhile back I listened to Maureen Boswell, a registered dietician and a health-fitness instructor, talk to Wenatchee High School athletes about sports nutrition. Maureen has written articles for WenatcheeOutdoors in the past and on this evening she discussed the importance of proper nutrition before and during exercise if you hope to perform your best. This information had seen some tweaks and refinements since I’d been exposed to it last. What had seen more than tweaks and refinements was the newer research indicating that when you eat and drink after hard ...

Chelan brothers set to run entire length of Washington PCT

WENATCHEE — Last winter, when Niles and Cyrus Desmarais first started tossing around the idea of running the length of Washington’s Cascades, they pondered the thought of doing it by traversing the mountain range tops from Canada to Oregon.

Everybody Out: The magic of awe

A recent article in Parade Magazine discussed the power of awe in buoying happiness, healing psychological issues, and maintaining health. Some interesting quotes from the article:

Everybody Out: Trip report on biking up Old Blewett Pass

Attractions: This ride offers beautiful views, and riding Old Blewett Pass Highway is kind of like mountain biking on your road bike — on pavement, but on a “bike path through the forest.” It can also be ridden on a mountain bike. This adventure offers historical content at the information kiosk located on the West side of the pass, along with remnants of stone fireplaces from a structure long gone. Did you know Blewett Pass used to have a ski lodge?
