Pair of 5K races around the corner

As the seasons turn, multiple outdoor races are slated for spring in North Central Washington. Here are a few races coming up quickly near the Columbia Basin.

Gamble or double down?

I recently took a leisurely drive up the Columbia River to visit with Dave Christenson, the general manager of Gamble Sands golf course, just a few tics north of Brewster.

Snowboarding slumps with trend toward skiing again

This winter, there’s been something different about my mountain trips that I couldn’t quite put a finger on. It recently hit me in the lift line: skiers appear to be outnumbering snowboarders. After a couple of decades of growing popularity (estimated at about 5 million riders) that saved the snow sports industry, could snowboarding be in a slump?

Local skiers heading to national competition

Five cross country ski racers from the Wenatchee Valley have been named to the Pacific Northwest Ski Association (PNSA) team to represent the Pacific Northwest region encompassing Washington, Oregon and Idaho at the 2016 United States Ski Association Cross Country Skiing Junior National Championships.

The snowshoers started their trek uphill through the forest and morning gloom. But within an hour they were climbing into untracked powder and brilliant sunshine in the Kettle River Range. Fog filled the valleys below, but the big-footers were above it all.

Get out, beat SAD

Seasonal Affective Disorder is a mood disorder subset in which people who have normal mental health throughout most of the year experience depressive symptoms in the winter.
