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?

Columbia River coho salmon forecast grim

Predicting salmon returns is a lot like winning the power ball lottery, and this past summer’s Columbia River coho forecast was a perfect example.

Leavenworth’s Moose Dewlap Trek good for all ages

As I ski along trails in the Lake Wenatchee valley, it strikes me: I’m just two hours from Seattle, yet I’m in the middle of some of the best cross-country ski terrain in the Northwest.
