Mazama Ski Rodeo 10k Skate Dec 31

The views aren't bad from the course.
The Methow Valley is lucky to have plenty of snow this winter.   In fact it's about the only place in Washington state to have gotten (and kept) snow.     The folks at Methow Trails are keeping it all groomed and beautiful for us.
Pint glasses for the first 200 skiers.

If you're looking for a bit of fun during the holidays, why not come out for the annual Mazama Ski Rodeo!    The Ski Rodeo is a fun and friendly 10km skate race in Mazama.     Every year there are some serious hot-shots at the pointy end of the race, and also a whole lot of people out having a great time.  The views from the course are spectacular (if it's not snowing).

This year, the first 200 entries will also receive a commemorative pint glass.

The Ski Rodeo is on Dec 31st.    Click here for info.  So if you're looking at getting a head start on the party, come out and join us!
