Stand in Spokane and look up at Mt. Spokane and it becomes obvious that this is a place you want to go. Just 45 minutes from downtown, Mt. Spokane offers a grand views toward the lakes of North Idaho. It also boasts 45 runs, cool, dry air and soft white powder that brings peace to skiers and boarders as they float softly down the mountain. Mt. Spokane operates day and night and gives skiers and boarders in the inland northwest a place to go on the weekends – or to wind down after work.
