Winthrop Weekend Happenings... 01/23/14

The following information comes to you, thanks to our Fabulous Winthrop Chamber!  See below for some weekend highlights.  Yes, Pine Near RV Park & Campground is open!

We have good cross-country skiing right now.  The MVSTA grooming report gives very accurate updates on the current conditions.  The MVSTA Facebook page and the MVSTA website Photo of the Day show images taken daily on the trails.  If you have any questions about conditions please feel free to call us or even better, call MVSTA at 509-996-3287. They are always up to date.  
We would just call them and call you back 

This Friday is a free ski day on the trails as part of the Methow Valley Nordic Festival.  This includes free rentals, lessons and trailside fun at the Mazama Trailhead from 10am-3pm.  Saturday there is a skate ski race in the Rendezvous. 

Saturday evening you can go to the Nordic Festival Party and dinner at The Barn for the Methow Valley Nordic Team - the very team our, three awesome Olympic Skiers grew up on!

The Party goes from 5:30 pm to 9 pm at the Winthrop Barn.  Dinner tickets are $10 - $16 in advance - available by emailing

Big Hockey Tournament Jan. 24-26
Come be a spectator!  It's fun to watch hockey at an outdoor rink.  By the way, you can sit inside the warm spectating area if you arrive early enough!

Please note that the regular ice rink schedule is modified due to this event.
  • THE ONLY PUBLIC SKATE IS SATURDAY, JANUARY 25 from 12pm-2pm and Sunday, January 26 after 12noon.   The rest of the weekend is dedicated to the tournament and to a couple of public hockey games.  
  • Come down and watch!
