Rumor has it that some ski areas in Washington State might have snow for Thanksgiving and cross country skiiers can cross their fingers and head to one of my favorite lodges. Sun Mountain Lodge is hosting a Thanksgiving dinner featuring fresh, local dishes with ingredients from the Methow Valley and an award-winning selection of wines. Guest room and Thanksgiving dinner packages are available. Reservations required.
If you stay at the Lodge for the weekend, be sure to take a sleigh ride to the old miner’s tent and have dinner (byob); and check out the cowboy town of Winthrop’s kick off to the Christmas season. You should also read my article on this magical place.
