Another day, another announcement of an early-season opening at one of our local ski spots.

And there was much rejoicing.

Mt. Spokane Ski & Snowboard Park sent out word that they will open this Friday, Nov. 17, with discounted tickets due to the limited terrain and early season conditions. For $30 for adults and $25 for kids, you can make turns from lifts 2, 3 and 5.

"Coverage is excellent on the groomed runs!" the statement says. "Early season conditions do exist. 10 runs will be open and groomed, and the Terrain Park Crew is hammering down to get a bunch of features built."

You can check out the Mt. Spokane webcam to see the conditions for yourself here.

Maybe that big winter that's been rumored for the Inland Northwest is coming to fruition. Between hitting the slopes, give our latest Snowlander issue a read, on stands now and featuring information on no less than 48 Northwest resorts waiting for you.

And, of course, don't forget the Inlander Winter Party this weekend (Friday, 4 to 9 pm; Saturday, 10 am to 7 pm) where you can get some sweet deals, including free passes, from various ski shops and resorts.
