The possibilities for high-quality day hikes here in the nearby foothills and mountains of North Central Washington are almost endless. If you're of that mind, now is a great time to start getting those hiking legs whipped into shape.
The day started like any other Hog Loppet day for my wife, Irene, and me. Early get-up, quick shower and breakfast, and out the door by 6:00 to make the 6:30 bus at Wenatchee’s Performing Arts Center parking lot. We were in the second bus, and we pulled out at 6:33. So far, so good.
Leavenworth, WA - The Hog Loppet is a non-competitive 30-kilometer ski trek from the top of Mission Ridge Ski Area to Blewett Pass located in Central Washington. The 24th annual ski event has been coordinated and produced by the Leavenworth Winter Sports Club (LWSC) for more than 6 years. Since adopting the event, LWSC now recruits more than 500 participants and set a maximum participation to 600 skiers. LWSC’s success falls largely on their amazing aid stations, shuttle transportation, volunteers and dedicated sponsorship from Icicle Creek Homes.
