ike the snow? So do we! We don’t hibernate in Okanogan Country. We meet winter head on in sports and fun, even in the chilliest weather. Those trails that worked for ATVs also work for snowmobiles, and local clubs keep the paths groomed and used for those wanting to feel that crisp, fresh air. We also have our own ski areas. The Loup Loup Ski Bowl offers skiers and snowboarders great slopes, great powder and great mountain views. Sitzmark Ski Hill at Havillah, outside Tonasket, has its own slopes, with classes and good times for anyone wanting to take on the snow.
