Today, we experienced a snow slide off the roof of the Selkirk Lodge. The snow fell onto the west wall of the tent, collapsing the wall.
As a community, we pulled together and we wanted to say THANK YOU….THANK YOU to the countless people who offered help, THANK YOU to people who helped to clear snow, THANK YOU to the volunteers from the Women and Children’s Free Restaurant, THANK YOU to REI, THANK YOU to the wonderful participants of the event who selflessly aided strangers and friends, THANK YOU to the Nordic Community and THANK YOU to the Mt. Spokane Ski Patrol for their quick response
