Erik Brooks STORYSKI Event

STORYSKI! with picture book author and illustrator, Erik Brooks

Presented by Erik and The Methow Valley Sport Trails Association, STORYSKI is a one kilometer cross-country ski trail lined with the children's picture book, POLAR OPPOSITES. This ski trail allows young skiers and their families to ski while reading the entire story of Alex the polar bear and Zina the penguin. 18 colorful story-panels line the trail -- for a self-guided storybook tour.

STORYSKI will rotate to three different locations throughout the winter in the Methow Valley. From now through January 13, STORYSKI will be located at the Mazama Corral Trailhead. Author Erik Brooks will lead his first guided tour on Sunday, December 26 at 11 a.m.

Books will be available for sale and signing immediately following at the Mazama Store!

Only six brave and hearty skiers (plus an assortment of parents) on this blustery post-Christmas morning :) Still, a LOT of fun for me and all those in attendance. I know through the grapevine that the "trail" has gotten lots of self-guided use as well. It will be up and running all winter here in the snowy Methow. Come and ski!
