OUR GUIDE TO THE BEST TUBING I N T H E PA C I F I C N O R T H W E S T

S

ome people may be counting the days until spring, but many like the snowy season to last as long as possible. Downhill and cross-country skiing, snowboarding, snowshoeing, and the like have always been popular pastimes. But more and more ski resorts are adding snow tubing parks to help entice families. They are affordable and offer several hours of snowy fun without the cost of expensive equipment. So, what is snow tubing? It’s described as similar to sledding, but faster and more fun. Snow tubing is a thrilling way to enjoy the snow with a minimum of effort. Speed demons, pleasuremongers, and even more conservative types alike enjoy swooshing down the 100-foot slope while sitting in a specially-

Volume 4 Issue 4 • Winter 2011

designed snow tube. Think tubing behind a boat but without the water and sunburn. Many people have memories of sledding as kids (or now, as parents), shooting down a snowy hill only to be met with a daunting hike back up the hill with sleds, tubes, toboggans, and even plastic cafeteria trays. Many tubing parks have solved that problem with tow ropes or other mechanisms that you hold on to while being effortlessly pulled back up to the top of the run. This allows you to get in the maximum number of runs without being too pooped to enjoy them. The runs are groomed to provide a smooth ride to the bottom. No skill is required. There are many destinations within a few hours of the Tri-Cities. (cont. on next page)

L t. Michael Adams Tubing Park

L E AV E N W O R T H , WA Three hours away in the Bavarian village of Leavenworth is the Lt. Michael Adams Tubing Park, which is part of the Leavenworth Ski Hill. The hill is less than two miles from downtown. The park is named for the WestPoint graduate from Leavenworth who was killed while serving in Iraq in 2004. The tube lift was purchased in large part with a donation from his family and friends. Just as with any activity, there are guidelines designed to keep tubers safe. You must use only the tubes provided. Only one person can ride a tube at a time. It’s recommended that tubers be at least eight years old, as riders need to be able to sit in the tube alone.

BEFORE YOU GO, TA K E T H E T I M E T O DOWNLOAD AND FILL OUT A COMPLETED RELEASE FORM FOR EACH RIDER. The hill is open Wednesday through Sunday for 90-minute sessions at a cost of $15 (a little more on holidays). During holidays and breaks from school, the park operates on a longer schedule. Before you go, take the time to download and fill out a completed release form for each rider. This will eliminate having to stand out in the cold and fill out multiple forms before the fun can begin. After your tubing session, warm up with hot cocoa in the historic ski lodge built in 1930.

The Perfect Move Magazine

Here’s another winter family activity in Leavenworth to look forward to: townsfolk are raising money to build a year-round pavilion to accommodate ice skating, hockey and curling. To get to Leavenworth’s tubing park, drive past Leavenworth on Highway 2 going west. Before reaching the end of town, go right on Ski Hill Road. Follow Ski Hill Road for 1.5 miles and go straight into the parking lot (there is a large Leavenworth Ski Hill sign). I N F O @ S K I L E AV E N W O R T H . C O M

T he Summit at Snoqualmie S N O Q U A L M I E , WA The Summit at Snoqualmie offers twohour tubing sessions. With 12 groomed lanes the length of a football field, you may choose to hoof it back up to the top on a

designated path or you can ride the surface tow, which is like a magic carpet ride. The Summit Tubing area usually opens around the first weekend in December and operates through the first weekend of April, snow permitting. The recommended age for tubing at Snoqualmie is three. Children less than 42 inches tall may double up with another rider. Prices run from five dollars for the littlest tubers to $19 for adults. You may download a release form from the website to take with you to minimize your wait time. You may also purchase tickets ahead of time online. There is a small café near the tubing area with an extensive menu. To reach Snoqualmie Summit, take Interstate 90 to exit 53. Follow the signs from the off ramp to Summit Central. The tubing area entrance is located in the SE corner of the Summit Central main parking lot. You will see a large sign off the street that reads “Summit Tubing Area.” S U M M I TAT S N O Q U A L M I E . C O M Winter 2011 • Volume 4 Issue 4


Mt. Spokane S P O K A N E , WA The new Children’s Choice tubing hill features several lanes of tubing and a new rope tow. A unique feature of this tubing park is that it is lit for night tubing. Ninety-minute sessions are just ten dollars for those over 42 inches tall. Kids under the height minimum are free if riding with a paid adult. If you want to add another session on, you’ll pay just five dollars more. Sessions are limited to just 50 people. You may download a release form prior to your trip. To get to Mt.Spokane from I-90, take exit 287 for Argonne Rd. and continue north on Argonne for 10-15 minutes. Take the first right at the traffic circle and follow signs to Mt. Spokane State Park and the ski area. MTSPOKANE.COM

Schweitzer Mt. and Silver Mt. NORTH IDAHO Head the other direction towards North Idaho and you’ll have two choices for snow tubing: Schweitzer Mountain near Sandpoint and Silver Mountain in Kellogg. At Schweitzer, you’ll find Hermit's Hollow, which has two 100-foot lanes and a rope tow back to the top. Children must be 42 inches to ride the tubes and reservations are strongly recommended, as the tubing sessions tend to sell out. Schweitzer is definitely a destination resort. Besides snow tubing, the resort offers guided snowshoe hikes, geocaching, crosscountry skiing, and a new activity called “airboarding” which is starting this spring. From I-90 East, take Highway 95 North to Sandpoint and follow the signs. SCHWEITZER.COM

At Silver Mountain in Kellogg, you’ll not only get a two-hour snow tubing session, but a bonus three-mile gondola ride to the top of the mountain as well. Once you’re there, you’ll find four runs and a magic carpet ride back to the top. Adults are $20, youth pay $18 and children four and under are free. The tube park is open most weekends and holidays throughout the ski season. Good luck, mom and dad, keeping the kids away from Silver Mountain’s indoor water park! Take I-90 East through Coeur d’Alene to Bunker Ave. in Kellogg and follow the signs.

Free Snow Tubing Close to Home R I C H L A N D , WA Probably the most popular destination for snowy fun is at Carmichael Middle School in Richland. Generations of families have enjoyed sledding, tubing and tobogganing down the hill. A few folks on skis and snowboards have even been spotted. When the snow flies and sticks in the Tri-Cities, you can be sure to see legions of residents flock to the hill. 

Mt. Bachelor OREGON Another destination resort in the Northwest is Mt. Bachelor, near Bend, Oregon. The Snowblast Tubing Park, with an 800foot ride full of rolling hills, also features a magic carpet ride back to the top. Children must be at least 42 inches to ride and no doubling up on tubes is allowed. Tickets may be purchased at the resort and the two-hour sessions do tend to sell out. The tubing park is open from 10:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. Saturdays and Sundays. On good roads, getting to Mt. Bachelor is about a five-hour drive. Take I-84 towards Portland to Highway 97 and follow the signs. MTBACHELOR.COM

Vicki and her team make the perfect move CENTURY 21 Tri-Cities opens with Vicki monteagudo as its managing broker

W

ith a new year come new beginnings, and Vicki Monteagudo is no exception to that. January marks the opening of CENTURY 21 Tri-Cities, with Vicki as its managing broker. With a new office in a location near the mall in Kennewick and a new partnership with CENTURY 21, Vicki is poised to continue her unique level of service to buyers, sellers, and builders. Unless you live under a rock, no doubt you have seen Vicki’s marketing at work. Utilizing TV ads, full-color newspaper ads, billboards, personalized “for sale” signs, direct mail campaigns, and social media such as Craigslist and Facebook, Vicki Monteagudo is one of the most recognized real estate

“One of Vicki’s goals for her real estate team is to become the number one agency in the Tri-Cities, while raising the bar on customer service and revolutionizing the Tri-Cities real estate market.” agents in the Tri-Cities. After almost ten years of running what she calls “a brokerage within a brokerage,” Vicki decided it was time to follow her entrepreneurial spirit and open her own full-service firm. Vicki is an award-winning multi-million-dollar producer, earning many local, regional and national awards with her prior firm. After consistently being one of the top-producing agents in the Tri-Cities, it was time for Vicki to take her busi-

ness to the next level under her own roof. Vicki decided to operate under the CENTURY 21 umbrella because of the brand’s strong international recognition and back-end support. Since there hasn’t been a CENTURY 21 franchise in the Tri-Cities for several years, it was an opportune time to ally her business with the distinguished brand. CENTURY 21 is the world’s largest residential real estate sales organization, providing comprehensive training, management, administrative and marketing support for the CENTURY 21® System. The System is comprised of approximately 8,000 independently owned and operated franchised broker offices and 121,000 agents in 71 countries and territories worldwide. While real estate is at the core of her business, Vicki oversees another firm that operates independently from the real estate business, yet shares many overlapping functions. MM3 Design Agency is Vicki’s marketing operation that handles advertising, web design and management, graphic design, and professional photography for external customers. The MM3 folks are also charged with creating any printed materials used on the real estate side of the business. After being housed for years on opposite sides of a large office building, MM3 and Vicki’s real estate team can happily co-exist under the same roof of the new CENTURY 21 office, thus streamlining operations for employees and customers. “When builders and developers come to us, they’re looking for an ad agency, not

just a salesperson,” Vicki says. “It just makes better sense to locate my team of marketing and design professionals in the same office with my real estate team.” As part of her commitment to marketing excellence, Vicki will continue to publish the lifestyle magazine The Perfect Move, which is distributed quarterly at 110 locations around the Mid-Columbia. The Perfect Move aims to celebrate all things Tri-Cities. It’s chock-full of articles featuring events, notable people and places, activities, and ideas to give readers a feel for the TriCities and surrounding areas. One of Vicki’s goals for her real estate team is to become the number one agency in the Tri-Cities, while raising the bar on customer service and revolutionizing the Tri-Cities real estate market. Vicki also plans to recruit other agents who have the same business philosophy she does: a commitment to excellence, a passion for the power of creative marketing, and a desire to be a part of a top-producing team in the Tri-Cities. Vicki and her team will operate with several goals in mind: to provide the highest level of marketing, advertising and professionalism to their clients in getting their properties sold; to develop excellent relationships with builders; and to provide cutting-edge marketing strategies to customers. Vicki and her team of real estate and marketing professionals invite you to stop by and visit them at their new location.  – Shannon Cartier

TOUR THE CITY

When it comes to Valentine’s Day, some people argue it’s just a “retail holiday,” only designed to line the pockets of merchants. Others feel it’s a chance to show their special someone just how much they are appreciated, while others would rather just skip the day all together. No matter where you fall on the spectrum, the ideas below are designed with couples in mind, but can easily turn in to an outing for a group of girlfriends or a treat for the singleton.

Reminiscing Get two cameras (or phones with cameras) and split up. Take pictures of places that bring back good memories of times together. Or take pictures of places that describe qualities of the other person. For example, if the person is sweet, take a picture of your local candy store. Once you've had the pictures developed, compare them over dinner, while recalling fond memories you've had together.  – Shannon Cartier

T

he Tri-Cities is hometown to many a distinguished person. But none is in the news quite as much these days as Richland’s born-and-raised Hope Solo. Thanks to the 13th season of “Dancing with the Stars,” if you weren’t familiar with her skill on the soccer pitch, you have probably at least heard of her paso doble. And if you don’t keep up with the popular ABC show, maybe you noticed Solo a few months ago posing nude on the cover of ESPN Magazine’s “Body” issue. With her beginnings in soccer playing with the Three Rivers Soccer Club, Solo started for the Richland High School Bombers, with whom she helped win the state 4A title, and was twice named a Parade magazine All-American. Switching to the position of goalkeeper at the University of Washington, Solo continued to earn accolades. In 2004, Solo was named an alternate member of the U.S. Olympic team, behind veteran goalkeeper Brianna Scurry. In 2005, she got the starting job and, in what was one of the most knuckle-biting matches in soccer history, helped her team defeat the Chinese women’s team in overtime in the 2008 Olympics to claim a gold medal. Solo is also featured in many national advertisements for brands such as Nike. She recently inked a sponsorship deal with Gatorade and graced the cover of Sports Illustrated. Although she appears as comfortable in Hollywood as in the TriCities, her friends and former Richland teammates say Solo is just as down-to-earth as ever. Regularly making visits back to her hometown, she continues to inspire young soccer players, and maybe even a few aspiring ballroom dancers.  – Shannon Cartier

city as spread-out as ours can necessitate sometimes bothersome driving. Just popping out for some groceries can be a half-hour roundtrip, and if you want that one thing they don’t seem to carry at the store nearest you, it could mean considerable time spent. It makes sense, then, that some among us would clamor for delivery services. Commonplace in the UK where many live in upper story flats without access to an elevator, but still a novelty here in the US, grocery delivery is also brand-new to the Tri-Cities. Yes, the money spent on gas and time makes doing the shopping yourself a cheaper proposition, but perhaps you have better things to do. While West Richlandians pay a few dollars more, with this new service it’s only seven bucks to get those heavy bags carted up your steps.

very now and then, there comes an event so elegant it’s best not just to put your best face forward, but rather an entirely different face all together: a mask, that is. Be charmed by the flamboyant gala of this year’s Thompson Hill Cellar Masquerade Ball. Invented in Italy, masquerades were once events held for all noblemen to be commoners and vice versa. Masquerades set a stage of mystery, anonymity and ostentatiousness and created a level playing field. There are a few rules you should know about attending masquerades: contribute to the atmosphere by dressing up with mask and all, start a conversation with

someone by first asking, “Do I know you?” or “Do you know me?” and reply to such questions with, “I do know you,” or “I will know you.” Also remember that in addition to your costume, use your wits and charm to stand out from the crowd. Or alternately, sit back, take a sip of the famous Thompson Hill wine and enjoy taking in the sights. And really, what could be more fun than decadence, dressing up and good wine? Be sure to dress for the occasion and enjoy the wine, the beautiful vistas, and the many costumes. I wish I could say I will see you there, but it’s likely we wouldn’t recognize each other.  – Michael Grey, Waddido.com

HOME THEATER

Neither Nordic nor knowledgeable about runes, GrubRuners (pronounced “Grub Runners”) hopes the “missing n” will spark conversation. (There were also initial problems obtaining the correct domain name.) But, strangely enough, many people don’t even question it! Delivery charges: West Richland: $10 Kennewick, Pasco, or Richland: $10 groceries, $7 prepared meals from restaurants Anything over $100 raises the delivery charge to 10% of the cost of your food.

The only-recently-established GrubRuners (say “runners,” not “runers”) does exactly that: tell them what to purchase and they’ll hand-deliver it to your door. With all employees carrying Washington State food handler certification, you don’t have to worry. They won’t allow your ice cream to melt or spoil the milk. Also delivering meals from any restaurant in the Tri-Cities, you can place your order with GrubRuners by either visiting grubruners.com/Place_Your_Order.php or calling 509-591-8313. They’ll be at your door about 45 minutes later.  – Craig Fleetham

behind the paintings she made of her and Ed that grace the labels of several of their wines. In 1986, she and Ed were preparing to take a month-long trip to New Zealand. She worried their plane might crash and wanted something for their sons to remember them by. Not only did they survive, the Shaws thrived by handcrafting Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon, blends such as the sold-out Black Dog Red, and a soon-to-be released Riesling. They welcome visitors to their home for no-fee tastings by appointment. Their wines are sold at their home and at a few Western Washington retailers.  – Shannon Cartier

March of Dimes Working with volunteers and corporations for stronger, healthier babies

W

ith advances in health care, better education for pregnant women, and strides made in research, it may shock you to know that one in eight babies is still born too soon. Premature birth can happen without warning and for no reason. The March of Dimes was founded under a different name and a slightly different mission by President Franklin D. Roosevelt in 1938. The organization’s original intent was to fight polio, which paralyzed FDR. The non-profit eventually changed its name and scope and began its work to improve the health of babies by preventing birth defects, premature birth and infant mortality. The group raises money to fund research, community services,

A healthy pregnancy offers the best chance for a healthy baby. The March of Dimes reaches out to moms-to-be with local programs, including preconception and interconception care, enhanced prenatal care programs, programs to help women quit smoking or using drugs, and folic acid education.

education and advocacy to save babies’ lives. In 1970, the March of Dimes’ biggest fundraiser began. Originally called WalkAmerica, the name was changed to the March for Babies and continues to attract millions of people across America. This year’s Walk for Babies in the Tri-Cities is Saturday, April 28 at Columbia Park in Kennewick. One thousand walkers are expected to turn out for the six-mile trek. Signups for the fundraiser begin in January. Breakfast and lunch are provided for walkers. One of the programs monies raised will support is a partnership with Mid-Columbia Libraries, which will educate low-income expectant mothers about proper prenatal health. marchofdimes.com  – Shannon Cartier

Homemade Sweet Treats

alentine’s Day is the perfect occasion to make candy for your friends, family, and loved ones. Although heart-shaped boxes of chocolates swarm store shelves, homemade candy is a great expression of love and friendship. These lollipop candies have a cinnamon kick and a cute heart shape. Make sure you have an accurate candy thermometer for this recipe! Total time: 20 minutes

Prepare your molds by spraying them with nonstick cooking spray and inserting lollipop sticks into the molds.

Combine the sugar, corn syrup, and water in a medium saucepan over medium-high heat. Insert the candy thermometer and stir until sugar dissolves. Allow to boil, without stirring, until candy reaches 295 degrees (hard-crack stage).

Once the candy reaches 295, remove it from heat. Stir in the cinnamon oil and 1-2 drops of red food coloring. Spoon the candy into the mold cavities, making sure to cover the backs of the sticks. Allow to cool completely and remove once hardened.

Variation: Mint extract can be substituted for cinnamon.  – Source: About.com

Twigs Bistro & Martini Bar Award-Winning Tastes at the Mall

I

t’s always a major event when a new restaurant opens in the Tri-Cities. (Remember getting an Olive Garden?!) This time, TriCitians are flocking to Twigs Bistro and Martini Bar, which opened in October at Columbia Center Mall in Kennewick. Owned by the Blackwell family and a fixture in Spokane since the opening of their first location in Riverpark Square in 2001, the Kennewick branch of Twigs is the family’s fifth, and the only one outside Spokane. The Blackwells say opening a Twigs outside Spokane was what they considered a perfect fit. They say the Tri-Cities was ripe for a restaurant that’s casual and has different offerings than chains.

Twigs Bistro & Martini Bar 1321 N. Columbia Center Blvd Suite 901A Kennewick 509.735.3411

twigsbistro.com Open Daily at 11:00 a.m. for lunch, dinner and late nights.

What can you expect from a visit to Twigs? A family-friendly yet sophisticated menu, weekly specials and daily happy hour, plus 36 signature martinis. You’ll also notice the stand-out architecture and décor, such as the liquor tower in the bar that holds over 600 bottles. The dining room features a pyramid-shaped fireplace, which is visible from all areas of the restaurant. Once the weather is milder, you may enjoy sitting on the patio at the front of the restaurant. And if you want privacy, there’s a small banquet room that seats 25 with a full audio and video setup. Named “Best Martinis,” “Best Happy Hour,” “Best Fries,” and “Best Pizza” from several regional publications, you can taste for yourself why so many Tri-Citians are drawn to this new hangout.  – Shannon Cartier

Mid-Columbia Gymnastics Indoor activities for kids help curb cabin fever

Y

ou’ve walked around the mall, Target, and Costco, been to the library and hung around the house. It’s cold out and you and the kids are stir-crazy. Here’s a great solution to burn off some steam. Mid-Columbia Gymnastics and Cheer hosts an indoor playground for kids up to age six. Between their two facilities, there is a session every weekday. Besides many of the standard gymnastics staples, your kids can bounce in the inflatable tiger, jump into the foam pit, climb the rock wall, run along the tumble track, and—quite literally—bounce off

the walls. Babies will enjoy exploring the various push and pull toys and showing off their best crawling and walking skills. As it’s also a chance for parents to chat, this indoor play time has saved many a mom and dad from the wintertime doldrums. The first time you go, it’s free. If your child is under 17 months, it’s also free every visit. For ages 18 months to six years, it’s five dollars per visit. The two gyms have different sessions, so check the website for dates, times, and holiday schedules.  – Shannon Cartier


Super places to watch the Super Bowl

A

s an unofficial American holiday, taking in the Super Bowl is a must-do for many people. Some host their own viewing party; some go to friends’ places for the festivities. My vote this year? Head to a local watering hole and let someone else wait on you and clean up the mess! Here are some great establishments to get the best view of the big game…and the commercials! Kimo’s, Kennewick – How about watching the game in the restaurant of a former NFL player? Boasting eight beers on tap made in-house, 20 TVs, and lots of giveaways, including some memorabilia autographed by Kimo himself, you don’t have to be a Steelers fan to show up. The Pub, Kennewick – With 12 beers on tap, a full bar, 15 TVs, free popcorn and peanuts, and

permission to throw the shells on the floor, you’ll feel right at home. Towne Crier, Richland – A good old-fashioned bar in Uptown Richland, the Towne Crier is giving away a trip to Las Vegas during this year’s Super Bowl. Lots of prizes and a special buffet make this a good option for those in Central Richland. Jackson’s Sports Bar, Richland – Drink specials, 24 TVs, a full bar and menu, and a giant projection screen in the game room means there’s not a bad seat in the house. The Dugout, Pasco – A no-frills hangout with a great burger and a full bar is what you’re in for. Five big screens and great specials on pitchers, it’s a great place to hang with the guys.  – Shannon Cartier
