Enjoy A Small Town

CHRISTMAS By Cindy Salazar

Executive Director of Historic Downtown Chelan Association

A

lthough Chelan is a small town, it’s BIG on ambiance, especially during the holidays. Enjoy A Small Town Christmas in Historic Chelan and discover it for yourself. Downtown twinkles during the holidays as white rooftop lights glitter against the night sky and giant lighted star sprays sparkle on lamp posts. A big multi-colored lighted tree stands in the

center of town and, beside it, Santa’s bright red mailbox reminds little ones to post a message to the North Pole. Merchants deck their windows for the season, each trying to outshine the next as they vie for top prize in downtown’s window decorating contest. The enchanting windows offer a peek of the treasures within, tempting and inviting shoppers to come inside to browse. The first three Saturdays in December are filled with family fun and smiles. The historic Ruby Theatre hosts free holiday matinees each Saturday. Santa invites little ones to join him one evening for cocoa and cookies in Campbell’s lobby, for breakfast one morning at B.C. MacDonald’s, and for photos at Riverwalk Books each Saturday after-

IN HISTORIC CHELAN

noon. Kids craft graham cracker cottages at The Vogue one morning and handmade gifts for their parents with help from the Story Lady one afternoon. Folks cheer on their favorite restaurant as judges sample their sweet creations in the Holiday Dessert TasteOff. Plus, shoppers complete their holiday gift list easily, finding everything they need at the charming shops, including free gift wrapping at many. All of downtown Chelan’s holiday fun and décor is punctuated by a storybook setting. Beautiful snow capped mountains and the blue water of Lake Chelan add the final touch of holiday ambiance to A Small Town Christmas in Historic Chelan.

ake Chelan isn’t just a summer destination, in the winter, there’s a host of recreational activities.

Echo Valley Ski & Tubing Area Facilities include three rope tows, a 1,400 foot Poma Lift and a 4-lane tubing hill. They offer ski/snowboard instruction & rentals for all ages & abilities. The base area has a day lodge & eatery with a roaring log-sized ireplace to warm the toes while enjoying the food concession. Echo Valley’s Family Ski Area also provide runs for snow tubing.

Please do not bring your own. Just 10 miles from either Chelan or Manson at 1700 Cooper Gulch Road, Chelan (509) 687-3167

Echo Ridge Nordic Ski Area Trails More than 25 miles of groomed skate and classic cross-country skiing 20 minutes outside of Chelan and Manson, plus additional ‘backcountry’ trails. Groomed trails follow the ridges of the terrain, creating a great skiing experience for all ability levels.

Echo Ridge is a U.S. Forest Service facility operated by the Chelan Ranger District and the Lake Chelan Nordic Ski Club. Season passes cost $70 and are available at the USFS Chelan Ranger Station. They are available at Uncle Tim’s Chelan Rentals & Mountain Cabins Ofice, near Echo Valley Ski Hill, at the bottom of the hill to Echo Ridge. The daily rate for skiers 18 and over is $10 a day at the trail head payable by cash or check. (17 and under ski free). Located just two miles past the Echo Valley Ski Area on Cooper Gulch Road. Note that Sno-Park, Northwest Forest Pass and Golden Age passes are not accepted.
