For example, there are six Sno-Parks (parking lots in the wilderness areas where snow has been groomed into trails for use by snowmobilers), there’s miles of groomed Nordic cross-country ski trails and there’s downhill skiing. . .

And of course there is wine – 24 wineries are scattered among vineyards that carpet the surrounding hillsides. In the winter the vineyards might be bare, but the tasting rooms are often open on weekends or by appointment.
There’s a lot to do and see in Chelan during the cold, crisp winter months. The lead story in the Seattle Times travel section yesterday tells you about its eateries, stores, and outdoor activities. There’s a ton to do there; take my word for it. . .I wrote the article! And I was on the road and didn't even see it until tonight. So take a look and be sure to click through the 30-photos that accompany the story on line!
