Methow Valley ... one thing to do on your way to Winthrop

Stop and get some things at the grocery store in Carleton.  One of the most devastated retail businesses from the fires and subsequent flood and mudslide was the Carleton store. It's an awesome place with good stuff, not your standard "mini-mart".  The Carleton store was closed during the fires, then closed again when the road got covered by a mudslide and yet again when the Transportation Department needed to fix the nearby bridge.
This is one small way you can help our beloved Methow Valley recover.

The Washington Ski Touring Club is a Seattle-based, recreation-oriented club of about 360 members who organize nordic classic, skate, telemark,and backcountry touring ski trips.  We also have a monthly meeting with interesting programs on equipment, tours, weather, ski destinations, etc. (October to May).


We love to ski and encourage you to join us!  Our monthly meetings and potluck events are open to all. However, much of our website such as Multi-Day Trips, Discussion Forums, Nordic Patrol, and Weekend Weather forecasts are available only to Members.
