Trailhead shuttles

Ditch the car and let TranGO do the driving! Our local public tranportation bus service is now offering trips to the upper valley, including the Mazama trailhead. Rides are just $1 and kids are free. You can even bring your bike or skis along for the ride, and drivers can drop you off anywhere along the route it is safe to pull over. TranGO runs all day, Monday-Saturday; check out their website for route and schedule details.

Ski to the Sun

Join Methow Trails and the Methow Valley Nordic Ski Education Foundation for the annual Ski to the Sun Marathon and Relay. The course travels through North America’s largest ski trail network and takes skiers from the tranquil banks of the Methow River to the beautiful mountain vistas at Sun Mountain Lodge. Ski the marathon as an individual or as a relay with up to five other friends or family members. You’ll enjoy food and fun along the way! Register early as this event will sell out.
