It's time to have family fun in the mountains.
The 35th annual White Pass Winter Carnival is set for March 2 and 3 at the White Pass ski area. Spokesperson Kathleen Goyette says it's a great time for family and friends to have fun in the mountains but it's also a time to raise money for the Children's Miracle Network through the CMN Ski for Kids training and race. "If your kids are riding the chairlift and they're ready for a challenge. It's a great opportunity to learn something have some fun and do something great for the kids in the valley."
The highlight of the weekend is the giant snow castle. More than 2 and a half stories tall with 6 to 7 thousand square feet of tunnels and slides for the kids to ride tubes off the castle. Plus there's a torchlight parade at 7:00 p.m. Saturday followed by a huge fireworks show over the snow.
The White Pass tubing area will be open as well.
