Kestrel Vintners' two 80-acre vineyard sites furnish wines culled from a collection of dark, rich reds and crisp, fruity whites—all created and housed within the 15,000-square-foot winery ziggurat. Inside the tasting rooms, guests can sip on an evolving selection of six samplings, with offerings that may include the Lady in Red 9th Edition blend, juxtaposing dark, fruity flavors with rich spice and cedar, or the bright and citrusy 2009 Falcon Series sauvignon blanc. Drinkables are paired with a charcuterie plate, featuring a selection of cheese and cured meats arranged to resemble Italy's boot kicking a giant meatball. Visitors will take home two souvenir glasses to commemorate their grape-fueled adventure, and will receive 20% off any wines available for purchase at the time of their visit.

Methow Valley Sport Trails Association's 120 miles of manicured snow pathways unfurl through a scenic landscape of valleys, forests, and mountains. Adventurers spend three consecutive days carving swathes through the powdered paths, with gently rolling areas for beginners, lengthy climbs for veterans, and loop-the-loops for skiers with rockets strapped to their backs. Coast through the 30-kilometer Methow Community Trail, which traverses the Foster-Twalks Suspension Bridge and bows low to the Methow River. On the machine-groomed tracks of the Mazama Trails, newcomers glide through flat farmlands, and the Sun Mountain Trails have an even mix of easy, intermediate, and difficult runs that all end at the doorstep of a warm hut.
