Strap on your cross-country skis and glide under the moonlight this winter at Sleeping Lady Resort in Leavenworth.

You have three chances to attend the resort’s full-moon dinner and ski excursions: on Friday, on Jan. 26 and on Feb. 25. Meet on the Icicle River Trail at 5 p.m. for moonlit cross-country skiing, then head to the O’Grady’s Pantry and Mercantile Dinner for seasonal stews, desserts and nonalcoholic beverages by the fire until 8 p.m. The dinner is $15 for adults and $7.50 for kids.

There’s no extra charge to ski at night, but you need a pass to hit the slopes at the resort. Nordic trail passes (including the Icicle River Trail) are $145 for the season or $15 per day for adults, $10 for ages 7 to 17, and free for ages 6 and younger.

If you show your trail pass at the dinner, you can get $3.50 draft beers and $5.75 glass pours of Magpies Nest Red or Nest White.

To make reservations, call 509-548-6344 or email reservations@sleepinglady.com. For more information go to www.skileavenworth.com.
