49° North, one of the last affordable resorts in the Western U.S.
The resort is located 15 minutes east of the small town of Chewelah. The 2325 skiable acres at 49 Degrees N. will offer you endless opportunities to ski groomers, bumps, powder, and trees. The wide variety of terrain caters to all skiers, beginner, intermediate, and advanced. On a bluebird powder day, you will have sweeping views of beautiful valleys and nearby mountains and hillsides as you make your way down Silver Ridge deciding which run to take next.
Lodging will be at the Nordlig Motel in Chewelah, where we have enjoyed staying the past 10 years. We have reserved all 14 rooms for the S’no Joke ski club. Any un-booked rooms will be released on March 1st. It will be up to individual participants to call “Ande” @ 509-935-6704 (Nordlig front desk) and finalize the room booking by securing it with your name and a credit card.
– Check-in Thursday March 25, Check-out Sunday March 28. Ski Friday and Saturday… Sunday is optional. Rate: $65 per night + tax ** room with 2 queens is $70 per night. Senior discounts available.
Do you want to shorten or extend the visit? You can do that when you talk with the motel. 49°N is closed on Wednesdays & Thursdays, and for deeper discounts... Mondays and Tuesdays are 1/2 price; see the 49 Degrees N. website for promotion details, or contact your trip leaders.
When you call to make your reservation, identify yourself as a S’no Joke Ski Club member, and choose from the following bedding configurations.
Top Floor: 7 rooms: For Singles rooming together, Two rooms have two queens each, and One room has a double and a twin. For Couples, Four rooms have one queen each.
Bottom Floor: 7 rooms: For Singles rooming together, Three rooms have a double and a twin. For Couples, Four rooms have one queen each.
Regarding singles rooming together… Arrange for your own roommate; the club will not assign roommates due to the Covid-19 situation. The three rooms on the bottom floor with a double and a twin are being held specifically for single supplement requests, and will likely go quick. Provided the trip sells out, the other recommended nearby motel is the Chewelah Motel & RV park that has provided for overflow accommodations in the past. However, we do not have any pre-reserved rooms at this location. If the current trip registration is sold out, call your trip leaders to discuss vacancies at alternative lodging locations.
Buy your lift tickets with the Ski & Stay package at the motel, for a better lift ticket price than the rates we were able to negotiate directly with the resort for group and/or senior rates. The ski area is currently pre-selling tickets with the intention of limiting mountain capacity to 25% of normal. Discounted Lift Tickets are $54 + tax.
Regarding the discounted tickets, you will call “Ande” at the Nordlig front desk, and she will take your payment information. If there are concerns the mountain may close due to Government mandated orders, or the weather is forecast to be severely inclement, check the news, then check the 10-day forecast and make your purchase by March 18th to ensure your space on the hill. This season they have sold out on Jan 9, 16, 17, 23, 30... and February 6, 20.
Lift ticket refunds are left up to the discretion of the ski area. Lodging refunds- If cancelled after March 18th, you will be liable for your first night’s reservation, unless cancellation is due to a mandated ski area closure.
