Northern Fruit has been a steadfast supporter of this website and ‘gets’ the importance of using our regional outdoor resources for all the physical, emotional, and spiritual benefits. NF also recognizes the role WenOut plays in drawing together our outdoor-recreation community so that our collective voice is at the table shaping local land use issues, non-motorized transportation infrastructure, trail systems, and more.
Chelan County P.U.D.
Chelan County PUD operates three hydroelectric dams – two on the Columbia River and one on the Chelan River – that produce clean, renewable, low-cost power for customers in Chelan County and the Northwest. The PUD constructed a network of 14 parks, along with a Visitor Center and Museum at Rocky Reach Dam, enjoyed by both residents and visitors. Each year, the PUD dedicates millions of dollars and thousands of work hours protecting and enhancing fish, wildlife and plant ecosystems. One way the PUD extends its environmental stewardship is through energy-saving and cost-saving conservation programs for its customers.Confluence Health
Confluence Health is an ardent supporter of many local programs designed to enhance public health. The group (comprised of what was formerly the Wenatchee Valley Medical Center and Central Washington Hospital) also supports many efforts that improve or protect local cultural, educational, or environmental resources. Confluence Health finds WenatcheeOutdoors consistent with these priorities. Furthermore, the group knows it’s difficult to recruit medical personnel to smaller population centers like our own. WenatcheeOutdoors, with its rich content and beautiful photos, has proven to be valuable recruitment tool in getting potential employees excited about moving here. Because we align on many fronts, Confluence Health has become one of our most generous supporters.
Outdoor adventures and Subarus – the two go together like skiing and P-tex bases, rock climbing and ropes, hiking and Vibram soles. Head up to Mission Ridge or Stevens Pass on a powder day and two-thirds of the skiers arriving for first turns came in Subarus. Head to the Snow Creek or Colchuck Lake trailheads and half of the parked cars are Subbies. Outdoor types recognize that Subarus are the cars that get you out there and back reliably, comfortably, safely, stylishly, and affordably.
Port of Chelan County
The primary purpose of the Port of Chelan County is economic development. This equates to increasing the net wealth of Chelan County through the attraction and development of private capital investment and to the creation of jobs that will increase average wages. In Washington State the Legislature has given Ports broad authority to promote economic development – Ports can build and operate airports, marine terminals, marinas, railroads, business and industrial parks, and promote tourism.Biosports Physical Therapy
Many of our local outdoor enthusiasts have been or are Biosports patients, including those of us affiliated with this website. The reason is simple: What the outdoor breaks, Biosports fixes. Biosports’ literature is a bit more cerebral and states, “Biosports is a physical therapy clinic staffed with clinicians trained in orthopedic and sports medicine rehabilitation. Our team is professional, skilled, and knowledgeable. We’re proactive about rehabilitation and our extensive knowledge of functional biomechanics makes us effective and efficient in treating all types of pain and dysfunction. We’ll treat the cause and symptoms of your injuries, normalize your movements, speed your healing, and prevent the reoccurrence of your pain.”
Wenatchee Racquet and Athletic Club
The WRAC is a non-profit, member-owned recreational facility established in 1961. The club originated a facility, under the name of Wenatchee Swim & Tennis Club, was developed to meet the community’s need for tennis and swimming and started with 7 outdoor tennis courts, an outdoor pool and clubhouse. Since then, the club has continued to grow and evolve to now offer the valley’s only full service facility with many different activities for all ages and skills, on over 8 acres of facilities as well as 11.3 additional acres available for future growth.
Mission Ridge Ski & Board Resort
Those who stereotype Washington skiing as swampy, haven’t skied Mission Ridge. Lying 40 miles east of the Pacific Crest and with the highest base area in the state, Mission’s snow is more Coloradoan than Cascadian. With Wenatchee 12 miles away and with as much skiable terrain as Stevens Pass, Mission has a hardcore local following. Telling people about snow quality, low crowds, or the amount of terrain, however, is tricky. People really don’t believe all this until they ski it.
The Cascade Loop
The Cascade Loop is Washington State’s Ultimate Road Trip! The byway circles through the North Cascades mountain range, along the majestic Columbia River, past glacier-fed Lake Chelan, through the North Cascades National Park and into the Puget Sound where Orca whales play and beach-combing abounds. Our scenic highway is a path into nature, a road to adventure, and a rest stop at the end of your day with comfortable lodging and delicious Northwest cuisine.
