Spokane is four-season country, each contributing to the region’s unique lifestyle. Situated between the Rocky and Cascade mountain ranges, Spokane is protected from damp coastal weather like that of Seattle, as well as continental-type winters. The growing season extends from mid-April to mid-October.
Summer weather is ideal for enjoying the many mountain and lake recreational areas. Winter weather includes occasional snowfalls of several inches. Nearby mountainous winter sport areas receive a great deal more snow and sometimes enjoy a five- to six-month season.
