Santiam Pass, Skyline Trail

February 10, 1974

This trip was fairly rugged and only approximately followed the route of the Skyline Trail. The first 1½ miles were through thick timber, but many skiers before us had broken a trail. The last 1½ miles were mostly through open meadow, culminating in one large meadow overlooking Booth Lake and affording a splendid view south. We took advantage of the long, open slopes of this meadow to practice our downhill technique.

Variable snow conditions were difficult but were more than compensated for by the magnificent summer-like weather and the marvelous views through crystal clear air. Making this trip were: Dick Casey, Pat Delsman, Steve Northrup, Wes Prouty and the leader, Jack Nitzel.
