Hackleman Creek Ski Tour
March 5, 1977
This ski trip was changed from Lava Lake to Hackleman Creek Road,
not because of lack of snow in the area but because the road was plowed
for two miles.
Velma had scouted the trip the week before and we were all surprised to
find a road grader at the trail head.
Two miles west of Lava Lake Road is Hackleman Creek Road; we checked this
out and skied south along this road toward Smith Prairie.
We had excellent views of Mt. Jefferson, Three Fingered Jack and Mt. Washington.
The day was warm and sunny—the snow soft, wet and deep.
After skiing about three miles in we had lunch and returned back to the highway.
Twenty-two happy spring skiers had a delightful day ending with a stop for
refreshments on the way home.
Skiers all were
Connie and Cory Burden,
Evelyn and Lee Everett,
Bev and Dave Rogers,
