April 2-3, 1977
This trip was made on what was probably the last weekend of ski touring at Crater
Lake—bare patches are appearing on the rim highway.
We had pleasant weather, with cold mornings and warm afternoons.
Saturday, a short but pleasant trip to camp near the Watchman allowed time to practice
technique and enjoy the scenery.
An early start Sunday, before the weather became hot, allowed the group? (only two
participants on this trip) to take advantage of ideal snow conditions for more touring
to the vicinity of Hileman Peak.
