February 26, 1978
We left about 7:30 a.m. with a light rain and heavy overcast.
The weather broke east of Santiam Summit; it was a pleasure to see
blue sky, clouds and sunshine.
We were on skis by 10:00 near the snowgate.
We encountered occasional snow flurries, but it was an easy trip
with the faster skiers arriving half an hour before the other.
All arrived about noon and had a trail lunch.
The clouds were continuing to pour over the summit so we missed the
view of Mt. Washington.
Also, since this was a windy point, after a quick look around and some
picture taking, it was time to head for Sisters and those coffee rolls
someone kept mentioning.
