Midnight Lake

February 16, 1980

The topic of discussion before we left was snow — Would there be enough? The closer we got to the pass, our doubts increased. There were only patches at Salt Creek Falls. I wondered if this would be a hiking trip rather than a ski trip. At the trailhead there was some snow, so we strapped on our skis and headed out under a cloudy sky. The snow was a little thin in places but not too bad until we got to Burley Bluff. The trail was bare except for the two inch layer of ice. We walked this section (200 yards) until we hit better snow at the first trail junction. We had enough snow from there to Midnight Lake. After a quick lunch at the lake (windy and cold), we had a nice run back to Pengra Rd. We chose to ski out the road to miss the ice along the trail and walked up the highway to the cars. Back in Eugene by 4:15 p.m.

Skiers were: Bea Fontana, Bob Haberman, M. A. Holser, Mike McClellan, Wes Prouty, Parker Riddle, Rick Thompson, Ruth and Darryl Wisner, Pat Zustiak and Randy Zustiak (leader).
