Beale Prairie

January 29, 1984

Sixteen optomistic skiers and snowshoers met at the SEHS parking lot at 8 a.m. Sunday morning. As soon as fees were collected and everyone had a ride, we were off in pursuit of good snow and blue skies. We were able to drive to within ½ mile of Rd #730. We soon had skis and snowshoes attached and when the leader was finally able to catch up, we made introductions around. This all took place about 10:30 a.m. under beautiful blue skies and, according to Wes, 50° temperature. We followed Rd #730 all the way to the top of Beale Prairie and gathered around the shelter for lunch about 1:15 p.m. The Prairie was just perfect for practicing on your downhill turns. The view of the Cascades was taken in by all before starting back down to the cars. Although I had forgotten about the up and downs to the road, their was still plenty of good downhill skiing on the way out.

We had four snowshoers and 12 skiers completing the trip. The leader came in last—arriving back at the cars at about 5 p.m. We couldn’t have asked for better weather. An all around enjoyable day for Pete Cecil, Gladys Grancorvitz, Pat and Kim Henderson, George Jobanek, Dot Leland, Joe Lowry, Dave Predeek, Wes Prouty, Fred and Jean Richardson, Jerold Williams, Tracy Forrest, Lee Lyon, and Lori & Mike Wright, leader.
