Hoodoo-Little Nash SnoPark

February 19, 1994

Due to the extra 6-8" of new snow and the appearance of Jean Ridone to supply the second car we were able to accomplish the shuttle needed for this trip. It was a perfect day for this trip, very spring like, with blue sky, puffy clouds and sun. Starting with some bushwhacking and continuing on to a snowmobile road we covered the first part of the trip in good time. Stopping close to Sand Mountain for lunch, we enjoyed the view and the sun. Shortly after lunch we arrived at the sign indicating that Little Nash Sno-Park was 5.8 miles ahead, and from here we had to break trail in turns. The snow consistency was powdery at first, turning to stiff mashed potato as we lost elevation. The one advantage to this was it did add some control to the steepest sections of this trip, so it was fun without being death defying! The last two miles were something of a slog: a little too warm and sunny. But the sun was appreciated by those of us who waited in the parking lot for the shuttle to be completed. No freezing in the parking lot this time! Skiers were Doris Allen, Joshua Ladau, Ray Mikesell, John Pilafian, Jean Ridone and Jane Hackett, leader.
