Sand Mountain

April 23, 1995

Spring snow and sun were the consistent features of this trip. We parked next to the Climb School cars at Hoodoo and skied out to the base of Sand Mountain and back between Hayrick and Hoodoo. Lunch was at the snowmobile road which leaves the burn and goes north to Potato Hill SnoPark. Temperatures were in the 50s after lunch when the snow became slow going uphill and on the level but nice for carving telemarks (Hildreth) or parallel turns (Galitsky). At 2:30 we visited the Climb School on the slopes of Hayrick before heading home through the opening fishing weekend traffic. The leader, Dick Hildreth, and Boris Galitsky (who arrived in Eugene from Moscow, Russia), both especially enjoyed the southern (Mt. Washington, Three Sisters, the Husband, Diamond Peak) and northern (Mt. Jefferson, Three Fingered Jack) panoramas that the backside of Hoodoo presents.
