North Loop Trail
December 21, 1995
Five of us turned out on the Thursday before Christmas.
We skied from Ray Benson SnoPark to the shelter on the North Loop Trail.
The snow was old retread snow, a bit thin in places and lumpy … but adequate for an
early season trip.
We simply couldn’t get a fire going at the shelter.
On our trip home we stopped at Belknap Hot Springs for a luxurious, relaxing soak.
Skiers and soakers were Bob Lemon, Barbara Bruns, Joshua Ladau, Barbara Schram
and leader Jean Ridone.
