Mountain View Loop

February 14, 1999

The eight-mile Mountain View Loop that starts at the Maxwell SnoPark is a beautiful trip any time. But it was especially nice this Valentine’s Day for our group of ten strong skiers. The snow was great, the temperature moderate and the sunshine, when it broke through the dramatic clouds, was glorious. The route passes the new Maxwell Butte Shelter the Forest Service built recently. Unlike the three-sided structures at other sites, this is an actual cabin, and a very nice one too. It is open for winter use and offers first-class accommodations and a wonderful view of the Cascades. We were only able to see part of Three Fingered Jack and the top of Jefferson, but on a clear day you can see the Sisters and Mt. Washington as well. We skied the eight-mile-plus loop, with a break for lunch and several long rests, and still made it back to the SnoPark before two o’clock! Lead by John Pegg, skiers were Lana Lindstrom, Dick Hildreth, John Hegg, George Baitinger, Sue Sullivan, Doug Nelson, Steve Goins, Doug Quirk and Bob Haberman.
