Midnight Lake via Westview Loops

December 29, 2001

A light and very soft snow was falling as nine of us left Gold Lake Snow park at 10:15. First we skied up to Westview Shelter, then up the hill to the Odell View Point on the PCT. Next we went south on the PCT to Pengra Pass. The route was all downhill, and quite icy, so we carefully navigated the speedy slopes. At Pengra Pass the snow got soft again, and we headed up to the lake, where we ate lunch at 12:45. On the descent, we took the trail that leads to Bechtel Shelter, and along the way Josh Ladau showed us how to do perfect telemark turns. From Bechtel we made a speedy descent back down the road and arrived at the cars by 2:45. Skiers were Bob Alderman, George Baitinger, *Al Johnson, Steve Johnson, *Tamara Johnson, Josh Ladau, Ed Lichtenstein, *Elisabeth Renich and Mark Slipp(leader). *non members.
