Nine skiers and one snowshoer [Scott] piled into three vehicles and left
Eugene at 9am for the Gold Lake snowpark. We were on the trail shortly after eleven.
There was light overcast and the snow was uneven but rarely
icy. We skied down the road to the Gold lake shelter, took a look at the lake
and then lunched at the shelter. The return was by way of the
Marilyn lakes trail which runs through the woods. This was more challenging [rated
“more difficult”] but more enjoyable as it afforded views of the two Marilyn lakes
and some nice woods. Our one snowshoer kept up with us nicely,
especially in the woods. We were back to the cars before three and back to
Eugene before dark. Enjoying the trip were nonmembers: Beth and Ken
Kodama, Susan Rose, and Scott Thames; and members Carol Petty, Sharon Ritchie, Helen
Liguori, Marriner Orum, Norma Lockyear, and Ed Lichtenstein [leader].
