Willamette Pass Ski Day

January 19, 2006

This year’s Downhill Skiing group included four Obsidians. Two other hopefuls were not able to go due to a lack of snow drivers. Road conditions were packed snow, not too icy. The day was beautiful, with occasional snow showers. The skiing was good where the slopes were groomed properly. Unfortunately, many of the intermediate slopes were not groomed or only had a narrow swath of groomed trail, leaving heavy powder on the rest of the trail! Why this was done is a mystery to me. Also, the high speed lift to the top and backside of the mountain was not operational until around noon. Despite these glitches, the group had a delightful day of downhill fun. Participants were Rick Ahrens (our most capable driver), Laurie Reed, Chris Shuraleff, and leader, Peggy Lee Mathes.
