Three Fingered Jack

February 10, 2007

After a month of dry weather, a weak storm finally came in and dropped a couple of inches of wet snow on top of the hard snow pack. This was felt to be adequate for our trip, so our seven skiers departed for Three Fingered Jack early Saturday morning. Fortunately a few more inches of snow fell at the upper elevations as we skied, which greatly enhanced the enjoyment of the trip. Leaving Santiam Sno-Park at 9:00 a.m., we quickly made it to the west facing bowl below the saddle of Three Fingered Jack’s South ridge. On skins, skiers ascended the bowl halfway before encountering a sheet of blue ice which halted the ascent. Nonetheless, our group got lots of turns while descending the bowl and on the way out. We were somewhat surprised at our speed since we arrived at the cars just after 2 p.m. Skiers included Harold Thompson, Chris Stebbins, Galen Ohmart, John Cooper, Gary Rayor, Dainis Irbe and Steve Goins, leader.
