Redtop Mountain

Sunday, February 4, 2018
Leader: Harold Thompson
Xski: 8 miles, 2100 ft (Difficult)

Driving over Willamette pass toward Crescent Lake Sno-Park reminded our group of five how little snow there was this season, especially after a week of warm rainy weather. So we were pleasantly surprised to find just enough snow to strap on our skis right at the car and begin our ski to Redtop Mountain. Other than a couple of pine needle covered bare spots, the snow was continuous the entire way. We left the car at 9:00 AM and were on the summit right at noon. Lunch was eaten with views all around on this partly sunny, good weather day. With plenty of snow on the upper slopes, and spring-like snow conditions, it was all fun on the way back down. We were back to the car by 2:45 PM, where we soaked up the warmth of the afternoon sun while even more of the limited snow pack was melting before our eyes.
