The trip began at the Willamette Pass Ski Area parking lot. Conditions were excellent with powdery snow. We proceeded to climb toward the cabin via the PCT on the Rosary Lakes Trail then ascended the switchbacks leading to the Maiden Peak Saddle. However, before reaching the saddle we headed North just after the Junction with the Maiden Lake Trail. The terrain was rolling and took us through some pumice flats. Everyone was excited about a new route to the cabin that cut off the climb to the saddle. About half a mile from the cabin we intersected the PCT and we followed the blue diamonds to the cabin. The return trip was especially enjoyable given the snow conditions. A good time was had by all and we arrived back in Eugene by 5:30 p.m. Jan Anselmo co-led the trip along with Lyndell Wilken.
Skiers were Jan Anselmo, John Cooper, Dick Hildreth, Bill McWhorter, Sam Miller, Charlie VanDeusen and Lyndell Wilken.Members: Sam Miller, Bill McWhorter, Dick Hildreth, Jan Anselmo, John Cooper, Charlie Van Deusen, Lyndell Wilken.
