With blue skies shining, five skiers started out at 9:00 AM on the Pacific Crest Trail from Willamette Pass towards Rosary Lakes. Our first goal was Middle Rosary Lake where we met Frank, who had spent the previous night at Maiden Peak Shelter. All of us added skins to our skis and headed up towards Maiden Peak following a compass bearing through the forest. The 7818 foot summit was reached by all skiers at 1:30 PM with a mild breeze blowing. Lunch was eaten just below the top in a more sheltered spot. The downhill fun began with countless telemark turns through the open glades and trees back to Rosary Lakes. Snow conditions were great above 6000 feet, deteriorating to hard pack at the lakes. Josh and Frank returned via the downhill run at the ski resort, while the rest took the very fast Crest trail back. We all arrived at the cars and were on our way back to Eugene by 5:00 PM.Members: Harold Thompson, Sam Miller, Frank Chemotti. Nonmembers: Joshua Ladau, Fritzi Grevstad, John Kline.
