For only $2 (or just $1.50 if you prepay for 20 tickets), you can ride the bus from Sandy to Skibowl, Government Camp, or Timberline. Catch the bus right on Hwy. 26, at a park and ride bus stop half way between Champion Way and 362nd (which is the Fred Meyer traffic light in Sandy). Turn into Champion Way to park at the Information Center.  The most convenient bus starts at 7:45 am and arrives at Skibowl at 8:32 and at Timberline at 9 am. Click here for the complete schedule.

 

Also note that Timberline runs its own hourly shuttle between Government Camp (stopping at the Mt. Hood Brewing Co., at Collins Lake Resort, and at the Chevron station at the top end of Govy). This shuttle runs only on weekends and holidays. Approximately once an hour to make the full round trip.

Express Rental & Service shop in Rhododendron

John Hanson (formerly of the Ski Chalet) is helping Skibowl with a new project in Rhododendron: an Express Rental & Service outlet with retail as well. He says:
"One of our target customers is the high school/ club racer looking to maintain a competitive advantage. Racers can drop their skis off after training nights and pick them up ready to go on race day. We are currently set up to do edge tunes and hot waxes."

Hours are:  Mon-Tue: 8-5,  Wed-Fri: 8-9pm,

                 Sat:  7-6pm   and   Sun: 8-6pm.

Next season, they plan to stock race accessories as well.
Stop by anytime. The location is  on the right hand side of Hwy 26 in Rhododendron across from the Village Market.

Phone 844-200-RENT (7368).

 

Learn to Ski - Or Help Someone 

Our club now has a new page devoted just to beginner skiers, and we need volunteers who are willing to help newcomers to the sport. This is a win-win for everybody. By brining in new people to the slopes, the ski areas get more customers, our club gets more members, and the newcomers get their wings (their skis or boards)!

 

 

Membership renewal.  Please renew your club membership in the Fall (September, October, or early November). This is also the best time to sign up for a ski trip with the club. It is best to renew in person at the annual Ski Fair or at our annual Kickoff Party. If you do it by mail, simply print print the Dough Transmittal form and mail it in. You can find it on our Membership page and on the Forms & Docs page.

b)  Ski trips to other ski areas in the West  -- see TRIPS page.

To get a better view of what our club does, please check the ABOUT US page and the PHOTOS page, which shows almost everything we did in the past year(s). Each season, we start to build a new Photos page, so if you are checking us out at the beginning of the season, check out one of the previous year's Photos page, which will be more complete.

Idaho bicycle trip

Trail of the Coeur d'Alenes

72 mile paved trail across the Idaho panhandle

PLUS

Route of the Hiawatha trail

15 miles of smooth dirt road through tunnels and over railroad trestles

Click here for map

 

September 1 - 5, 2018.  (Saturday - Wednesday) - Labor Day weekend plus 2 days.  Drive your own car or carpool with someone. We will definitely need to carpool within Idaho to shuttle between the different segments of the trail. The more cars we have, the more flexible we'll be.

 

The CDA Trail is a72 mile long paved bicycle trail from the town of Mullan (near the Montana border) to the town of Plummer (south of Couer d'Alene).  We will definitely see at least: egrets, osprey, and grebes (birds that can swim under water), plus deer, wild turkeys, and maybe some moose too, if we are lucky. Moose are the most elusive.

 

Optiona attractions along our path include: eat at the "Snake Pit" in Enaville, visit a Railroad Museum, and/or visit a Silver mine near historic Wallace. Also, see the Center of the Universe in Wallace, Idaho.

 

Lodging in the town of Kellogg for 4 nights.  includes: lodging,  breakfast, and an indoor swimming pool with a hot-tub. Cost per room = $109 on Saturday night and then $79 on all the other nights. That's a total of $346 per room (plus tax) for all 4 nights. Split between two people, that's $173 per person for all 3 nights

 

Lodging in the town of Harrison is optional on our last night there. Most of us will just 3 nights in Kellogg and1 night in Harrison (for the basic 5-day trip).  You can also stay one more night in Harrison if you wish to extend your trip to 6 days or more, either to bike some more or to just enjoy the lake. Cost per room with our group discount is $135 per room per night, and the number of rooms is very limited.

 

Note that the Harrison hotel doesn't offer breakfast and doesn't have a hot tub or swimming pool.  The town itself, the park, the lake and the nearby river are beautiful, but we can and will enjoy it during the daytime anyway.  We don't have to sleep there if the price seems high.

 

Please let Emilio know your lodging preferences.

Also, contact Emilio if you need a roommate. We'll pair you up if you don't already have someone you want to share the room with.

 

Cycling is free on the CDA Trail, but the Hiawatha trail charges about $20 per person (which includes a bus ride back to the starting point).

 

1. DEPARTURE: It is recommended that we all plan on leaving Portland by about 8 am on Saturday (Sept. 1), especially if we want to allow for a couple of hours to ride the Sacajawea trail in the Tri-Cities. Also, leaving early in the day would give us time to check into our hotel in Kellogg, freshen up, and go out to dinner together, where we can start planning the next day.

 

2. TRANSPORTATION: We’ll drive up in our own cars. Some carpooling is possible, but don’t overfill your car with passengers and luggage. Try to keep your car half empty, so we can take turns at shuttling people up and down the trail. Unless you have a very large minivan or SUV, ideally each car should have no more than 2 people in it and the ability to carry 3 bicycles + at least 1 additional temporary passenger.
 

3. BICYCLE: You don’t need a mountain bike. The 72 miles of the Trail of the Coeur d’Alenes are perfectly paved and smooth, perfect even for racing bikes with those super-skinny tires. The 15-mile Hiawatha trail is not paved, but it is still smooth enough for a road bike with medium tires (just maybe not the skinny racing ones).
 

4. BRAKES: You definitely need good brakes for the first few miles from Mullan to Wallace, on the eastern end of the trail, which we will ride in the downhill direction. Also, for the western end of the trail from Plummer to Harrison. Most of the stuff in between is flat. So, to be on the safe side, please make sure your bicycle brakes are not totally worn out!
 

5. THE TRAILS:

a) The 72 mile Trail of the Coeur d’Alenes between Plummer and Mullan is really nicer, paved, and includes facilities (picnic tables, restrooms, etc.)See a diagram showing the elevation gain along this trail.  Note that the middle part is almost completely flat, ad the two segments on each side we will do in a downhill directions.
 

b) The Hiawatha Trail is about 15 miles of unpaved compressed gravel road. This trail goes through several tunnels and passes over several railroad trestle bridges. Most of it is fun, except for the very first tunnel, which is 1.7 miles long. You need to have lots of lights to ride through it. At a minimum, one light on the bike and another on your head. Bring the brightest flashlights you can find. Have more lights if you can. The tunnel walls are sooty black from the coal-powered steam locomotives, and it is very hard to see. Even if you don’t have a problem riding through it, it’s not really fun. I would recommend taking your car over the 5 mile forest road that goes over the hill bypassing the tunnel. There is plenty of parking space on the other side of the tunnel.

 

c) An unpaved, packed gravel road between the Hiawatha and the CDA Trail. This connecting road crosses the Idaho/Montana border at Lookout Pass ski area, and it totals about 20 miles. Alternatively, one could simply park the car at the Lookout Pass ski area and ride the approximately 12 miles to Mullan, where the paved CDA Trail begins. But beware, it is easy to accidentally take the wrong road and not realize it for many a mile. This is not part of the official trail and it is not marked at all. We are NOT planning to ride this unmarked and unpaved section. But if you want to do it, just get an early start, so you can ride this section and then meet the rest of the group.
 

d) The Sacajawea Heritage trail, a 23-mile bicycle loop near the confluence of the Columbia and Snake rivers at the Tri-cities (Richland, Pasco, Kennewick) in Washington. This is about half way to Idaho, and a perfect place for a break from the driving. At least some of us will do this on on the drive up to Idaho. We don't need to do the whole 23 miles. Even just 5 - 10 miles through a riverside park would be fun.
 

THE ITINERARY

=============
The general plan would be to do it as follows

We plan to ride socially, together, at a moderate pace.:

 

Saturday. Just drive to Idaho, with an optional stop at the Sacajwea trail in Kennewick, WA.  Stay the night in Kellogg, ID.


Sunday, Ride the Hiawatha Trail.  First take our cars for abot 4 miles into Montana, take the "Taft" exit off of I-90, and then dfollow a dirt road for another mile or two to the start of the trail just before the long tunnel.  Stop near the tunnel just to pay your access fee, but then feel free to drive your car another 5 miles over the hill to the other side of the tunnel.

Stay the night in Kellogg, ID.

 

Monday. CDA part 1.  Mullan to Kellogg.  Total of 18 miles. Stop at the half-way point to spend some time in historic Wallace, where we could visit the railroad museum and/or the silver mine and/or a brothel that is now a museum. Also have lunch somewhere in town. Then ride the remaining 10 miles back to Kellogg. If you wish, double the mileage from 18 to 36 miles by riding uphill to Mullan and then return to Kellogg down the same trail.

Stay the night in Kellogg, ID.
 

Tuesday. CDA part 2. Kellogg to Harrison. Ride 38 miles, almost all flat. This includes includes all of of the wilderness area, where we are most likely to see wildlife. Also, let's stop for a nice brunch at the “Snake Pit” in Enaville - which is not too far from Kellogg (maybe only about 5 miles or so). The bulk of the ride would be after that breakfast stop. You are guaranteed to see at least egrets, eagles, and grebes (birds that can swim under water). If we are lucky, we might also see some moose. We might even take a quick swim in the river we'll be riding along.

We could stay the night in either in Kellogg or in Harrison.

 

Alternative for this Tuesday ride. Instead of shuttling our cars back and forth and riding our bikes all 38 miles, we could skip a portion of the trail closest to Kellogg and instead focus on the wilderness part that is closer to Harrison.  To do this, we would load up all our gear and simply move all our cars to Harrison early in the morning. Then, we would start the bike ride from Harrison and ride east (toward Kellogg) for about the 15 most interesting miles, perhaps to Medimont. And then reverse direction and ride back to Harrison.  By doing the wilderness portion of the trail twice, we would increase our chances of seeing some wildlife.

 

Even people staying on in the Kellogg hotel can do the same.  Drive their cars and bikes to Harrison in the morning, then ride the western half of the trail (Harrison to Medimont and back), and at the end of the day, they'll have their cars in Harrison for an easy return drive to Kellogg.
 

Wednesday. CDA part 3. Plummer to Harrison.  Ride the last 16 miles on the west end of the trail. Maybe take a swim in Lake Coeur d'Alene.  Then have lunch in Harrison, and head back home. If we leave by about 1 pm, we can be back in Portland by about 8 or 9 pm.   If we leave by 2 pm, we can be home by about 9 or 10 pm.

 

Optionally, you could stay on in Harrison for an additional night or two, and then enjoy the park, the lake, maybe rent a kayak or canoe, or go swimming.

 
Let Emilio know your preferences for driving, carpooling, biking, and lodging (room-mates, etc.), and I will do my best to match you up and pair you up (unless you already have a partner). We will have 2 people per room, just like on any of our ski trips.

 

Everyone please call the hotels directly to make your own reservations.  See the left column for hotel reservations info. Make sure to tell them you are part of the Mountain High group to get the group discount.
