Trolley Trail NORTH bike ride

 
May 18 and June 3, 2023.  The entire trolley trail is a bit too long, so we spit it into two halves, both of them starting from Milwaukie.  The North part of the trail goes to the pedestrian Tilikum Bridge in Portland.  Retruning back to Milwaukie, we rode along the opposite bank of the WIllamette River.

Ski the Glade Trail Day

 
March 4, 2023.  The first Saturday in March is the Glade Trail Day, a tradition for almost 20 years. It is organized by the Mt. Hood Museumin Government Camp, in cooperation with Timberline SKi Area and the Forest Service.  Participants use shuttle buses for transportation up to Timberline, and then they ski the whole 3 miles of the Glade Trail down to Government Camp. This is how people skied before there were any ski lifts.  This is the only day of the whole year that the Glade trail is groomed and patrolled.

Mt. Shasta  & Mt. Ashland ski trip

 
March 17 - 19, 2023.  A drive to trip, everyone driving their own car or carpooling. At Mt. Shasta Ski Park, some of us skied the newly opened terrain on Gray Butte.  Not everyone went there, because access to it is difficult.  It involves either skiiing a steep and ungroomed hillside or taking a long walk with a steep uphill at the end.   At Mt. Ashland, some of us witnessed the ski patrol setting off explosives at the top of The Bowl, to prevent avalanches.

McCall trip - Brundage & Tamarack

 
February 26 - March 1, 2023.  This was a drive to trip, everyone driving their own car or carpooling. It was a flexible trip, but most people spent 2 days skiing at Brundage Mountain and 2 days skiing at Tamarack.

This year, Snwovana was held at The Convention Center.
