Bring the whole family for a day of sledding, snowshoeing, building snowmen, playing in the snow, drinking hot chocolate and enjoying an assortment of good food with friends.
The Winter Festival will be family friendly and will take place at the Salt Creek Falls Snow Park, off Highway 58, near Willamette Pass.
I feel that it has enough hills and trails for us to enjoy. I would like to suggest the food be potluck style, as if tailgating in the snow, so to speak. I have a stove and we can make a large hearty pot of chili or a soup.
I will be bringing a stove to cook chili and soup on, a cooler of drinks, and bowls and utensils. Please bring your own additional beverages, snacks, and something to share at the potluck. The event will run from about 9:00AM until 4:00PM. Snow Park Permits are required, and are available for the day. You can get them at REI, Bi-Mart, Berg's, and the Backcountry Ski Patrol's warming hut at the Gold Lake Snow Park.
Gas money depends a little bit on gas mileage of the vehicle and amount of passengers. This trip is about 150 miles round trip. Please be willing to chip in $10 or more for riding with three to four others. The day pass is to be on the vehicle and is about $5 per day, or $20 for a year pass.
I hope to see you there, and be sure to bring your family and friends.
