Ski Historic Glade Trail Day
March 1, 2014
The Mt. Hood Cultural Center and Museum
in Government Camp holds this
annual event on the first Saturday in March, by special permit from the US
Forest Service. The historic Glade Ski Trail is opened and groomed
for this participatory living history event. This once popular
downhill ski trail starts at Timberline Lodge and ends in Government
Camp, a distance of three miles.
Trail was built by the US Forest Service in 1937 as part of the
Timberline Lodge ski complex. The trail roughly follows the route of
the original Blossom Trail, dating to 1888 or earlier. Before the
advent of ski lifts, skiing consisted of either jumping or trail
skiing. Trail skiers climbed on skis equipped with climbing skins,
to the Timberline Lodge area and skied back to Government Camp.
Lloyd Musser, Museum Curator, “ this event helps fulfill our mission
of preserving and interpreting the history of Mt. Hood. This is a
chance for Grandparents to ski with their grandchildren and share
the memories of skiing the Glade Trail, when it was the biggest ski
adventure on Mt. Hood.”
Guest of Honor at this year’s event will be John Wilberding.
John is also this year’s King Winter. Skiyente Ski Club selects a
King Winter every year as a way of honoring an individual who has
made significant contributions to Mount Hood Skiing or snow sports.
The coronation will take place at Charlie’s on February 8th at
Charlie’s Mountain View at 8:00 p.m..
Participants are treated to a red carpet day of skiing. Skiers are
shuttled to Timberline in comfortable airport shuttle vans, escorted
by local guides and senior members of the Mt. Hood Ski Patrol, and
served a hearty lunch.
will run from 9:00 AM to 4:00 PM allowing ticket holders to make
several trail runs. The events of the day are recounted at the Apres ski party, where prizes are awarded. Wearing vintage ski
clothing is encouraged.
Participation is limited to 75 skiers. Event tickets are $100.00 per
person, a portion of which is deductible as a donation to the MHCC&M,
a non-profit organization. Members of Mt. Hood Cultural Center &
Museum receive 10% discount.

A ski challenge at Mt Hood Meadows
to help those suffering from Lou Gherig's disease

Portland resident and famed adventurer Fred Noble has cheated
death many times in more than 50 years of dangerous and extreme
backcountry skiing, paragliding, mountain climbing and wind surfing.
At age 74,
Noble now finds himself in a fight for his life after being
diagnosed in December with ALS, the fatal neurodegenerative muscular
disease best known as Lou Gehrig's Disease.
as a sort-of pied piper for adventure sports, Noble has shifted his
life's mission to raising awareness about ALS and the work of The
ALS Association and its Oregon and Southwest Washington chapter.

more civilized. I have time to get my affairs in order and celebrate
a life well lived with everyone. It’s a new beginning. I’m really
focused to try to find a cure for ALS. This way my spirit will live
Noble is a
ski legend, having pushed the limits of backcountry and extreme
skiing both locally and around the world. He's also famous for his
paragliding excursions and efforts to make wind surfing in the
Columbia River Gorge more accessible to the public. His travels have
brought him to 85 countries, and his indomitable spirit has inspired
and brought joy to countless friends around the globe.

regrets," said Lance Christian, the executive director of the local
ALS Association chapter. "He sees this diagnosis as a new chapter of
his life where he can continue to make a difference."

ALS (Lou Gehrig’s Disease)
Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis is a progressive neurodegenerative
disease that slowly robs a person of the ability to walk, speak,
swallow and, eventually, breathe. With no known cause or cure, a
person can expect to live typically 2 to 5 years from the time of
diagnosis. ALS has no racial, ethnic or socioeconomic boundaries ––
and in only 10 percent of cases there is a family history of ALS.
Today, there are approximately 30,000 people in the US living with
ALS and 5,600 people in the US are diagnosed every year. At any
given time, there are an estimated 500 families living with ALS in
Oregon and Southwest Washington.
