CONC Members Hike, Ski On Sunny Autumn Day

Nordic Club members could pick whether to enjoy autumn or winter on Sunday, Oct. 15.

Linda Frost led 12 hikers on what she describes as a “sunny stroll along the Deschutes River from Aspen to the start of Slough Camp — about six miles.” She reports colorful leaves, sunshine and “good company.”

Meanwhile, three other club members opted to get a jump on winter after seeing the Mt. Bachelor website reported 23 inches of snow at the base of the ski area. The skiers headed to Dutchman Flat and did a couple of large loops around the open area, encountering a handful of other skiers with the same idea.
