Day 7: Dec. 31, 2015
- Cabin Creek Sno-Park
- Kilometers skied: 25K
- Season total: 45K
I’ve always been underwhelmed with Cabin Creek. Too many people, not enough trails. Add to that questionable snow quality because of the low elevation and you have a recipe for mediocre skiing most of the time.
This time was very different.
Plenty of snow, cold temperatures and fairly open trails made for a great day.
The thing Cabin Creek has going for it is accessibility — you’re just an hour away from Seattle via I-90. It makes for an easy half-day trip.
Best of the day was the Viking Trail. After skiing most of the lower trail system, I headed up Mount Amabilis, a killer for any skate skier. I got about halfway up and called it.
Unfinished business — the summit would wait for another day.
