| Motorized Transport to Trailhead:||Car|

Ascent Trip ReportA wonderful day out, more difficult than I expected. Easy skiing from the car to High Prairie trailhead on snowmobile tracks. At the trailhead, though, the tracks petered out and it was trail-breaking uphill through deep powder and dense trees. The last mile of travel took as much time as the previous five.
Wonderful views from the summit, down past Jefferson and Washington to the Three Sisters and Broken Top, north to Rainier, Adams, St. Helens, great shots of Hood across the valley, and the east-side desert.
