On a flawless weeek ten students from Catlin Gabel school took the Nordic ski challenge and skied from Timberline Lodge down to Government Camp.  Twice!  With ideal snow conditions, these students, many of them new to the sport of cross country skiing skied down the Glade Trail all the way to Government Camp.  It was so much fun they decided to do it again.  Admittedly on the first run there were a few falls, several per minute actually, but soon everyone got the hang of it and they made the 2000 foot descent with style and whoops of laughter.  That night everyone stayed in the Huckleberry Inn and wandered beneath the stars through this Alpine village.  On Sunday the group completed a ten mile ski tour in the Bennett Pass area east of Mt. Hood.
