Sandy MacDonald, LCSW Specializing in Adolescent, Young Adult and Family Therapy
My goal is to help adolescents and young adults use their special talents, unique qualities to find solutions to problems, enhance their relationships, build confidence, and develop a healthy sense of self. In my office along with various outdoor settings, I strive to create a safe, caring, and supportive environment, and then combine that with a seasoned clinical approach. 754 NW Broadway Street, Suite 201, Bend. firstname.lastname@example.org
mistake the other shelter in the park, which is still listed as under construction on some maps and missing entirely on others, with the Mountain View shelter. The other shel- ter is a three-sided rustic shelter with the fourth wall open to the elements. A repre- sentative from the Detroit Ranger District said you can camp in it but, that shelter does not have a sleeping loft or a wood burning stove.
WILLAMETTE PASS AREA Gold Lake Snow Park, West View Shelter
• Concerts • Weddings
• Community Events
& Bechtel Shelter: About 1:45 hours from Bend, the park is minutes from Willamette Pass Ski Resort on the edge of the 55,000 acre Diamond Peak Wilderness. This snow park has a number of Nordic and snow- shoe trails. The Pacific Crest Trail also cuts through the park and heads toward Diamond Peak. Nordic trails and shelters are well marked, but markers on the PCT can be difficult to follow in winter beyond tracked areas. The two area shelters are rustic, three-wall shelters with the fourth wall open, but with substantial snowfall, the open wall can be protected somewhat by snow. Both shelters have lofts that sleep four, though more could sleep on gravel at ground level. They are also stocked with wood and contain wood burning stoves. West View Shelter is a quick one-mile hike from the parking lot; Bechtel is slightly more than two miles.
Fuji Shelter: Another rustic shelter near
Willamette pass. Fuji is accessible from the Salt Creek Falls Sno-park. Access entails an arduous roughly four-mile hike with substantial elevation gain. The payout is an impressive view of Diamond Peak.
Maiden Peak Shelter: An enclosed shelter
that sleeps 15. It is located behind Willamette Pass Ski Resort and accessible by Nordic ski trails. It is in close proximity to backcountry ski opportunities on maiden peak.

Snow Shelter Camping Tips 1. Know the trails; bring a map or
GPS and extra batteries. 2. Follow a plan. Don’t rush or
leave late; that’s how mistakes happen.
3. Check the weather forecast.
Not knowing can be trouble. 4. Look behind you at trail inter-
sections, so you remember what the return trail looks like. –Alex Gonzales, Deep Survival.
5. Pack light; pack warm, but
pack efficient. Ask yourself if you really need it. Melt snow to carry less drinking water. Paper waste is burnable, you have to carry out the rest.
6. Consider dragging a sled if
your pack is too heavy. 7. Wood-burning stoves are
great to cook on. 8. Warm boots= warm feet.
Paying extra is worth it. And wear synthetic or wool socks, NO COTTON! (It’s the death cloth). Wearing sweats to bed will keep your sleeping bag warmer.
9. Dress light for the hike or
you’ll overheat. 10. It’s okay to wear the same
clothes more than one day. It’s camping; you can stink.
Healthy Adventures Await!
