Sasquatch Middle Leg #236A Professional Reviews and Guides
"For the views, for the challenge, and for the pure joy of skiing—the Sasquatch Loops take you away from the noise, hustle, and smell of the snowmachines, away from the crowds of fellow skiers, and out into the quiet forest plantations at the base of Mount St. Helens. If the loops are skied in a clockwise direction, you will climb the steepest sections of the trail and find all descents to be gradual. For a challenge, reverse the loop. If you want out early, you can shortcut 3 miles by taking the Middle Loop Trail. Routefinding is the main challenge for skiers doing the entire loop. The blue diamonds that mark the route of the upper sections of the loop are often snow-covered or completely missing, demanding some luck and considerable common sense to make your way around the entire route. Avalanche potential: low"
