|Jeanette on Whitewater Road|
With 6 to 12 inches of snow in Salem, I didn't figure I would have to drive far to find a good place to ski. In fact I was planning on only going to Shellburg Falls near Mehama. But on our way we discovered at about Aumsville there was only about 1 inch of snow, the same at Stayton, Mill City, and Gates, it wasn't until we got to Detroit that we were in over 10 inches of roadside snow. So, after Detroit we took advantage of the first available good road to ski, which turned out to be Whitewater Road.
