part of Mt. Hood Skibowl
East. The name Multorpor is
a contraction of Multnomah
county, Oregon, and Portland.

see page 5.) RIGHT: Emilio
Trampuz posts one of the
safety signs marking the safety
boundary on the south side of

beyond this boundary will have

likely having to spend a cold
and wet night in the woods
before finally reaching a road
several miles lower down. photo
