Hughes’ National Park Service career spanned more than 40 years before his retirement, the majority as head ranger at Hurricane Ridge.
1,000 miles a year
He had a goal of skiing 1,000 miles every winter and continued that streak until recently.
He will talk about the history of skiing in the Olympics, the saga of the controversial Waterhole Ski Hut — the shelter, built by skiers in 1968 near the Ridge, was torn down by Olympic National Park workers last fall — and about winter search-and-rescue operations.
The Second Saturday Series is put on by the Hurricane Ridge Winter Sports Club.
Proceeds benefit the Hurricane Chasers, a program providing opportunities for snowboarding and winter ecology instruction for some youths in the Boys & Girls Clubs of the Olympic Peninsula.
Hurricane Chasers is a cooperative effort of the clubs as well as Hurricane Ridge Winter Sports Club, SnowSchool, The North Face Explore Fund and Olympic National Park.
Additional assistance is provided by employees of NatureBridge.
