    Marble Mt. Sno-Park Shelter Burns to Ground

    VANCOUVER, WA – The warming shelter at Marble Mountain Sno-Park burned to the ground early Saturday morning. The log structure was about 20 years old. The shelter was popular with snow-machine enthusiasts and other winter recreationists exploring that area of the Mount St. Helens National Volcanic Monument.

    Mount St. Helens Recreation Technician Randy Peterson said he arrived just in time to see the flame-engulfed structure collapse around 7 a.m. He said the shelter is a total loss. The cause is unknown and is now under investigation.

    “Fortunately, no one was hurt,” Peterson said. “This was one of the nicest snow shelters in the state. It is a big loss to the Forest and local communities.”

    The facility was constructed through a partnership with the State of Washington, snowmobile clubs, local businesses and the Forest Service.

    Mount St. Helens personnel have cordoned off the remains of the shelter and it is still smoldering, reported Peterson. Mable Mt. Sno-Park is open. Visitors are asked to stay back from the fire location.

    For anyone who hasn't been there, it was a beautiful structure. So sad.

      What a bummer thing to happen to such a great shelter. Hopefully they not only find the cause but also find the funds to rebuild.
