Spring in da Cascades

post #1 of 11
Thread Starter 
Well this week anyway. Ventured up the Summit first time this year for a look see. Nice chicken heads.


No problem obeying that sign.


Alien landscape?


Lifty Bob checking the carnage from last weeks storm.


Ravens were out and about.


Random skier from Video.

Not even the Fearless & Foolish would venture out there. So,yeah it was hard to set an edge in it. Good to be back home Petey.

PNW has been nailed by extreme conditions this year.

That stuff looks downright scary.

How's the snowpack holding-up?

Seems like snow pack is holding for now. Not sure how many more 50+ degree days we got on tap though. Some snow would be nice about now.

It was an ice fest at Baker yesterday as well. There's an inversion going on so it looks all crappy and cold in the lowlands, but when you get to the mountain it's clear, sunny and warm. It looks like the weather will change next week and the flakes will fall again.

The downright moronic tried it for a turn or two. Even where it is down to cauliflower sized stuff it is a s close to unskiable as I've ever seen.

Down lower it wasn't as scary but kept you on your toes or should I say edges. Let's try it again Friday,Wildcat,Mt.girl,ect. will be up.

Mt. Hood has similar. Hot days, cold nights. Blue bird days last few (and next few). Highs 40s and even 50s. Refreezes at night. Yesterday, Ski Bowl was slush with boilerplate patches (slow-fast-slow-fast...), but sunny blue sky. Groomed up well. Gorgeous sunset light on Hood summit.

Missed ya'all by a hair today. Saw Slider on the Skyliner chair but by the time I got to the top, he was gone. Nice day though. I'll probably be up again on Sunday, braving whatever crowd decides to show up.
