Mt. Bachelor video, Dec 30th, 2010. Epic snow!

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 

This was shot on December 30th by Max_501.  There was at least 42" of new snow, and the top 18" or so was as good as it gets in Oregon.  Temps were in the low single digits. The terrain I am skiing on is not super steep, but probably 32-35 degrees or so, and the snow is so deep, I am barely turning and moving at times!  It was one of those times where you just wanted to rip, but couldn't go any faster; we need a steeper mountain, with KT-22 like pitches.   It doesn't get any better around here though; this was an epic day.  We were finding basically untouched snow, right under the main lifts, at 2pm in the afternoon!

Great video.  It has been awesome at Bachelor this week.  I did not get to hit as much of the powder as I would have liked as I was skiing with the family. Still,  very fun!

Really does look epic..  Nice conditions.

So Mt. Bachelor is mostly low angle skiing?  I could have sworn from other shots I've seen from Max_501 that there are some parts of the mountain with more technical lines and steeper skiing.

Things are looking good in the PNW...and sierra.  I don't have a video cam currently, but no excuse for not snapping some pics.

There are, but they don't open up much until the spring, or if we get a dry spell.

Crazy.  Can't wait to visit there in February for the first time.
