20 months straight skiing

Although it looks like late September in the mountains, I still managed to convince myself to head up to Mount Hood and get my July turns in. Never a bad day skiing, I had to hike for an hour before I hit the snowline, and then another 40 minutes above it to get to the top of what’s left of the Palmer “Glacier.”

2 minutes of skiing. It was incredible as usual. I’m hoping I can get August and September in, it’s going to be rough! Here’s a couple photos!

Poor, lonely sno-cat. The dirty run out ends right behind this machine.

Dismal snow conditions didn’t deter me; never a bad day on skis!
