A foot fell overnight, and it felt like at least another one came down while we skied at Mt Hood Meadows
on Sunday. It was a wild day, but actually bearable as the wind wasn’t
too biting and the visibility pretty much ok. On the flatter blue runs,
there was so much snow that you had to straight-line just to keep
moving. Some of the stashes were insanely deep and pillowly, others the
wind had hammered into a less enticing and somewhat solid form. 4 Bowl
the Mt Hood Express had some of the best and deepest – easily waist
deep at times – snow I found, and it was being continually refreshed by
the wind. And the protected areas off the Hood River Express stayed
lightly tracked all day, making for excellent powdery cruising.
It was quite a day!
Day 6 – 5600m

I wish this photo were me, but it from here – some pics from the day so you get the idea.
