Title: Mt. Hood South Summit/Shred October 22, 2016
Post by: Marshalltb on 10/23/16, 11:33 PM
Hi ya'll,

Just throwing out a few notes about Hood. It was cold this last week and Saturday was a perfect day to get out. Snow is good. The final approach to the summit is snow covered with a little ice at the top 40 feet. Some wind-scoured ice-crust patches from Hogback to Palmer but plenty of good snow to charge through! Super soft below Palmer but lots of ollies needed to clear rocks :)

Here are a few pics, however it wouldn't let me upload all of the files as many of them were too large.
