May 30, 2009 Ht Hood, Snowdome
« on: 06/01/09, 12:27 PM »

Road to Tilly Jane CG is gated at 3850'. Hiked the trail to 5350', skinned from there to Snowdome at 9350' with only a few minutes with skis off to get down the Eliot Glacier moraine from 6750 to 6650. About 3 or 4 feet of snow at Tilly Jane A frame.(5550), less in the open areas between 6000 & 6700.  About half the trail to the A frame is thru forest that burned a few years ago. Totally bluebird with a cooling 10 knot breeze. Started down at about 12:30, creamed corn with 1 to 3 inch penetration to 6200, then started getting firm but sticky. The last 200vf of skiable snow is in burned forest, and this cleaned the pollen off.
