September 3,2012 (Mt) Bachelor Butte
« on: 09/03/12, 12:57 PM »

Fires in central Oregon made for a spectacular sunrise, not a cloud in the sky, no wind , and just above freezing when I left the pickup.  I have been working in central Oregon, and the snow on Bachelor and the Sisters, has been calling.  It is a wonderful trail, and the vert seemed to glide by.  The moon was so full that the only place I needed a light was in the sections that passed through the timber.  The Indian paintbrush is in full glory at the 8000.

As I made my way Broken Top came into view, followed by the Sisters and peaks further north.


A fantastic view in all directions from the summit.

I started the decent at 0730 and it was quite firm, the first few turns were fairly loud, but as I worked my way around into the sun it improved with every turn. The sun cups were mostly c's and it was about a thousand feet of fun.

Would have loved to take another lap, but had to hurry back to work.  A great September ski!

Nice photos. We were in Bend in August and the snow pack looked healthy.

Nice one Jamie!  I was afraid that second photo showed all the snow that was, but the fifth pic shows some good looking snow.
