After spending the previous two days skiing on the north and east sides of Mount Adams (see TAY report), I was too tired to attempt anything major on Friday, so Corey Bloom and I headed to Timberline Lodge for a rest day of skiing the lifts. Not much to report, other than we enjoyed a fine breakfast buffet at the lodge, got our tickets for only $19.55 each (a special price this week in honor of 50 years of RLK ownership of the ski operation since 1955), and then spent 5 hours yo-yoing the Palmer chair on good to great spring snow conditions. The snow didn't get really sticky until the last couple of runs, just before the 2:30 PM closing time, and afterwards we could ski out to within 50 ft of the parking lot. Time to head down to Mount Shasta to meet a bunch of other Seattle skiers for Memorial Day weekend.

The snow is melting very quickly down low. The photo below shows conditions looking up from just above the lodge (click here for an enlarged version). I also took some super-zoomed telephoto shots of the summit showing snow conditions and climbers near the Hogsback and bergschrund.

This was part of a (planned to be) lengthy Cascade volcano ski road trip. Other trip reports:
May 25-26, 2005, Mt Adams, Lava-Lyman-Wilson-Rusk Glaciers
May 28-29, 2005, Mt Shasta, Avalanche Gulch
May 30, 2005, Shastina, Cascade Gulch & South Face
