Oct 3rd, crater rim descent, mt hood
« on: 10/04/13, 12:01 PM »

We descended from the highest skiable point on mt. Hood yesterday. We found thigh deep stable pow, with some semi-dangerous wind loaded spots, overall some of the best snow conditions I've found on the summit of mt hood.

Pretty rad to get a 5,000 ft. Extreme run on October 3rd!
Photos coming soon.

Saw you climbing up but didn't see you come down. We skinned up to below Crater Rock and laid down lines toward Zig Zag Canyon. Then traversed back to ski down to the lodge.
Great day for October turns.
