Oct 15th, mt hood zig zag
« on: 10/17/13, 01:52 PM »

as a thanks to silas for selling me some used dynafits, i will do this TR in silaswild style.

Good coverage from top of magic mile and up, warm temps made for comfortable skinning and good snow. Snow softened to 3 to 4" of fast smooth spring snow at around 1pm.

Good news.  Looks like the forecast for clear nights could continue similar conditions through the weekend.

Christoph,
I was up there on Tuesday as well, did I run into you and a buddy (and a hound) at the top of the Palmer?

That was some creamy, sweet, corn!

I'm happy that the Dynafit TLT bindings got you out on skis for a change, and that we were able to meet in Portland.  Thanks for the intro to Next Adventure and cool Ski Logik tshirt!  :-)
Phil, there are two girls in the background of this photo, good enough?
