January 24, 2014, Mt Hood, Eliot/Newton Glaciers
« on: 01/24/14, 10:32 AM »

Toured all over the North Side yesterday. Despite ample sun, a hard-blowing, uncharacteristic East wind kept the snow surface cool, with almost no softening during the day.

Photos and some writing here: http://mountainlessons.com/skiing/confessions-ex-freeskier

The best skiing was carveable windboard, found only in the most sheltered nooks above treeline. Below tree-line there was some snow that would have skied like corn, were it not for the dust layer on top slowing things down considerably.
