December 25, 2015, Mt. Hood Elk Meadows ish
« on: 12/25/15, 05:21 PM »

Skied east of meadows down some of the best fall line skiing (for mt hood) amongst burnt trees in hero boot top pow. There is a good bridge across newton creek just downstream of the old logging road right of way. Someone used the log at the logging road right of way log crossing and it looked like it would have been pretty gnarly. If anyone wants to go out tomorrow I can bribe you with uber pow amongst burnt trees and a pre made skin track!

Took an hour to just get to govy from where the slow down began. Imagine another 30mins to get past govy. Many cali plates turning the one lane highway to two, quite the cluster...

Nice.  Always think about skiing that burn, but newton is that much closer.
