November 4, 2016, Mt. Hood South Side
« on: 11/07/16, 10:25 AM »

Day trip: Ascent on skins from Timberline Lodge to about 9,000ft and descent to Timberline Lodge.
Weather: Mostly bluebird skies with developing patchy high-altitude cirrostratus layer. Around 40 degrees F.

Timed trip for a mid-morning ascent with descent around around 1pm. Walked a couple hundred feet above T-Line Lodge to patchy snow, with easy route finding on snow/skins up to Mile chairlift terminal. Snow conditions on ascent mostly softening crust to corn. Encountered more crust and rime above Palmer Snowfield. Epic corn on descent! Grin
Walked out a few hundred feet to T-Lodge.

Are you from the future?  Who wins the election?

Oops looks like this post doesn't say November 11 anymore....
