May 21, 2017, Mt Hood, Wy'East Face Fast
« on: 05/25/17, 10:10 AM »

Tom and I skied the Wy'East last Sunday. Cold East winds kept things firmish up high. Snow hadn't consolidated after the precip earlier in the week.

Should be good by this weekend!

I also like WyEast face, it's a perfect date if skiing were a girl, or a boy, or a penguin if one was a gender indiscriminate penguinm lover run. Rock on!

Saw the reid from lolo pass the other day, very filled in. In my experience spring is a terrible time for leuthold's, given the runnel in the hourglass, but if you send it and it's smooth, let me know!
