Winter Returns to Central Oregon

Postby oldranger » Thu Feb 28, 2013 12:11 am




Finally got some snow in the past week. So back in the skiing mode--Friday, Monday, Wednesday (today). First 2 pics skiing Flagline trail--Starts near Mt. Bachelor heads n then e then w to Meissner snow park--just over 8 miles with about 500 ft of uphill and 1,000 of down hill. Only problem was breaking trail through 10 inches of snow most of the way. Third pic was taken on my regular conditioning hike yesterday. Beautiful clear day. Today while skiing, ah ...it snowed again! Looks like more coming. Sure hope some heads s to the Sierra.

Love that first photo Mike! We are supposed to get up to 2 feet of snow in the
Sierra next week, at least that is what they reported today. They also reported
that we are at 2/3 of average for the snow pack as of today.

I don't give out specific route information, my belief is that it takes away from the whole adventure spirit of a trip, if you need every inch planned out, you'll have to get that from someone else.
