    You could also just meadow skip from the parking lot and link up some nice super short sections.

    Gotta be aware of marshes and terrain traps though..Huge temp fluctuations and strange snowpack in that area.
    Sounds less interesting 🤪

    Probably be a quicker turn around to call Greg. Solid dude.

    Jong question from someone who has never been to MHM before. How close is the heather canyon area to being opened? Does it only need a few more feet of snow, or is it a super rocky area that gets wind scoured and probably wont be open for a few more weeks? Was supposed to meet my buddy at his familys house in Anchorage next week to hang out and check out Alyeska for a day or two, but after the earthquake his family has no water or septic so we called an audible to meet halfway between us at Mt Hood. Never skied anywhere but Tline in the summer so any info or tips are appreciated.

    More vertical, steeper, and more snow than skiing in the mid-Atlantic. No complaints here.

    Potato on the left Boars Tooth on the right. There is a cool little chute on the other side of the tooth that goes right to the pull out.

    I haven't skied there in 20 years (i.e. before the new lift out of Heather was installed and all the area around Private Reserve, etc. was made legal) but it seemed like they would open it when the base was around 60 inches. Also big storms would shut it down for quite a while until all the control work was done, sometimes for a week or more. Maybe it's different now though.

    Heather is a long, long ways off. It needs a ton of snow to fill in the creek crossings at the bottom. Last year it didn't open until the end of the season.

    At Hoodoos SS indoctrination last month I sat with a guy that's skied those lines and he mentioned some terrain traps. I'll see him Sat. at SS and get the low down on perticulars.

    My kid asked me if Heather would be open yet. I yelled at him and laughed at him until he cried--granted, a bit less than my dad yelled at me when I was a kid. It gets better every generation...

    Not a heather expert, but would echo that we're a long way off. Check out the location of the heather chair in terms of elevation.

    The biggest issue with Heather is the runout. Depending on how much snow there is on the runout to make snow bridges. Last years problem was decent coverage above 5,000-5,500', well below average below that. If memory serves me correct, Heather open around the first of Feb. 5'-6' of base at the lodge is when it usually opens

    In fairness, just about any ski region in the world could make the same favorable comparison.

    Double chairs suck!

    (I miss the old green and red- both doubles. That mid-load was old school!)

    Has to have enough of a snow bridge to support a cat to get back in there before they open it. 33% of avg snowpack, not happening anytime soon.
