    Sounds good Alex. S Sister looks like a nice corn run, I've got my eye on that one. Congrats on the new addition to the family!

    With three weeks left to the May 31 deadline, Mt. Hood Meadows has surpassed the number of season passes sold in any previous season through the deadline. VP of Sales and Marketing Dave Tragethon describes this as “historic,” saying, “We are selling passes at an unheard-of rate - nearly triple any other season. Traditionally, we don’t see this pace of sales until the last few days before the May 31 deadline, but sales have been incredibly strong since next year’s passes went on sale April 1.”

    They sure drove up early demand by announcing that all-access passes might be limited. I wonder if they'd actually impose a limit if COVID restrictions get lifted.

    Has anyone been touring above cloudcap or the SW chutes on Adams? If so is the snow in any better shape than it is around superbowl on hood? We did wyeast today and the snow was good up high but terrible half way down superbowl.

    I think they did, by a fair amount. It was an unusually busy year for ANY outdoor activity that was still open. Golf is another example, super busy, even midweek
    It was just more crowded midweek from what I saw, but nothing like some years in the past on a pow weekend. The main lot filling up so quickly made our fav lot, HRM more enjoyable

    The threat of limited sales of the all access add on made us buy our passes earlier than later

    There just wasn’t shit else to do this winter. I was discussing it w my wife and said the only thing to do was either lay around and fuck or go skiing. She gave me the blessing to get a 50+ plus day season in this winter.

    Skied the SW chutes a few days ago. Snow is in fine shape. I approached via morrison instead of cold springs. Probably will be kind of sloggy either route soon. Lots of blow down that is barely covered in the burn down low Very enjoyable overall. Snow is in good shape - smooth and clean in my opinion.

    Did Bachelor get rid of the 12 day pass? Not seeing it on the website? They have a 4 day unrestricted pass for $449. (Bonus day if used before Dec. 17th)

    449 for 4 days...ouch. 1 "free" if used before Dec. 17 is far from guaranteed to be much beyond just getting the legs and feet used to the boots and making turns...

    They want to push all these rich new comers into the season pass.

    JimW is good people indeed. Usually not seen this far north, native habitat is the East entrance of Yosemite and occasionally Shasta 😊 Sometimes photographed and appearing in guidebooks, an elusive creature indeed Ahh Jim, if I knew you was going north I woulda pinged ya, though my trip was too last minute anyway. Hope you got the goods, looks like you did on (Cooper spur?).

    South sister (5/15) – Road is gated, but snow free. Even with a bike the road is long and takes a good amount of time going down and back up. Could ski/skin from the road to the top. Maybe 2-3 ft at the start, and some patches to navigate around down low. Top 500ft was pretty sun-cupped, but below that it was pretty good skiing down to the flats. Some mushy places and some dusty snow in places, but overall good at 11:40 ish.

    Mcloughlin (5/16) – Totally different experience than just a month ago. Completely different effort vs. reward equation now. Instead of skinning from the car and having most of the downhill on ski’s, it’s now much more walking on the up and down. We did the East bowl from the Mcloughlin trailhead (~5500ft), but FYI you can drive to ~0.3 miles from 4 mile lake, and we did run into one couple that approached that way. We skied fall line down the E bowl to ~6800ft and crossed the ridge there. From there it was some on-off unenjoyable skiing/traversing down to ~6500, and then walking on the trail (snow/dirt) back to the car. Folks that followed the ridge to the top got there an hour before us and probably didn’t deal with the route finding issues we had, but it looked like they got less skiing. But that might have been the right effort/reward trade-off. Best window on the E bowl probably was between 10 and 11 that day.
    Skier is Mrs. Jack Burton.
