Sign said 4 mile lake was closed, but didn’t drive it or the other E side access to see if they get us close enough.
    Where did you start from and how is the snow pack. I am going to be down there in about 3 weeks and hoping there will still be enough snow for me to ski it.

    We started at the summit snow park right on Hwy 140. I'd think in 3 weeks the south side would see the skiable snow pack move up to 7000ft (just a guess). The problem with Mcloughlin is that in the trees you have all of these micro ridges to cross that burn out. I'd guess the east side would do better and hopefully would go from 4 mile lake or the summer trail. We might go back and do the E side on our way back to CA next week. If so, i'll post an update on that side.

    Made a game time decision to ski this AM, which resulted in my being asked to chaperone this entourage

    Which includes the mothers of two pro skiers
    We slayed the halfpipe

    Was rewarded with lunch of ahi poke, salmon belly, ribs, shrimp, brats, grilled veggies and two flavors of fried rice. All I had to do was open new Prosecco bottles when the ladies killed the last one.

    Good times.

    Does anyone know the status or forest service road 2690/big lake rd near Mt Washington OR? I have Tuesday off work and would like to ski Mt Washington but not sure how close I can get to it.

    I’ve tried online but cannot find anything.

    As to the Mt Washington approach....Big Lake Youth Camp is where the best trailhead is. You can call them and ask if the road to the camp is plowed (I am pretty sure that if that road gets plowed, they plowed it). In the past I have parked just outside the youth camp gate and hiked from there. I found the people at the camp to be friendly and helpful. Enjoy!

    All these dang spring pass kids at Tline! On one hand, I love watching the fashion show... on the other hand, feels like I'm playing chicken with them on every park feature.

    Here’s your AM recon report for Sunday May 5/22
    - Road is clear to PCT TH and youth camp
    - there’s around 6”- 1’ snow at trailhead. Also shitload of snow removal debris
    - There’s a fair amount of wet slide activity on SE face. Also a slab slide just above tree line on the spine.
    - Didn’t see any Avy activity on NE aspects
    - No idea what west side looks like

    The last time I wore a tutu was skiing for OAS about five years ago
    Caught the skirt in sitski straps at offload.
    Spun me 360* (with double ski eject) and slammed me face first into the ramp
    Pulling the bucket, kid and instructor on top of me.
    I suffered severe hematomas to left hip and ego

    I haven't been able to get over there at all this year. How's the snowpack in the trees, like near Morrison creek CG? Did you use the summer or winter approach?

    Thanks for the info. We went down the NW bowl around 12:15 and it had just barely softened up enough to be good.

    There was some slide activity on the NE side. Must have been recent if it was not there Sunday.
