Next year, we're going to do a longer trip and hit Timberline and Meadows as well as Bachelor.


Mount Hood - Ski Bowl Snowboarding : Oregon Feb 2008

Warm up for Mt bachelor

I met Michael at the Portland Airport at 11:00am. By the early afternoon, we were in our gear, on the lift, getting ready to get it on. Hood was just a warm up for Mt Bachelor. But man it was a good warm up.


Lift Ticket: $25 Night 3pm to Close

Because it was so warm, (we were actually hot walking to the lift) the snow was thick and wet at the bottom. But at the top of the bowl, it was nice. As the night crept on us, and it got colder and colder, the snow hardened up and crusted over a bit. But for a first day warm up, it was perfect.
