Forums Trip Reports Mt. Saint Helens Summit Ride Viewing 8 posts - 1 through 8 (of 8 total) Author Posts March 12, 2012 at 11:40 pm #576599 ShredOR 130 Posts Mike(chronicracing), Elliot(skier), Chadwick, and myself set out for a moon mission on Mt. Saint Helens last friday. We left Portland around midnight, parked at the Marble Mountain Snowpark, started skinning around 2:30am, watched the sunrise at the weather station (with a ridiculous view of Mt. Adams), summited around 10am, and were drinking beer in the parking lot just after 12noon. It was an awesome day! A couple days before the trip it looked like it might rain on friday but as you will see in the video it was beautiful and sunny. Sorry I don’t have any pictures but my picture camera sucks hard. Maybe chronicracing will post some of the pictures he took. Shred ON!
