Wanting an adventure and to get some August turns, ChronicRacing and I headed over to the North side of Mt. Hood to check out the Snow Dome. We left the suburbs around 6:30am, were hiking out of the Cloud Cap Campground before 9am, reached the top of Snow Dome around 2:15pm, and were back at the car before 5pm. It was a great day, an awesome experience, and the only thing I could think about at work today! :lol:

Here are some pics:


Word on the street was the creek crossing washed out.

Stoked to see the first cracks!

As we reached a shelf and a crevasse field on the Elliot Glacier the stoke was toned down a bit...
Chronic scouting a line accross.

Thanks again for the positive vibes. That was some proper Sunday worship.

Nice work guys! Looks like a good way to spend the day! This time of year the crossing on the Eliot gets kinda tricky. Glad you got across w/no issues and found some good turns!

Wow, that crossing does look a bit sketch. Cool trip.

Was thinking of trying Snowdome in September. Not sure how that would go down.

Late and lame response by me, but a fun day and good turns. Crossing the glacier was about as sketch as I was comfortable with, but with the right partner and good vibes things worked out! Cheers :guinness:

Did you guys rope up for that crossing? No judgment from me if you didn't, but I was wondering. Mad props on the work to turn ratio of that trip... :headbang:

We did not rope up for the glacier crossings.
