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!

The snow on top was like crusty wind packed snow if that makes any sense... as we got lower it turned into the classic spring summer corn shred.
