I dig the lines and snow around Crater Lake, but I love the long lines on Hood. Starting low and getting high, 7000' vertical descents. Mt Hood provides several options. More bombing, less switch overs gets my vote.

Mt. Hood was where I skied for the first time back in 1st grade.
The PE program at my school included Wednesday ski days. Never forget the Friday night skiing on the frozen slopes in the rain. 1st-3rd grade - then moved to Illinois :roll:
I'll have to make it up to Hood one of these days to ski from the summit and complete the circle.

Hell yeah Jibmaster,

The upper slopes of Hood have taught me how to ride on anything.

It's cool to see you made the circumnavigation of Crater Lake. We had attempted that last year, mid March, but we received 5' of snow in 4 days. Ended up riding the tree's a mile and a half to the east of Steel center. Such great terrain, right across from the center.

Anywhere in Oregon sounds good, but the Wallowas piqued my interest.

Would love to get my split on in OR. Only place I've been in OR is High Cascades in the summer about 15 years ago.

wy'east face above mt. hood meadows in springtime is my favorite for ease of access, mellow pucker factor, awesome corn snow, great fall line, and easy climbing.

start climbing at 6, ride at 10, bbq and beers at trillium lake by noon!

i already have the book, i got it as a secret santa present... (dont put me in contest) but i still wanna share. its snowing heavily right now but im dreaming of early summer corn...

Wy'east face, mellow pucker factor? Definitely a relative term from a guy who's ridden Cooper Spur from the top.

Nice pic, Chris

Lots of OR lines on the 'Hitlist', but three areas that I plan to get soon are SW bowl of Thielsen, SW ridge of Jefferson, and S face of NSis.

Right out of Mt. Hood Meadows, there' a route that finds you well into the trees, of lower north east side of Mt. Hood proper... B-U-tiful...

Haven't done a ton of riding yet but I think the best riding so far has been the south side of the South Sister.
