Another Great Day on Mt. Hood!

This year, January and February were a little bit light in the snowfall department up on Mt. Hood.  However, the side benefit of no snowstorms is that we got lots of sunny days.  (Spring skiing in the winter---gotta love it!)  And if you can't have fresh powder, sunshine is the next best thing! 

This blog post features photos from a really beautiful day in mid-February at Mt. Hood Meadows.


Queen of the mountain!


My ski-buddy Kim strikes a studly skier pose.


A bad day skiing is always better than a good day working!


Great views of Mt. Jefferson and low clouds over the Cascades from the top lift at Meadows.


Uh-oh!  Wipeout!!


Years ago, Kim gave me the nickname "Biff."  Now you know why!


I think this is a great shot of Kim. 


The remnants of an overnight ice storm can be seen on the trees.  I thought these ice formations were especially cool.  You can tell which way the wind was blowing.


The trees seem bent over from their weight of ice.


Kim's daughter joined us in the afternoon.  She's learning to snowboard, and is picking it up quickly.


Kim and her daughter a-comin' down the mountain.


There they go!



This blog post would not be complete without one more great shot of my favorite mountain.  Hood looks really good when it's covered in snow.   Sunshine, good turns, and great views.  Another perfect day on the mountain!
