Summer Skiing, Mt Hood, Oregon

One of the many reasons I moved to the Columbia River Gorge is year-round skiing.  Summer skiing on Mt Hood, Mt Adams, Mt Rainier is incredibly fun and varied.  Face-shot powder stashes can be found on the cold, shady north facing slopes well into July.  The dense and abundant snowpack bridge the crevasses on the glaciers and provide safe, smooth skiing until autumn.  The vertical is near Himalayan scale and summer weather is often Awesome.

Dave:

I hope all is well with you. You were one of our guides with Alpine Ascents on Memorial Day 2011 on Rainier. We didn't quite make it that day but will always remember your encouragement and steady support. If you're ever in Minnesota again soon, know that Clark, Matt, and myself would love to meet up with you again. Take care.

Jeff
