Spring on Mt. Hood

Excellent day on the mountain today.  Blue skies, corn snow, temps in the upper 50’s. Palmer lift was running and my daughter and I skied top to bottom all day. Knackered.

Looking up toward crater rock from the top of Palmer. Sitting down to take in the views and eat a Mojo bar. This is only the 2nd day in 5 years that I’ve ridden to the top of Palmer. Every other time I’ve gone up it has been skinning at 4am in the comforting glow of my headlamp.

We could see a few people up on the Hogsback, but I think most had already summited and descended by mid-morning.
