Third Day

Conditions today were excellent, nothing like yesterdays glue. At the beginning it was icy but after a few hours it softened up and turned into some great spring corn. The park had great conditions, we spend most of the time there.

We met with Fainerbainer and his friend, cool guys, we had a good time group riding. It's incredible how conditions change in hood, at the lower half visibility was bad and it was raining. In the middle there was a little snowfall with some clouds and at the top the sun was as bright as it could be, as a result we got a really bad sun burn in the face. But over all it was a good day, the bad part was that they had Magic mile and palmer closed due to the conditions.


Thats a nice picture of the lodge.


The sun at the top of the lift was freaking intense.


Looking down at the cloud cover


That was at the bottom of Jeff lift


Just about to break the cloud cover and get to the sunny side.

It was a lot of fun today. I never really did tree runs until today and I hate them. You should have seen Scott take a hard fall on the last run. It was just on a little small jump (maybe a foot in the air) lol. Made me feel better after he kept leaving me behind in the trees.

Oh and on one of the last runs I fell (in the trees) and I fell right beside two guys off the trail smoking weed. Pretty funny and thanks for a fun day. Riding in a bigger group with people equivalent or better really does help you do better.

^^^^^^^I am not a pro in the park, but we did hit a park with large features. They do have some hard core features in the large section of the terrain park. The park is sort of divided into 3 parts, beginners, another one for intermediates and the large one with some nice rails a big half pipe and the larger jumps.

They were also building another large park up in mile with what look like very large ramps and another half pipe. Snowolf told me that in the summer they have a great terrain park.

I will post some pitures of the new terrain park later on.

Talking Last Day

Snowolf stayed at our hotel over night, it was a good idea that way he could save on gas costs. The last day was pretty good, unfortunately I fell pretty bad a couple of times (there were talks about having to change my nickname to simply^fall instead of simply^ride ). On of the falls I landed on my nose and scratched it a little bit, I am going to have a fun time explaining that to my boss.


Thats the park they were building up in mile for summer riding, they were all day up there working on it. You can also see at the end the roof a lodge, that thing was completely buried under the snow.


Another shot of the park they were building


A nice shot with clear skies, riding up magic mile, you can see the palmer lift and the Half pipe.


this is on top of magic mile above the cloud cover, thats Daniel, Snowolf and me.


Cool shot of my board with Daniel and Snow in the background.


Thats Palmer glacier.


Looking down from Magic mile.


After landing face forward into ice snow. Didn't hurt but I hope it doesn't leave a scar in the center it's a little deep.

After 3 full days of riding I am so tired, on top of that I think I have to get my knee checked up, something is going on in there thats feels out of place.

Snowolf was extremely helpful and he is probably the nicest guy that I ever met, thanks again Snow. I am looking forward to coming back to hood next year, if the $$$ allows it. This trip has to be in my top 3 riding trips I highly recommend it to anyone reading this.

Timberline is a great resort, they really have one of the best people working for them. Riders/skiers are friendly and respectfully unlike some resorts in the east coast. Their terrain is not what I would consider double black, but they have some great glades, parks and natural jumps to make up for it. They also offer plenty of vertical to keep you busy and just in case you feel like having more you could hike some more for some more runs from the summit.
