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.
