yea I'm heading up there to for the first time mid may and can't wait to get some summer riding in. I thought the summer riding out there was pretty straight forward but I guess not lol....
So let me ask you guys..as far as I know you can ride Hood all year, is that the case or is there like a 1-2 month break?
I was planning on bringing my board w/ me...does anyone know how much the airlines charge for that type of precious cargo?

If we're paying for Avgas, might as well make it jet fuel.
When you get your rating for one of these...
I'll let you drop me off on top of here...
all day long.

never heard of bachelor.[/QUOTE] Mt Bachelor. Bend Oregon. Just another cascade volcano.. ho hum/. great mtn Snow tends to be drier than more coastal influenced Hood. The best tree pow runs at a resort in Orygun IMO.
May the schwartz be with U...

yeah i've heard Mt Hood can have some awesome snow late in the year. i'm so sick of all the local SoCal mtns -- big bear & mtn high, that have minimal base and tends to do lots of snowmaking. i was comparing the trail maps of both meadows and timberline and meadows has the snow park and more to do for boarders. oh well, assuming i enjoy my trip to PDX, i'm sure i'll go back again next time and try out meadows hopefully next season. i'm just looking forward to snowboarding at a new place and for sure will post up afterwards.
never heard of bachelor.
