Mount Bachelor Party

We're still waiting for snow to hit the lower elevation terrain in Oregon.  In the meantime, yesterday I returned to Mount Bachelor with my ski buddies for another round of preseason turns.  The resort is still not open, but we had a little of everything-- wind blown powder, bulletproof ice, and mashed potatoes.  A few of my photos are below.  For a detailed trip report, see Sam's writeup at the Kickturner.

Oh, and by the way, the Oregonist Blog now has a Twitter account.  Follow me at @OregonistBlog for the latest.

We set out at 9:30 am under the Mine Marten lift

Red Chair (the only lift I'm aware of that has its very own beer)

Safety first

Spectacular rime ice formations... (not so spectacular to ski)
