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.
