Month 3 – February 5, 2006 – Willamette Pass

Andy and I met early in the morning in Eugene and headed up to the Pass for what turned out to be a great day of riding. The sun was shining all day, and the backside, which apparently was closed on Saturday, was open with fresh snow. There was about a foot of fresh dry powder over the top of a bit of crust, which made for fun turns on the board. The steep tree runs west of the EPA lift were in decent shape, although the trees immediately adjacent to RTS were pretty crusty. SDS proved to have some of the best snow on the mountain, and was where we spent most of our time riding. It was an excellent day to be at the mountain, and marked the 3rd consecutive month of riding for me. I even got home in time to catch some of the super bowl.
