Month 16 – March 16, 2007, Mt Bachelor

Sunshine was in the forecast, so Andy, Todd and I headed over from the valley to make some spring turns on Mt. Bachelor. Most of our day was spent riding the terrain off the summit lift, with some good turns found on the mountain’s south side.

Fresh snow had fallen the night before, and the morning sunshine made the day very enjoyable. As usual, the backside of Bachelor didn’t disappoint, offering lots of turns in open bowls, glades, and trees. I found several nice cornices to play on as well…

The base is holding up well on the mountain and should make for good turns this spring in the backcountry. Overall, it was another good day of riding on the mountain and well worth the long drive from the Willamette Valley!
