Month 30 – May 25, 2008 – Mt Bachelor

Andy and I headed to Mt Bachelor for a final day of lift served riding and to get some turns in for the month of May. With so much snow this year, the Cascades Lakes Highway was yet to open, so the Three Sisters would have to wait until June. Access to Diamond Peak was also suspect, so we made the most of riding in-bounds. There weren’t too many people around, and the only lift that was operating was the Sunrise Express because the weather wasn’t cooperative to open the Summit Chair. We made lots of runs down lower through the trees and traversed out towards the Pine Marten Express and past the closed trail signs. I was ripping it up on my Burton Dominant 156, and it was really fun riding the runs jumping over little trees and rocks. We made several laps and left the hill around 1:00. I’m really looking forward to some improved weather and access to the higher peaks later this Spring/Summer.
