    I agree. It's not right that you got a dump down there while I spend all day on Saturday turning through chunky ice on Mt. Hood.

    ...Lucky

    You should have waited until Sunday. I enjoyed 8-10 inches of beautiful powder at Mt Bachelor on Sunday, and sunny skies to boot!

    Thanks Nat......

    Everytime you guys get snow, it's means I might have to push back my annual trip in June.

    Last year we were even treated to the loop up and over Swede and down Tumalo Ridge on the usual Farewell/Mrazek/Ben's loop because of the low snow pack. This year, I'm starting to think we MAY make it up to the top of Whoops by early June.

    Here's to a really hot and dry May!

    Mely baby melt!

    (Disclaimer: I too enjoyed the new snow at Alpental on Saturday. So, snow is still good!)

    How are the conditions now in Phil's trail area? Upper Phil's even ridable by this weekend?

    By this weekend lower Phil's within about a mile of the trail head might be dry enough, but upper Phil's won't be out from under snow for several weeks I'm guessing. A lot of folks have been riding more north-south on lower Phil's, from Shevlin Park to the DRT and back. Can't go very far west up the hill though.

    Update: you remember all that white fluffy stuff 72 hours ago? It must've been an hallucination because I just got back from riding in Phil's Triangle just about all the way up to "red road" with only a couple of snowy patches (one of which effecively separated my bike out from under me -- ouch, my wrist!).

    Greebs: I think you're good-to-go this weekend on almost all of lower Phil's in the triangle area.

    Borneo: If this 70 degree weather holds out then you'll probably be good-to-go higher up by the time you come here too.

    What a difference a couple of days can make!

    We just take it for granted that we can ride 12 months of the year. Feel for you guys. Mind you, we cannot snowboard as easy as you can.

    Oh well, enjoy that riding when you can..........................

    I saw your post Re: MRT. It sounds very fun but I'm going to abstain from saying I'll be there since I got sent to the doghouse the last time I said I'd be somewhere and didn't show up! Can I just leave it as, "Maybe I'll be there?"

    The dog house...

    ...right where you belong!

    Nat, one of the biggest penalties of having a magnetic personality is that everybody notices when you ain't present, especially when they was expectin' ya.

    (This is not the voice of experience, BTW.)

    But you're close to redeeming yourself with your commitment to attend Fall Barbie Camp. IF you actually show up, that is!

    Thank you for your willingness to participate in future events.

    Very truly yours,

    You need to re-name this thread, "This is Soooo right!"

    Thanks. The red road already? Which way did you go up? Bens?

    Walking the fine line between snow melt and a good rainstorm the day before I get there....

    Awesome.

    Awesome.
    Yesterday I went up Ben's > Mike's > Kent's (almost to red road) > [u-turn] > Express > KGB > COD.

    The previous day I rode on Phil's up a ways, so it's definitely clearing!

    Nat, thanks for the replies. I did encounter some snow when I got to the higher parts of the trail. But it was still fun to ride, had a few minutes of rain when I showed up Friday afternoon. We started riding, and about a hundred yards down the road to the left of the parking lot my friend asked me if I had a rock stuck in my tire because it was going click, click, click... turns out it was about an inch long tack like you see in the bottoms of chairs stuck in my tire. I body surfed a section when I encountered a snow patch and my front wheel got hung up in a deep part. Oh well, it was just a small sample of what happened boarding on bachelor the next day. Lots of fun.
