I took advantage of the pre-season powder that dropped in the NW Cascades this year. I skied / skinned three days before the lifts were even turning. The photos in this post are from Mt Hood Meadows Ski Area. My friend Dustin, his girlfriend Alex and I skinned up Hood River Meadows and got some freshies on Thanksgiving day.
The featured video in this post is from Pete Alport, whom is a cinematographer based out of Bend, Oregon.
Enjoy, pray for snow and start planning your epic adventures this season :) Cheers!
