I know that this is just a tease, but still it's pretty awesome to see a light dusting of snow on the mountain cams for Mt.Bachelor (top) and Mt. Hood Meadows (bottom) this morning. Soon, ski season will be here and I'll be well on my way to accomplishing this year's goal of skiing at least 50 times during 2015-2016.
In order to reach that number, I'll be living in Bend part-time this winter and spring. The nice thing about Bend is that from the west side of town, it's only about 25-30 minutes to Mt. Bachelor versus the 75-80 minutes it takes to me to drive from NE Portland to Mt. Hood Meadows. Plus, Bend is just beautiful and feels like my second home (for now) and possibly my permanent home someday soon.
Hitting 50 ski days this year is within reason especially if I can work until 8:30 AM and be back at my desk working by 11:30 AM for the rest of the afternoon. And if this year's El Nino delivers more snow than last year, I should be in good shape for skiing 50 times.
Have a nice Wednesday this little blip of chilly weather. We're back to regular September weather tomorrow.
