Dreaming of the Magic Mile on Mt. Hood


Despite the promise of an early ski season, November was a season rife with sudden, inexplicable changes in temperature that took things from freezing one day to near summer temps the next! This has played chaos with the snow on the ski resorts here in the Pacific Northwest, and so I decided to revisit one of this spring's finer excursions high on the slopes of Mt. Hood. I've been to Timberline several times, but this is the first that the Magic Mile has been open, and was it ever worth the wait! I could have spent the day just taking photographs and forgotten about skiing entirely. Hopefully this gallery will help take the edge off your impatience to hit the slopes and fuel your dreams of the coming months of winter.
