7 miles of hiking • 1000' elevation gain •
Took the Altai Hok skis and a new backpack out for an easy ski in this weekend's "blizzard" on Mt. Hood. Turns out that the weather was a mixed bag of wet snow and cloud breaks, making for an extremely beautiful ski trip. Despite the huge mess of trailers and RVs and other signs there were lots of snow mobilers out, we actually saw them very infrequently and they were all extremely respectful.
