Ascent Trip Report

Great day of backcountry skiing on Saddleback mountain. The sun was out and the snow conditions were ideal for a great day. I got in about 2600 vertical and two long runs down some great powder. I also made it back to Portland in time to see Twiddle. Windchill on the summit was pushing -30ºF or lower so we all had to be very careful when taking photos to avoid frostbite.
