Here’s a great opportunity to get your back country ski equipment back into shape with a 10 mile excursion around up to Gnarl Ridge, then up to the Gates of Heaven to ski the back side of this treeed area. Experience the new snow, unexplored areas of the East side of Mt Hood.
Full day. Advanced back country experience for those who are comfortable with turns but want to stay safe and out of avalanche danger. Fairly steep and aggressive.
