Seems I spent most of my time thinking about bikes this last summer and never got around to getting different skis. But if anyone hears about a pair of K2 Comba's on the market let me know. Looking for used.

SNOW, DAMIT!
I'm looking at my Coombacks as I write this... great soft snow ski. I'm getting a pair of Sidestash's for the chowder/hard this year... Bring it!

First time in 20 years or more that I'm missing opening day -Dang angry ankle. Oh well, it's a long season. Our son made the cover of this NY publication with a shot from last year.

If the snow ever returns, Paulina Peak can be excellent, it's just north of La Pine. There's a groomed snow machine track to the summit which is worth mooching a tow to the top of. I usually park at the highest snow park and ask any snowmobile riders if they're going that way. Got my own tow rope and some cash for fuel.

Tumalo Butte is right across the road from Mt. Bachelor. Takes a little more than an hour to ascend the southwest side then ski the east facing bowl as many times as your energy allows. Skin back up and return the way you came. Kwol Butte is another little skin up affair south and east of Mt. Bachelor. PM for more, my ankle will be ready to go by then and I would be glad to shuffle around with ya!

Started into Paulina last year, but my wife is more, well, shall we say, flat touring oriented.. A group of us stay at a friends B&B [Diamondstone] after Xmas .. which is very close to road up to Paulina...I think I toured into Tumalo years ago when I was younger and foolish enough to think I could three-pin [All AT now]...what aspect on Paulina is best?

I will look up Kwol Butte...

Will PM you my email..keep in touch about your ankle...hey, if you are gimped up, perhaps I can stay up with you..

Thanks again..appreciated.

Phil

Got up to Meadows Sunday morning with a few friends. Meadows opened the Hood River parking lot (HRM) for the day. Got a couple great runs down Elevator and Lower Elevator before the crowds got over there and trashed it. Great time getting out on the snow with good friends.

Sunday was probably decent snow early. I was at Meadows on Saturday, fighting the crowds. Even late into the day though, I was able to find some decent lines to get some tracks in. I was surprised at how little it was tracked up once you got off the groomers. Other than the high winds and the crowds, the snow was pretty darn good for this early in the season.
