Winter is back! After an amazing start the snow stopped falling but the rain kept pouring. Skiers all through Oregon were crying the blues knowing that the rain in town did not mean snow at the resorts. Well old man winter has given us the powder that we all have been craving.

Mid-week is an amazing time to go up since there are no crowds while the mountain feels, as it is all yours. The mid-week deals are amazing. I recently stayed at the Mount Hood Inn in Government Camp for next to nothing and was met with an amazingly nice staff. The greatest part about staying in Government Camp is that you are walking distance from Ski Bowl, 15 minutes to Timberline, and 25 minutes to Mount Hood Meadows. Nothing like rolling out of bed at 8:30 and still catching first chair.

So get out there and enjoy the new snow!
