I will be the tour leader this week after returning from Baker City where there is lots of ice in town and great snow at Anthony Lakes. The weather at this time is light snow and just below freezing at Mt Hood on Wednesday. Several inches of fresh snow is expected earlier in the week. Again Portland weather could be the issue that causes a cancellation. Colder air along with some moisture is expected mid-week. The timing and and how the two systems meet is not well defined at this time. A winter weather event could happen as early as Tuesday night or Wednesday. Thursday seems more likely right now from what I read.
My current thinking is to ski either Pocket Creek or White River. White River is quite exposed so if wind is present it is not a good choice. A cancellation as late as Tuesday night is possible this week if driving across Portland looks real difficult on Wednesday morning or afternoon. Email me if you are interested in skiing Wednesday. An update will be emailed to that list Tuesday by dinner time. The group will meet at Edgefield in Troutdale leaving at 9 AM from the west parking lot.
