It's Mt Si in North Bend Wa. Snow this low is unusual. Only the 2nd time in the 8 years we have been here. The 3' of snow closed all the roads of for a week. This old railroad bed runs behind our house and goes east for hundreds of miles.

So Bend doesn't get any snow in town? I've thought about living there, maybe soon - has it been ruined by people from California or do you still recommend it. :lol:

Canna, Woods has me convinced to start looking into New Hampshire. Skiing into to May, shops that actually stock Telemark gear, and I think the fishing and mountain biking could keep me interested through the summer. All that just a short drive from Massachusetts ;) !

Definitely would recommend NB. Our ski shop is owned by a Swiss Mountain guide and caters to all things for alpine touring. Two climbing walls and a bike park. Resident elk herd. Bears, mountain lions, homeless travelers, 2nd Amendment nutjobs and Microsoft Execs all mixed together. Summer is 6 weeks with the top down on my Jeep. 2 hour drive gets skiing in August. And rain, lots of rain. 60+ inches a year. But 20 minutes away the rain turns into this. Lift accessed BC Nordic skiing with blue groomers the get you back to the bar and your car.

that's pretty funny, I though you meant Bend, Oregon! So North Bend is basically the closest you can get to the mountains while still living in the Seattle area - looks perfect for me! I like to be within 45 minutes of the city.

Here's a few shots from around my neighborhood within an hour drive or so. We're finally getting some decent snow in southern Idaho!

I know my E99s were down there somewhere but I don't think I saw them much that day.

Outside of the Randolph Mountain Club Hut... everyone pees outside and then the big wind comes and blows the surrounding snowpack away...

Looks like a nice afternoon Al. It's pretty cool when new boots go on and you just ski all afternoon. Looks like a place that would be fun to ski all afternoon as well.
