Mt. Hood Ski Adventure

We headed out to Mt. Hood for some skiing on Thursday. Awesome days and we chose to ski on the night shifts.

We stayed at the the only pet friendly Hotel in the area, the Mt. Hood Inn located in Government Camp. The hotel was fine and they were nice enough to upgrade us to the King bed with the jacuzzi tub (which came in handy after a night on the slopes).

Thursday night we hit Skibowl and it was pretty icy. We only got in a couple of runs before we headed back to our digs.

Dinner was awesome from Ice Axe Grill and I just can not say enough about their wings. Large, tender and kinda spicy with a sweet asian dipping sauce. Susan had a beet salad that ruled as well. For the main course, the individual pizza's were muy bien. This place also has a great micro brew selection to lubricate the throat for the the fine food.

We ate the leftovers for lunch on Friday!

Friday we slept in a bit and then hit Meadows for their 3pm to close ski experience. The skiing here was much better with a lot more options across run categories. I think we skied until about 8pm and it was great (even though the conditions were not optimal).

We awoke Saturday to... wait for it... about an inch or two of new snow! Too bad we were already spent and ready to head home.
