Middle Sister SW Face Via Hayden Glacier
First of all I want to thank mtnpavlas for getting the site back up and running. I started looking at this site obsessively 10 years ago when I was 18 and started a passion of backcountry ski adventures with my friends. Seeing this site restarted and having more trip reports again is getting me stoked! Hope we can keep this weird little community alive on this platform.
I recently moved to Bend and this is my first spring out here. Went for an awesome mellow overnighter to ski Middle Sister. Put a basecamp at the base of the Hayden Glacier and summited Middle Sister around 2 p.m. Skied the SW side in awesome hot pow off the summit for the first 1000 or so feet, lower down it transitioned to some pretty epic mush. Still not quite corn season down here yet, easily a foot and or more of new snow from the last week high in the alpine. Got some of the best turns of the trip during an evening ski run on the Hayden. Excited to explore more terrain down here!
