Wow, Middle of June. Or as one journalist called the weather in Oregon Junuary. The Oregon Skyway at Willamette Pass should be opening for downhill mountain biking, hiking, sightseeing and extreme disc golf. INSTEAD they are re-opening the lifts for skiing and snowboarding this weekend. UNBELIEVABLE. I started skiing here in 1958 and I guaranty there has never been lift served skiing in June. The slopes on Peak 2 are all skiable. Wax your boards before you head up there and grab a bucket of sunscreen. I swear the back deck is going to be COVERED in college students getting a jump on their summer tans. Check it out. Some fun will be had by all.
