Once in the line, there is nothing to difficult about the route finding. There is a spine out skiers right that you could go over into a different section if the line started to rip. The main line descends straight down over a few cliffs, height and risk depending on snow. After the mandatory air you have the skirt where I headed to the right side to descend under the east face of notch top. Keep heading right towards lake Helene. Be heads up of the slopes to skiers right that can slide. You will need to skin up to the lake. Once at the lake I recomend skinning up Flat top where you can get a high perch and ski down and around back to Bear Lake. Be carefull of getting caught in the thick trees and route finding in the drainage below Lake Helene.[more]
Oregon has a lot in the cascades, is home to the blue mountains, Mount Hood (11,161'), Crater Lakes, Wallowa Mountains, and much more. The snow is generally a little bit more dense than other areas of the country because of the maritime weather patterns, but it is also very bountiful.
