Good conditioning  Sucess!

Just moved to Bend over x-mas 2010. Climbed it just for some conditioning. 3 hours car to car. Windy at the top.

Lift tix please?  Sucess!

Have to say, pretty weak black diamonds on Bachelor. Epictacular skiing though!

not really  Sucess!

Have skied there many times, good enough for me

Cheating the summit  Sucess!

This is the one and only summit I can say I've cheated. Took the lift up and climbed the rest before skiing down.

Two Volcanoes In One Day  Sucess!

Robbin and I did the south ridge of South Sister from Devil's Lake and afterward we had some energy left over so we drove across the street and did Mount Bachelor too. Over 7600 feet of vertical gain in a day. Not bad. Coming down from Bachelor I dropped about 1800 feet in 15 minutes with one long standing glissade.

good workout  Sucess!

took 2 hours, got to the top and enjoyed the sunset, then shredded down!

Easy up, difficult down  Sucess!

Ascended via the trail from Sunrise Lodge. The trail is easy for the average hiker. The summit was dusted in the seasons first snowfall. There was also about four inches of rime ice. We descended via the ridge along the westside of the glacier / snowfield. This route is difficult with lots of rocks to negotiate. It is also a lot steeper. We crossed a couple snowfields on the way down.

Sweet sunset hike  Sucess!

Reached summit right before sunset. Quite a place to watch that sun go down. About the only way I could justify hiking it

Nice, relaxed climb  Sucess!

Climbed this on the spur-of-the moment with my future son-in-law with only some cross-training types of shoes, shorts and tee-shirts. Great weather, views and the mountain to ourselves. Took a little searching and scrambling to find the Summit Lift trail but once we did about 1/2 way up the Summit Lift route, it was quicker and easier heading up. This was a nice walk after Adams a couple of weeks ago.

a little escape during on-call weekend  Sucess!

Wasn't sure where the trail started, so I walked up the Pine Martin maintenance road and scrambled up the ridge to the north of the skyliners lift, really a pretty enjoyable route with a little bouldering and minimal scree. Found the trail once I reached the summit and used it to descend, WAY to many switchbacks! Glad I didnt come up that way, skyliner ridge highly recommended.

Sweet and Short  Sucess!

Nice short hike. Did this just after climbing Adams and St. Helens, so it was a nice break in long hikes. Not much for views with the weather. Awfully windy up top but was fun to explore the summit area.

rest day  Sucess!

rather ugly trail, but an easy hike, good choice for a day that also saw six hours of car travel. Wished we'd brought axes, could still have glissaded about half way down.

Via the trail  Sucess!

Natreb and I decided to climb this peak before heading out of the Three Sisters Wilderness. Nice peak with nice views.

Sunrise Lift Trail  Sucess!

Hiked the trail starting at the Sunrise lift. Very little snow on the trail but nice glissade down.

West Village Parking Lot  Sucess!

Slow all the way up. Left late in the day (2:00), still enough time to at 4:30. Awesome views of the Sisters, but not much time to enjoy the view. Hour long glissade down.

Climbed the Chair!  Sucess!

Me and Joel again.

Chairlift  Sucess!

Great skiing, but I hardly can count it as a "summit".

Ski Slopes  Sucess!

I was glad I brought crampons and ax as it was pretty icy up top. Had the mountain to myself on a beautiful day.

Chairlift  Sucess!

I owned it.

Nice weather  Sucess!

My original plan was to enjoy the storm on some small peaks in the 3 sisters wilderness but the road was closed so I hiked up Bachelor. Heavy snow and strong winds made it a pretty fun workout.
