We had an awesome time on our Mount Hood trip, full of new experiences. Those from warmer climates had their first adventures in feet of snow, and even seasoned veterans of snowy winters got to try new things, from snowshoeing to cross country skiing to cosmic snow tubing. Here are some highlights from the trip!
Cross country skiing! Ron leads the pack.
Emma, Ari and Lauren put in some time on the inside of the growing igloo, packing in the snow that others shoveled.
The igloo is gaining height… and luckily, someone thought to label it!
After many hours, the igloo crew had a lot to be proud of. Here’s the finished product!
Lauren, Mea and Calvin work on a snow tribute to the beloved cat who lives next door to the bayit.
None of the Tivnoodles had ever traveled by snowshoe before. But with the feet of snow we were crossing, the gear was invaluable.
Safety first! All the Tivnuniks learned how to put chains on the van’s tires so we could navigate safely through the snow.
Calvin and Lauren test out a prop from “The Shining” as we tour Timberline Lodge, which is featured in the movie.
Ari and Lauren test out a multi-seater snow tube under the lights of “cosmic snow tubing”.
The crowd goes wild at our cozy cabin karaoke night.
