Depending on snow, we'll tour either up and over Panorama Point and down Mazama Ridge, or just go direct Mazama and find some nice turns on the East side bowls. Alternatively, we could head to Castle /pinnacle saddle if north aspects have better snow. In any case, this trip is designed for the first-of-the-season outing on skis and chance to warm up the ski gear for bigger trips later.
