The 60 routes here feature overall difficulty ratings, elevation and terrain, estimated skiing times, USGS topographical maps, skill levels required, and much more. Van Tilburg includes expert advice on safety, glaciers, and avalanche precautions, and details routes from Mount Hood to Mount Bachelor to Willamette Pass, as well as southwest Washington's Mount St. Helens and Mount Adams.
