      WELCOME TO THE CASCADECLIMBERS.COM FORUMS   02/03/18

      We have upgraded to new forum software as of late last year, and it makes everything here so much better!  It is now much easier to do pretty much anything, including write Trip Reports, sell gear, schedule climbing related events, and more. There is a new reputation system that allows for positive contributors to be recognized,  it is possible to tag content with identifiers, drag and drop in images, and it is much easier to embed multimedia content from Youtube, Vimeo, and more.  In all, the site is much more user friendly, bug free, and feature rich!   Whether you're a new user or a grizzled cascadeclimbers.com veteran, we think you'll love the new forums. Enjoy!

Trip: Mt Baker - Easton Glacier

 

Date: 6/22/2016

 

Trip Report:

Taylor and I enjoyed an awesome ski in a tight but gorgeous weather window last week. Volcano season is in FULL SWING right now, so go get the goods before all the snow bridges get droopy.

Gear Notes:

Skis. You'd have to be crazy to want to walk both up and down this thing.

Atomic Ultimate 78s with mohair race skins. No ski crampons. Real crampons optional for skiers depending on time of day.

 

Approach Notes:

A bit of snow on the trail yields to dry hiking up the railroad grade. Higher camps weren't melted out so we camped in the highest trees and were happy for it.
