  7. Heehee, kinda funny to compare Jenny Lake with Carbon River.... Wow, it's been a long time since I've seen a manual credit card machine.... but if those things still even exists, sure seems like Carbon River could get one... if it could avoid washing away in the river this fall!

  9. Rainier Avalanche

    Don't jump too quickly to conclusions Dave. You mentioned in a previous post there is a reason that private parties should not be blindly following the guided parties out of Muir. I agree with that. Could it be possible that the lack of NPS climbing rangers since the staff was downsized might have some influence on the private party decision making as could the guide services given the chance to communicate what they are doing. How about the guide service and the NPS do daily updates on the mtn's conditions at the blog? So that incidents like what happened on Wednesday last week were well known? Both the guides services and the NPS climbing rangers make a living off the NP is it asking too much that they make a better effort to open access to the park and offer up the little information they do glean on the mtn in a public forum? I think there are several issues here that could be done better to everyone's benefit. Which is why I am wasting the time to day to make the point. Anyone spending anytime out of doors last week could have told you that avy conditions were off the hook. Having an updated blog might have swayed a couple of people, but there are numerous websites out there that provide that same sort of valuable info. I am sure that any ranger at Paradise could have shared that same info. Look the fact that this guy didn't register means nothing to the outcome of the situation. A massive avalanche occurred, climbers were in the path, a climber died. Knowing who he was wouldn't have saved him. Dane sounds to me like you got scorned by the solo permit process this year. I can understand frustration. But how is the solo permit process in any way an underlying factor in this accident...?!?! When I read this thread, it sounds to me like a lot of indirect blame is being cast. I think it is absolutely out of line to imply that any of the rangers at Mount Rainier (or any of the guides, guide companies, etc) were in any way personally liable for this incident. This is sad. A sad, sad tale.

    I hope that you are still posting here in 10-15 years, I'd love to hear your opinions on this then.
  11. Big Brother expands it's surveillance of you

    Ummm this is the most ridiculous thread I have ever read. No matter how legitimate anyone may believe this dude's words to be, you CANNOT seriously believe that the Forest Service has the $$$$ to buy install monitor service and maintain cameras on every single one of its roads?!?!!? The FOREST SERVICE?!?! I know everyone loves a good conspiracy story, but let's get real. The USFS doesn't even have money to repair most of the roads that wash out. I have a few friends that do or have worked for the Forest Service, I know that occasionally they install cameras for wildlife surveys or specific criminal issues like pot grow sites, meth labs, or illegal dumping sites. Maybe that's what these people found in the forests. But seriously. The Forest Service has like one law enforcement officer per 100,000 acres or something. No way do they possibly monitor cameras on all of their roads.
  12. FS: Expedition Gear etc

    Western Mountain Hot Sac Vapor Barrier Liner. Brand new, never used, tags still attached. 4.5 oz. Retails for $90, yours for $50. This fire engine red vapor barrier liner is your most important companion for those technical winter trips. A VBL works by stopping heat loss from evaporative cooling. A VBL will also prevent your body vapor from degrading your insulation. This is most important during extended stays inside your bag. Our Hot Sac™ VBL goes one step further by stopping radiant heat loss with its reflective metal coating. An elastic draw cord at the top of the Hot Sac™ cinches about your neck to prevent convective heat loss. This proprietary fabric is a new lightweight ripstop. The new Hot Sac™ weighs only 4.5 ounces and is light enough to carry on day trips as an emergency bivy. Alpine Design Expedition Mitts. Size Large. Super warm and in great condition - used only a few times, no rips, spots, abrasions. Extremely warm and suitable for Alaska/Himalayan expeditions. Made in Nepal - extremely high quality. Just way too big for me. Easy-to-use one handed drawcords, adjustable wrist strap for better fit. $50. Asolo plastic climbing boots, women size 7. Green. Old and well used, but still in great condition and very comfortable! $50 Send PM.
  13. Looking for a place to go backcountry skiing north of the 90 corridor, maybe around highway 2 somewhere. Anyone know of any good areas with pretty low avy exposure? Thanks!
  14. Mt. Bachelor Closed to Uphill Traffic!!

    Un-fuck themselves - Love it, love it, love it!!! Seriously, Bachelor's "new management" claimed to be appealing to the general public and the season pass holder for the past two years - Whatever!!! Things have been getting worse and worse for the season pass holder over the past few years. Bachelor can't open half of their terrain on the average day due to weather conditions, and now they won't even allow the die-hard backcountry enthusiast to access it themselves. So over Bachelor!!!!
  15. Unnamed lake - NW corner of park

    Super easy to get to! Just follow the NPS boundary trail from the Rainforest Loop Trail, or the marked NPS boundary, up to the top of Alki Crest. Steep, but easy to follow. Then bushwhack up the crest to the lake. If the timber is huge, you can assume that it is *fairly* well protected from avalanches. And there is huge timber up to Alki Crest. You just need to know what is above, and in this case. it's mostly timbered slopes above without substantial open slopes.
