  1. Wanted - Dynafit Toe Pieces

    They don't have to be in mint shap, just good enough for a touring modification that I'm working on for my splitboard. Zach
  2. Denali ski partners

    Woah... I was just about to post the same request... definitely shoot me an email; zach@couloirmag.com Zach
  3. Heads up for Avy danger this weekend

    Any feelings on the Fuhrer Finger (Rainier), by Monday/Tuesday??? Hang out by the Wilson and watch the weather for a few days, or go for something safer? I'm becoming more and more inclined to ditch this route for something less of a gully.
  4. We are currently 2, split-boarding... definitely looking for a board descent. Skiers or borders are welcome. Options that we have looked at, so far, are the Fuhrer Finger or the Success Couloirs... definitely open to other routes, nothing too technical. Looking for a 3rd with proper glacier travel technique. We'll be driving up from SF, after work on Friday of Memorial Day weekend... we may extend the trip into the following Tuesday, but prefer to be off the mountain by Monday. Zach
  5. Updated Info 5-6-04

    Mike, Thanks for theupdate. Do you or anyone else have any info on the conditions on the Fuhrer Finger? We're looking to split-board it, at the end of this month. Zach
  6. Snowboard descent from Camp Muir

    Board - Prior Split 172 Boots - Asolo AFS8000 Liner - Snowboard Boot Liner or Garmont Therm-Fits (still adjusting the fit), with a power-strap stitched to the portion of the liner that extends above the boot. Binding - Strap bindings I've tried AT boots with plate bindings (great climbing, terrible ride), soft-boots with standard binding set-up (great ride, seriously sketchy climbing), and now the above set-up. The above is perfect for split-boarding and mountaineering... climbs well, and rides just like a soft boot - nice and surfy, and the higher liner savalves from saves your calves from getting bashed ny the high back. Oh, yeah... and get a split-board. It's the only choice. Snowshoeing sucks ass.
  7. Awaiting the Rapture???

    Assholes My dad is one of these nutjobs, and I tell him so constantly. The worst part - if you disagree with them, it just further enforces their overall sense of persecution.. and as we all know, persecution=righteousness. God help us if ding-dong somehow gets reelected. Zach
  8. [TR] Mt. Rainier- Fuhrer Finger 4/12/2004

    Mr. Radon, Did you ski the Finger? If so, how was it? I'm looking to Split-Board it as soon as my climbing partner comes bcak from Holland - early May. Zach
  9. Success Couloir (s)???

    Does anyone have experience skiing these? Are they worth the long aproach? Any better route reccomendations? My partner and I would like to make a snowboard descent from the summitt, this Spring. We'll be on split-boards. Zach
  10. Snowboard route recommendations - Rainier

    The Finger looks like fun... thanks for the pictures. Anyone familiar with Success Couloir? Zach
  11. My climbing partner and I are planning to head up to Rainier this Spring. Can anyone offer recommendations for routes that would make for good snowboard descents? 2 routes that we have been scoping are: Fuhrer Finger Success Couloir Please include your impression of the difficluty of the route, both ascending and descending. We would be stoked to find an ascent route of moderate technical difficulty (we may bring a small rock-climbing rack, but not a true ice-climbing rack), with a good, steep descent (40-50 degrees, possibly with tight chutes). Thanks, Zach
