  1. Staying on the ridge is dope. Au cheval and airy. Highly recommended.
  2. Expert Advice Chair Peak

    It was looking plenty fat a couple weeks ago. Same with the NEB. I bet it will be fine after the pineapple too.
  3. Multi day ski mountaineering packs

    Check out the Cold Cold World Chernobyl and Chaos. Ski, climb, and carry well. No Zippers, removable top lid. Reasonable weight with bomber construction. Haven't bought one in awhile but customizations were easy and fairly priced.
  4. Trip: Ski In 2012 - Whistler, Hinkhouse-ish, Silver Star - Date: 5/11/2012 Trip Report: Headed up to WA Pass last weekend to do some skiing. Left on Friday morning from Seattle. Didn't make the best time because of a false start due to a forgotten backpack, Jack In The Box for a lunch/breakfast, and stop at Darrington Shell station for provisions. Given that we weren't making great time and the superb weather we took the oppourtnity to pull over at some of the pull-offs to take a look at Colonial and Hozomeen through the binocs. It was about 12:30 by the time we passed Rainy Pass so our motivation to do a big tour was waning. We pulled over at the Bridge Creek TH and decided to ski what I later found out to be Whistler Mountain. We packed light grabbed a couple of 22's and headed up. The snow was great and we skied down just in time to meet our buddy who was coming over from Spokane. He was eager to ski after getting a late start due to work so we debated on what to ski next. We ended up just parking at the WA Pass overlook road and headed up toward Hinkhouse Peak. We made it down just in time to ski corn before it got crusty. The next day we met up with the Ski In folks and skied Silverstar. It got pretty warm on the approach up to the larches. But the ski down was all good. Decided to go skiers right on the descent figuring the aspect was a little less cooked. Great snow the whole way down. We then retired to the cabin property and had beers and brats. All in all a great weekend and thanks to Dave and Kurt for the hospitality. It was a good time with good people.
  5. High Ice 1980's climbing movie

    It's was filmed on White Horse.
  6. Bay Area a good move?

    I'm pretty sure as an Alaskan you're only entitled to make fun of a handful of states and California isn't one of them.
  7. New Forum

    Lemme guess... seatposts but no saddles?
  8. BORING!

    Is this better? So you got the entire internet at your fingertips and these are your two choices? Really? Oh and +1
  9. Interested in "No Boundaries" ski patrolling?

    So what exactly does "backcountry" ski patrol do? One of the beauties of backcountry skiing is the absence of ski patrol and all of the tasks they typically perform. I’m just having a hard time reconciling one of the major things that defines inbounds skiing with the backcountry. Maybe I’m thinking about this wrong and it’s just a search and rescue type group. "Our goal is to be the recognized leader in avalanche and mountain travel and rescue training within the region..." What is that statement all about? Whose recognition are you seeking? I could see this being some kind of MLU flavored regulation being talked about in Olympia after some accident.
  10. GOP to waterboard Cheney

    I thought most of the discussion has centered around the legal issue of torture and not moral one. Both the killing of civilians and torture are indefensible by any reasonable standard of morality. Point is, if we hung people at Nuremberg for the exact same acts our government sanctioned. We should then apply the same standards to ourselves. Unfortunately, as JosephH stated we continue to disregard the constitution and rule of law in favor of political gains and cronyism. As for protectionism, I think both parties can be found equally guilty. Even the ole Gipper.
  11. CC Online Ticklist?

    There's this spreadsheet program called Excel, it's pretty sweet.
  12. Local Conservation Charities

    Care to share your favorite local non-profit organization that is focused on conservation work in the Cascades?
  13. Nothing?

    I heard it's a sex act involving a governor's daughter, a back pack, and just emptied can of Skoal.
  14. palin pregnancy

    You're about as vile as it gets. And a DNC activist too. Can't imagine why anyone would vote Republican. what do you expect from a hate-filled person with no purpose in life? We know his real name. How 'bout we link his bile here to an email and send it to the state D-party HQ? Might cost him that (fantasy-only) delegate job he likes to brag about. Come on, you could do better. What about Hitler and the Nazi's? If you were to liken his views to their views you surely would have won this argument.
  15. No You Can't!

    I cringed during the DNC when Jimmy Carter, in that sweet southern drawl, after saying how excited he was that the country has come this far, said something like Obama was a real bright Boy. Called dude a boy. I cringed. BTW, having Republicans in will help balance the democratic controlled congress. McCain has spoken publicly that supreme court justices should be picked with NO litmus test on abortion, and that they must not be the type that legislates from the bench, but are judging from strictly constitutional principles. I'm leaning towards Obama, but I suspect he'll fuc*k the country up pretty bad. Palins comment rang true with me and cracked me up: "I guess a small-town mayor is sort of like a 'community organizer,' except that you have actual responsibilities." What has Obama done? Seriously, hes never had to meet a payroll or create a single job. Ever. "Community organizer" sounds like a person who fills out government forms to try to get government grants for "The Community". Is that and being a lawyer now seriously now a qualification to be President? Those who don't think Obama will f*up this country real bad are running on wishful thinking. I wish I wish I wish all you want, he has NO track record. ".....a small-town mayor is sort of like a 'community organizer,' except that you have actual responsibilities." Think about that. Are you one of these dumbassed "independent swing voters" that needs a refresher course or a recap every time someone makes a speech or have you been asleep for the last six months? If you want to know what Obama's record of service looks like why don't you do some internet research. I did and the word "present" came up a lot. Present eh? Let's play match that ticket. 1) -BA Columbia -Harvard Law Magna Cum Laude -Taught constitutional law at the University of Chicago Law School -University Delaware -Syracuse Law -Lawyer 2) -Naval Academy (rank 894 of 899) -Served as Officer in Vietnam -University of Idaho -Sports reporter intern Which resume belongs to which party?
