  1. idea MYOG - Gear mod's and personal creations.

    Maybe, probably? I haven't seriously looked into it. Trying to keep a dying forum alive
  2. idea MYOG - Gear mod's and personal creations.

    Love the thread! Tinkering with gear... something low-risk we can do at home! Let's see... I won't take credit for coming up with this: when the foam grips on my ski poles started coming off, I tore them off completely and replaced them with rubber electrical tape -- and extended them further down the pole to give me more options for where to grip it. I would love to hear what other people have done to create a secure water bottle holder on a backpack shoulder strap.

  9. Trip: Arrowhead Mountain - West "face" Trip Date: 03/01/2020 Trip Report: Rang in the new month with a trip up Arrowhead Mountain. Mostly sunny in the morning, good views from the saddle (wow, Chiwakums!), but things turned to breezy opaque gray in the afternoon. Thank you for the kind souls who put in the skin track for 80% of things! Ended up booting the last 20 minutes or so on the ridge. No views at the summit, unfortunately, but yipees and yahoos were heard as we surfed through blower pow on a supportable crust. Going up.... This was easier than the alternative... in that moment... I think?! And coming down!! It was a good day. Gear Notes: Normal things, perhaps a whippet and ski pons would be wise next time.... Approach Notes: Park at the maintenance shed and use the road... otherwise, you are doomed to schwack for at least a bit!
  10. Awwwww yeah!! Glad to see you stoked on the skiing, @JasonG
  11. Saturday around 6:30 AM as I walked to my car, I came across a pair of AT ski boots strewn in the grass next to the sidewalk near E Mercer St and 13th Ave E. I didn't see any other gear around, and I didn't see any signs of a break-in/broken glass. I know that the owner is probably sincerely missing their boots! Contact me if you think these are your missing boots.
  12. [TR] Stevens Pass - Yodelin 02/17/2020

    Yahoo! My friend Deb and I were out there, too, I'm sure we chatted at some point. It was a stupendous day! Face shot after face shot!
  13. I am selling a NEW Patagonia women's small Nano-air hoody in color "strait blue." It is too small for me. I tried it on once; the tags are still attached. $160 firm.- Stretchy, breathable fabric combines a plain-weave liner, 60g warm-when-wet synthetic insulation and a weather-shedding ripstop shell with a durable water repellent (DWR)- 60g FullRange® insulation warms and stretches; combined with the shell and lining, this creates excellent mechanical stretch and unprecedented air permeability (40 CFM)- Soft, supple feel and full mechanical stretch allow uninhibited range of motion and an updated, athletic fit over base layers- Articulated patterning and quilting improve shape and durability- Trim, stretchy hood with elastic binding fits snugly, yet also still fits over low-profile helmets- Above-harness handwarmer pockets and smaller chest pocket all close with trim, low-bulk zippers- Center-front zipper has a stormflap and zipper garage for next-to-skin comfort- Dual-adjustable drawcord hem seals in warmth; refined cuffs feature sleek, low-bulk, stretch-knit insetsI bought it on Enwild.com and as they don't have a larger size, and I don't want store credit, it makes more sense for me to see if I can sell it here to recup the cost.I got a free Enwild unisex XS t-shirt with the purchase. If you want it, I will throw that in for free.

  15. Freshiezzzzz

    This forum needs some ACTION!!! Got lots of freshies around Herman Saddle on Sunday. Headed there after running into a party that triggered a storm slab/partial burial on a steeper slope in Mazama Bowl. Stay safe out there! I know he's on a splitboard, but he's still a good guy: Sweet animation of someone wiping out: Beautiful: Big smiles:
