  2. EL Nino and avalanche danger on Mt. Hood this year

    I see two books by Tremper, "Staying Alive in Avalanche Terrain" and "Avalanche Essentials". Is one better than the other? I'll look into a class and see if I can afford it. thanks for the advice!

    Everyone has input - that's sort of the curse and the blessing of the internet, isn't it?
  4. EL Nino and avalanche danger on Mt. Hood this year

    First time ever. I'm gonna defer to the wisdom of whoever I go with cause I don't have the experience to make the call myself. Thanks for the advice, appreciated!
  5. Hi all I am interested in climbing Mt. Hood for the first time this winter. I have some understanding of avalanche safety, and I'm given to understand that the El Nino Climate Oscillation may bring about unsafe climbing conditions. From what I can tell this will come from a lot of snow dump followed by a warming trend, which can result in an unstable snow mass and increased avalanche danger. Any thoughts on this? Is there somewhere I can go for up to date information about this? Being my first time, I'm taking the safest route possible with an experienced climber, of course, but I'm also interested in learning how to approach the situation safely and doing the snow pack research myself. Thanks!
