  1. Pink Snow

    Has anyone seen dark pink/red snow while out in the mountains lately? I'm working with a professor from WWU who researches snow algae. We are on the hunt for big, brightly colored blooms. Any leads appreciated.

  3. Pink Snow

    Getting paid to go to the Pickets, sounds cool. It's not rare. What is uncommon, and hard to catch in the right window, is the large and very darkly colored blooms.

  5. Pink Snow

    Dr. Robin Kodner at WWU. Here are some links that might be useful. (https://kodnerlab.wordpress.com/citizen-science/ , https://cedar.wwu.edu/wwuet/853/ <- recent masters student thesis, https://wwu.maps.arcgis.com/apps/Cascade/index.html?appid=c8365e49603a4bc8a73eb1d7a4d070bc). We engage with the climbing community too to collect samples for us. I linked our website where you can check it out and get involved if you want to carry a kit and collect some samples!
  6. Stehekin BC skiing

    Any beta for skiing in the Stehekin area in winter? Some friends and I are planning for a multiday trip after the new year. I was looking at the McAlster pass Rainbow Lake area, but really not to sure. Would love to hear anyones suggestions or beta for this area in the winter.
  7. Trip: North Cascades - Sahale Arm/Cascade Pass Date: 11/10/2017 Trip Report: Early start out of Bellingham led us up cascade river round right as the sun was rising. Road closed at mile 21, bare pavement to just about the TH. Coverage was a little thin, but things are filling in nicely! We were able to start skining about a half mile before Cascade Pass. The arm was completely wind scoured. Skinable up, bot skiable down (especially since all three of us were on new skis and a little over protective of our fresh bases lol) This led us to some laps almost down to the lake on some fun north facing slopes with great snow! All south aspects were not so fun. Never a bad day out in the Cascades, especially when it's bluebird
