      We have upgraded to new forum software as of late last year, and it makes everything here so much better!  It is now much easier to do pretty much anything, including write Trip Reports, sell gear, schedule climbing related events, and more. There is a new reputation system that allows for positive contributors to be recognized,  it is possible to tag content with identifiers, drag and drop in images, and it is much easier to embed multimedia content from Youtube, Vimeo, and more.  In all, the site is much more user friendly, bug free, and feature rich!   Whether you're a new user or a grizzled cascadeclimbers.com veteran, we think you'll love the new forums. Enjoy!

[TR] Mount St Helens - Worm Flows 04/22/2018

Recommended Posts

Trip: Mount St Helens - Worm Flows

Trip Date: 04/22/2018

Trip Report:


One million of my best friends and I were on MSH today.


We left the Marble Mountain SnoPark at 3:30 AM, able to ski from the parking lot! I got a whole lot of practice with my ski crampons! Up to the crater rim a bit past 9, hung out in the sun for about an hour and a half, then skiied some amazing AMAZING snow -- ah yes, this is what they call corn -- under a bluebird sky!!!!!!! I love spring skiing!!!

I got to ski most of it in a tank top and rolled-up pants. 😁😁😁

Got a little sticky toward the bottom of the fun, but not too bad. On a few of the steeper parts we skiied, we saw some rollerballs and one very small wet loose slide.

What an amazing day!!!


So much better than hiking Monitor Ridge in August!

Gear Notes:
Sunscreen, ski crampons, patience

Approach Notes:
Snow from the TH!

Got any photos to share?  How much snow still at the car?

There's about a foot and a half of snow out of the parking lot.

I took a lot of photos but they're on my camera and I don't have a way here at home to upload them. I'll post a few once I get them off the camera.
