      WELCOME TO THE CASCADECLIMBERS.COM FORUMS   02/03/18

      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!

Trip: Silver Star Mountain - Silver Star Glacier

Trip Report:

Current conditions on Silver Star Mountain are pretty good for Skiing.  Unfortunately, I booted my way up SS Glacier on 5/19 via Silver Star Creek! It was a lot of work in bad conditions.  Snow coverage became consistent around 5000 feet.  Full trip report: Spokalpine

Gear Notes:
No crampons needed

Approach Notes:

D'oh!  Thanks for the report, and glad you made it happen despite the suffering.

I think with the new site you could just cut and paste the content directly from your blog @The Real Nick Sweeney?  You know, for those too lazy to follow your link....Thanks for considering it!

Oh, and you saw the views on Sunday.  I was going to ask about that.  Ouch, that makes it even more painful.  In the future, I've found the UW model to be the best predictor of clouds and rain coverage, esp. 24-48 hours out.  I use the 4km loops for 1 hr. precip and Column integrated cloud water.   It was spot on this past weekend.

Driving down 20 coming into Mazama I did not see any on the main body of Goat, a smidge on the hill to the north of Goat Peak.
