      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!

Chair Peak - Found skis, boots, jacket, and pants

Recommended Posts

I assume that this mystery has been solved, but while descending from Chair peak on Sunday, I found some relics of the 80s that are just emerging from the tongue of the snow field in the Chair Peak basin, just above the Thumbtack. There was a set of rusty broken 85 mm skis, ski boots, ski pants, and a ski jacket. Picture below. Please share the story if you know it?!

Sorry if this was posted on the wrong page. I am new to Cascade Climbers.

I saw the same gear posted on the TAY FB group recently. According to the comments they belong to a guy who used to ski Chair peak so regularly he just stashed his gear up there so he didn't need to carry it up each time. He injured his hip and never bothered to reclaim it.

Thanks for the responses. I am still befuddled by the idea of just stashing ski pants and a jacket outside for the winter, but it sounds like the mystery was indeed solved. I am glad that it was a boring story and nothing more.
