      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!

Washington Sno-Parks site evaluations

Recommended Posts

Have you experienced issues with Sno-Parks not being plowed? I've run into this issue at Cougar Sno-Park on St. Helens multiple times. Turns out, the work is done by contractors, not the state, and the state has no way to verify the work is being done unless reports are made to them. Previously, you had to find their number and call. 

However, there is now an online reporting form:
