      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!

[TR] Green Mtn Lookout - South Slope 12/02/2018

Recommended Posts

Trip: Green Mtn Lookout - South Slope

Trip Date: 12/02/2018

Trip Report:

After arriving at the trailhead with no snow to be found, we agreed to hike for a while to see if we could find some.  I believe we hiked a couple of miles to approximately 5,000' before finding enough snow to start skinning.  By the time we reached the south face, there was 12" of boney (but solid) base with 3" of semi-bonded fresh snow and grauple.  We took a short break at the top and had an unexpectedly fun 1,200' run.  We continued to push our luck down to 5,000 where the brush put an abrupt end to my run with a fabulous digger into some rocks. Except for Kit, he managed another 500' of tremendous brush and rock skiing.   We didn't see anyone else out, which always makes me wonder what I'm doing wrong. Remarkably satisfying first ski outing of the season.

Where are we supposed to ski?

That's what we came for -

Nah I think you're doing it exactly right.
