      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] Baker backcountry - Swift trees 12/19/2020

Trip: Baker backcountry - Swift trees

Trip Date: 12/19/2020

Trip Report:

This is the saddest forum of this entire website. Let's not let TAY be the sole source of snow-sliding stories!

I know this is now irrelevant conditions information, but I thought the forum needed love. Got out yesterday before the big warm-up. Weather was better than expected for most of the day (things didn't get super windy and snow didn't start falling much until around 2pm) and snow was about what I expected... not all-time, but definitely not bad! 

Did a total of seven laps (that's not that much when each lap is ridiculously short, approximately 350') and the skins-inside-the-jacket strategy was key. Pics:



Gear Notes:
Full rocker

Approach Notes:
A hop, skip, and a jump from the Heather Meadows lot

Guess I wasn't logged in, and it gave me an error message... weird. 

Pics (pardon my bad photo editing skills with trying to balance the white):

Thanks for the reminder to post up some ski TRs @Alisse!

And I think we must have been close to crossing paths that morning on the way out of the lot.
