      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] Mount Ann - The path of powder, part deux 12/28/2020

Trip: Mount Ann - The path of powder, part deux

Trip Date: 12/28/2020

Trip Report:

Well, @Alisse is right.  We need more ski TRs!  Or at least more pretty pictures of snowy mountains.  Which is what this is, more or less.  It was a typical day for @Trent ,@kmfoerster, and I in the Baker backcountry so not much to report other than good snow, great company, and a fun day out and about.  After a couple laps on the north side of Ann my legs were tired on the grind out of Swift Creek, but that isn't new. 

Hoping the freezing level comes down and the skies clear after all this weather!

Gear Notes:
Skis people (or a splitboard if you are slow, like me)! I saw snowshoe tracks further down Swift Creek than I ever had before. What is wrong with people??!!

Approach Notes:
Follow the skin track

We thought we'd lost them to the  surrounding clouds, but Kulshan and Shuksan ended up putting on a show.
