      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!

Lake Chelan Sawtooth SKIING (???)

Recommended Posts

Anyone out there ever ski in the Lake Chelan Sawtooths? I've spent time out there in the summer and fall....always dreaming of ski lines. Seems like access is tricky but possible with a sled. Coverage probably varies year to year but I'd think there would be enough to ski. Since moving to CO I'm learning you don't need much.

Horsethief Basin, October 2020

Don't know when a trip would actually materialize to explore the area, but it's definitely on my bucket list if anyone else is equally curious!

You bring the sled, I'll bring the beers! But.. you live in CO now ? 

 

Tumbleweeds sound better for my ski bases than rocks...

I do, but not permanently! I'm here for the winter and La Nina isn't being nice to us. Had me dreaming of WA adventures. Just trying to see if anyone had fun stories or exciting pictures of Sawtooth skiing. 

I wouldn't be surprised if I'm back in WA next winter. In that case...you have a deal!!

I'm sure plenty of Methow locals have explored it via the Twisp River RD. Tons of awesome terrain there, but harder access than WA pass as far as sled skiing.
