      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!

Snowing at the Hole.

Skibowl re-opens for apre’ work fun!

I skinned to the top o’ canyon two weekends ago and the coverage wasn’t that bad (not that it was good…) They’ve picked-up 6” of new in the last 24hrs, and they probably got about that over the weekend, so things may be picking back up for America’s largest night ski area.

So I saw that claim that they are the world's largest night skiing place before, but the one time I was up there I thoguht that alpental+snoqualmie looked considerably larger. Which is funny, cause snoqualmie claims they are the bigget. boxing_smiley.gif

OH YEAH??? OH YEAH???

Well, well… oh well.

 

I really have no idea. But if SkiHole says it snowed a foot last night I always adjust my expectations accordingly. rolleyes.gif

 

I heard someone from the Northern side of the Medicine Line take umbrage with their hype too. Seems there’s a Canadian resort claiming to be the “Largest Night Skiing Area in North America!”

 

Long as it's snowin', who cares? bigdrink.gif

Yeah, they all lie. My favorite are the snow reports where they claim it snowed 8" the night before, yet their base total increased like 14" from the day before. Uh huh...sounds like somebody put the snow depth measurement stick in a nice wind loaded area. wazzup.gif

 

The lake tahoe areas are the best at this. They lie about their base totals like no other. I remember the huge la nina snow year when kirkwood would post ridiculous snow base totals just to stay close or above baker, which got like 50% more snow than them. Silly ski areas... rolleyes.giffruit.gif
