      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!

BAHRAIN: A WINTRY OASIS

The desert emirate of Bahrain, where summer temperatures hit 122 degrees, is to build a $175 million indoor ski resort on its own reclaimed island, the newspaper Gulf Daily News reported. The resort, Iceberg Tower, which will be developed by BCB Bartels Consult of Berlin, will include areas for skiing, ice climbing, snowboarding, ski-jumping and sledding, the newspaper said. It will also have an ice-sculpture park, an Arctic zoo, a science park and a convention hall. Later plans for the complex include a hotel, a shopping mall, a medical center, a marina and a seaside resort.
