      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!

Carved up the north slope below Castle Col today. There was at least 8 inches of new snow. They did not open the gate until 11, the slackers forgot to set their clocks ahead!

No, it was pretty well socked in. A weather system rolled in that trapped the party in low visibility. Snow was still nice and light though, but a pain if you have to break trail. Seems to be warming up however.

My quest for freshiez took me to the selkirks for the week, where I hit the motherlode with Reudi and the SME crew. Seven straight days of fresh tracks in (at least) knee-deep powder, off the summits of 7 or 8 different peaks. I've been in Oregon so long I'd actually forgotten about cold smoke. damn, what am I doing back at work.... ?

So was it sunny above Paradise Iain? The Tatoosh was kinda cloudy all day but it looked like blue sky above the ceiling.

 

Yeah...the Tatoosh was great yesterday!

 

Shred-were you in that group of six yesterday?

Nope...me and a lady friend spent Saturday night below the Pinnacle. I broke trail Sunday morning up to the Saddle and it was pretty brutal! Took a 4:20 break behind a rock near the top and got passed by the throngs up for the day. cantfocus.gif Oh well still plenty of Freshiez for all!

 

Which group were you with? Lots of folks up there on Sunday!

Nice skiing yesterday on Surprise Mountain. Freshiez turned to concrete lower down at the end of the day.

I take it you went in through surprise lake trail, from scenic on US2? How far down is the trail still snow covered? Do you have to walk w/o skis for a while?

We carried them until where the trail steepens and we started postholing (about 2/3 of the way). On the way out we were able to ski all the way down to where the trail crosses the river.
