      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!

The Ascending Path located in Girdwood AK is in need of a part-time climbing guide this summer. Applicants should have extensive glacier and rock guiding experience and a love of Girdwood. We will be guiding day trips through Alyeska Resort. Please submit your resume to Heather Rowland at info@theascendingpath.com. Thanks!

HaHa, what a fucking joke. 90 bucks to hike on the alyeska glacier. it is about the size of 2 football fields and has one crevass. the pics on the website that say it is alyeska glacier are not even close to it, the pics are actually of a climber on denali. plus you will have to dodge all the skiers and snowboarders for most of the summer that are up there for jump camp. on top of that, there is nowhere on the glacier that you cant go without running shoes. all i can say is cleaning floors with a tooth brush would be less of a boring summer.

"Groups meet twice daily at the base of the Alyeska Resort Tramway in beautiful Girdwood valley. After an introduction and brief trip explanation, we ride the Tram to the Glacier Express Lodge atop Mt.Alyeska. A gentle 40 minute hike leads us to glaciers' edge. Here, we will put on over-boots, a harness and "rope up" to walk out onto the glacier itself, examining features such as bergschrunds and crevasses up close! While on the glacier, we will discuss the unique geological features specific to glaciers. For example, moats, lateral, medial and terminal moraine, firn line, nunataks, etc. will all be explained.

Trips include interpretive glaciology discussions, a small guest to guide ratio (4:1), great views of the 7 glaciers in the Girdwood bowl, a round trip Tram ticket and over-boot rentals. Please bring sturdy footwear, water, a snack, your camera and appropriate clothing. "

 

Ok so it doesn't look like the best guiding job in the world, but hiking with gapers fosters valuable outdoor awareness and is much better than sitting behind a 'puter talking to you wankers.

ERIK, did you say that I spamed one of your emails??? i sure as shit didnt.

 

As for the trip, if it takes you 40 minutes to get to the glacier from the top of the tram then your going negative speed.
