      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!

A Positive Experience on Rainier...

Recommended Posts

...after all the Dan - Shit going down.

 

I went up to Camp Muir yesterday for the first time and skied down.

 

It was nice, quiet, and fucking cool.

 

The day was blue-fucking-bird, baby!

 

One other guy was up there ahead of me.

 

It was my first ski run of the season (and it showed in my grace smirk.gif).

 

Some clouds rolled in from the South as I started my descent; snow was hard and nice from about 9,000' to about 6,500'. Just like groomers.

 

That bitch, better known as the Nisqually Glacier tried to lure me into her clutches amidst the cloudbank I skied into above Pan Point, but Mr. Trusty Compass foiled her plot.

 

Below Pan Point it was slush-city.

 

Finished it all off with an "Overload" burger at the Scale Shack in scenic Elbe.

P.S. Thanks to Lisa at Marmot for selling me those glacier glasses - they be phuckin' pimp!

greg you realize you cannot claim to being on rainier without giving, gps cordinates, 3 independent witnesses and you are required to smoke a fatty at muir!

 

otherwise your trip is invalid.

There's a nice gully that drops onto the Nisqually from the Muir snowfield. It really makes the ski down rockband.gif

 

I skied it the last time I was at Muir, which was Muir on Saturday.

This one drops from below the Muir Snofield -- not quite as exciting as the one higher up that AlpineK may be referring to, perhaps, but its pretty good.
