      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!

Truth is if you're skiing anywhere past early July then you're a skiing geek and should be out rock climbing with RuMR

Boy, this whole thread is getting a bit heated. It's all good. Ski locally, get sick, have a blast...

Yeah,right...I'm laughing my ass off...! wave.gif

 

"Truth is if you're skiing anywhere past early July then you're a skiing geek and should be out rock climbing with RuMR "

 

No way,AlpineK! There is such a narrow window of bikini clad ski bunnies that it is tough to miss their annual migration down the slopes and into the local bars... bigdrink.gifblush.gif

 

JayB- Yeah, you are not the only one to notice the lack of running lifts when the real ski season gets rolling...yoy. Most of them follow the market, not the snow. rolleyes.gif

what a bunch of regionalists, get over it!

 

It is all great, depending on how you look at it-

 

Face shots on doubleblack diamonds at Crystal yesterday-

 

Skied the July 1 at Snoqualamie Pass on a ski traverse around Chair peak in shorts two years ago, and the skiing in June is usually excellent in many places in Washington State.

 

but A Basin and the cheap skiing in summit county is great too. Colorado actually has SKI TOWNS, people.

 

hmm, is washington missing something here?

 

the one thing we aren't missing is a hella long season and plenty of good powder.

 

now quit'cher bitching and go get ripping, the snow is excellent!

 

happy tofurkey day!

I think WA skiers would rejoice if you would only move to CO Beck. You could live in a trailer park with a 60 mile commute to your mimimum wage job polishing the boots of rich people. wave.gif

 

When it comes to the best skiing neither CO or WA measure up to BC.

whatever! too bad you can't move to canada, kurt because it sounds like thats where you want to be, hoser! the_finger.gif

 

I know how suck it is for housing in CO, but WA is suck for ski towns. And Canada is pretty suck for americans, coz you ain't canooks! quit yer bitchen, and go out and ride! go enjoy the snow you get, whether it's TLG in CO or BC or WA summer skiing for suntans, just go get some!

 

I don't want to live in a trailer south of leadville so i can work in eagle/ vail-been to Colorada, been there, done that.

telluride ain't boulder. moon.gif

and fremont ain't the center of the universe either. rolleyes.gif

 

why are some of you comparing lift-serviced skiing in colorado with backcountry skiing in washington? wazzup.gif

 

imho, you get more better when you hike for it ... but that doesn't mean the lifts aren't fun -- or useful for accessing "non-lift-accessed" terrain. wave.gif

a very good climber said once (during quarry ice fest)- colorado- florida with hills. it's so fuckin' true. i am sure it has some cool climbing and good skiing, but get over yourself people. as far as skiing goes n. cascades have 10 times the back coutry. vail is not a world class destination for ice.

even rifle isn't so special. newsflash- around canmore there are 15 places like that, so there is no reason to pop big wood about your little playground.

and rudy is right, after about 12 hours in boulder i was ready to go postal....EVERYONE IS SO FUCKING COOL THERE (NOT!). moon.gif

tlg- telluride is still driving distance from boulder. on the top of that you get people from texas hellno3d.gif

Yoy... The 'tude sucks at times in Boulder , for sure, but the outdoor fun factor makes up for it. And if you've got a good group of friends to hang and climb w/ then who gives a shit? Screw the minority of snobbish asses, ya know? It's not like the NW is exempt either,for sure. I sure ran into my share of asses on Rainier, other peaks and absolutely on this website... rolleyes.gif Most people here in CO are laid back and fun anyway-ignore the rest. But some people(like me) get allot out of being able to get off work(an actual real job-something tough to find in 95% of the other outdoor playground towns but not so tough here), walk to Chatauqua park and jog up the 3rd Flatiron for some quick excercise/ fun or go kayaking or whatever, ya know? It's a nice but not perfect place to live and most people take pride in living here. I've never really run into the "One time in band camp,..." mentality for Boulder honestly but I'm sure it exsists. If everyone here offended you then you were probably the one sportin' the 'tude, for sure. moon.gif

yeah, some of my friends moved to colorado too, so what? i am not talking about climbers only. i am talking about people who live in boulder in general. you see, there is a group of very good, motivated and fun indyviduals there. the problem is the number of spray wanna-be, who (for all they care) should live in nebraska or iowa. their idea of great outdoors is going to your local coffee shop and try to look cool, drink their wanna-be cappucino (btw- like 90% of the coffee shops sell wothless swill for very much $$$).

PNW isn't great either this way- trust me- i have waged my war on this site several times and as far as i know i am the only person kicked out of here twice.

Don't worry Beck, I'll get any plenty of skiing here and in BC this winter.

 

I think we've beat this to death
