      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 best is when they fake stretching their calves in the lift line to make it clear to everyone they are on tele gear rolleyes.gif

there was a 2-day tele clinic up here this weekend, thus the influx of people stretching calves in lift lines, and doing unnecessary turns right down low close to the chair yellowsleep.gif

 

saturday was effin sweet. 5" freshish, grotto run, yummy. for some reason people weren't here early on saturday, but the masses came out on sunday, 2" not as good but still plab for the stab. cletus and i wen't over to tumalo after an hour at bachy, excellent skin up, didn't see a soul, and as we crested the ridge we saw the crowd of 20 or so jong's rippin it up on tummelo. boarders who had boot backed all the way up, n00b tele babes falling and messing up untracked freshish. oh well, it was still stellar, some was gotten, and all is plab.

what really looks pathetic is a boarder post holing up a slope in their moon boots, whilst skiers of all persuasions glide past on skins.

and then the subsequent whining on the way down when you stop at a semi-flat spot since they can't get their ass going again. yellaf.gif

Boot packing is lame? Nothing's more lame than riding the lifts. It ain't climbing, it ain't backcountry and it sure as hell ain't where the Freshiez roam most of the time. Fuck the resorts. It's like reading a TR from the gym.

There's nothing wrong with resort skiing. It's fun, and it helps you log enough dh time so when you go bc skiing you can rip it up.

Sure, it's fun. Fun like crack. mushsmile.gif

One little taste and you're hooked. ("This snow seems sketchy, let's go ride.") Next thing ya know, you're just another Romper Suited Tosser cruising the groomiez with your pack on. boxing_smiley.gif "I'm really a backcountry skier. No, REALLY I am! Lookit my bindings!"

yellaf.gif that's awfully ambitious. I routinely startle packs of boarders puffing tough in the woods between runs at mt hood meadows. smoke is just billowing

the boots he has on in the photo are more stylish than the baby-blue denalis. but at least he doesn't look like Sting (i.e. he is not wearing T2's) smirk.gif

Are you referring to Mr. Tripp? If I was his caliber of skier and had to patrol Timberline every day you better believe I'd get bored enough to make the switch! yellaf.gif
