      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!

Silver Star Mt.

Recommended Posts

Has anyone skied this before. In Backcountry ski Oregon it has a trip in there on Arvie's Glade. Have not been out since this last dump we got. The elevation is 3200". Just wondering if it got any of this freezing rain we have had?

I've skied Silver Star several times, but always in the Spring. The East facing slopes off the South summit are where it's at. The approach around the S. side of Pyramid Rock is easier than the N. side road, imo. Dodge's book lists a ski tour that goes out the Skamania Mines road past Chimney Rock (also a great ski destination. take gear!) Then it crosses over to Bald Mtn and the Silver Star group, closing the loop on that road S. from Grouse Vista. That tour always sounded like fun to me. Have to be a great snow year 'tho... (???) In "Snow Trails", Gene Prater mentions night touring up to Silver Star to view the lights of Portland.
