      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!

Climb: Alpental-Eisfallen

 

Date of Climb: 1/21/2004

 

Trip Report:

Hey, I went skiing up at Alpental and scoped out Stellar (aka Chairlift) Falls last night. Just wanted to let you know its in but thin. This weekend should fatten it up, and should be in good form on Monday.

Last year I stated that I thought there was significant potential for us to get in conflict with the ski area when climbing at Chairlift Falls, and my suggestion that we should keep a low profile when climbing there was taken by some as criticism. However, in light of the recent "issue" over the alpental back country route (both the reason for and the eventual outcome of which are not entirely clear as far as I know), might a suggestion that folks "tread lightly" be advised? Do you have any suggestions about this? Is Monday a day that the ski area will be closed?

I think your "tread lightly" suggestion is a good one. As long as they continue to let us use their parking lots to access the backcountry. It's a long walk from the PCT Trailhead lot, but that would be a logical lot to plow for Commonealth access.

yes, I believe Monday is the day Alpental is closed. We suggested in our guidebook flat out that this is the best day to climb this route, as the ski patrol and the ski area wont hassle you then.
