      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!

Yo Shred, would you mind telling us the location of your favorite top-secret powder stashes on Mt. Hood? I'm a Californicator (lived in Lake Tahoe previously) who is spending their first complete winter in Oreghan--have sympathy for me!

Yeah but I'm from California and I drive a big SUV. Doesn't that mean I should get special treatment?

Hoody Meadows was yesterday's destination. They did indeed get 8"s however there was some remarkable funk going on in the snow, did it fall that heavy or was it just super wind affected? Either way yesterday was not a softshell day, not becaue it was wet but because the wind was absurd. Which brings me to my next point, I'm not sure what I was more disappointed by: the snow, wearing a softshell or forgetting my wind meter. I left at 11:30 to go skate skiing.

 

PS: Jack's Woods opened right before I left, for those who skied it was it as heavy as elsewhere?

We were too late. Sat night at Ski Bowl, raining to not raining and heavy. Broke my own rule about not skiing in the rain. Today back to the Ski Bowl, which is startlingly reminiscent of Ski Acres, for full on spring slushiez.

 

All in all neither the skiing nor the conditions hoped for, but our three compatriots with their "power snowplow" technique got a good workout on black diamond groomers, and a few tips (like get some weight on them! don't look at your skis!) and an all-in-all fun weekend of what I affectionately call "family skiing."

 

It was downright HOT up there today. FWIW there is an online coupon for Ski Bowl, half off, (on their website) so it's as cheap as it is low-quality. fruit.gif
