      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!

I'm for sure into doing some skiing. I'd like to summit one of the volcanoes or do something long and and adventureous. I'd like to find a first descent but I'm open for any kind of skiing or tour. I have Friday, Saturday, and Sunday off.

I've found it's generally this order...

 

mostly cloudy

partly sunny

partly cloudy

mostly sunnny sunny

 

Why they can't just use cloud cover %s like they do in aviation forecasts is beyond me. I think they get more room for wild ass guessing with this system. tongue.gif

Here is the national aviation weather site:

 

http://aviationweather.gov/

 

Below is a link to the SFO (west coast) area forecast. Judge for yourself, but they aren't all that readable to me smile.gif I remember for the brief time I took flight lessons with my dads just kind of staring at these blindly as my instructor looked over them:

Aviation forecasts are pretty helpful for climbing b/c they include temps and winds at various elevations, and where the cloud tops are. Translating them isn't so bad once you get the hang of it. This may help: METAR glossary

 

If you subscribe to a system called DUATs you can read aviation forecasts online in English. DUATs is free (or it was the last time I was into this stuff)

Who gives a rats ass on the weather, just get out there and do it. If your worried about weather just do a more mellow route. Can't trust the weather man, what you see is what you get.
