      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!

Posthole/snowshoe up, alpine down for me, and board down for my buddy Dice. Other takers welcome to come along... probly leave Seattle "early-ish" and be back "late-ish."

Don't mean to dampen for upcoming trip but I was on muir thursday and there was very little new snow over hard ice on the upper half of the route. the lower half had lots of rocks poking through. Probably the worst ride down from muir ever for me. Was still a good day with great views and even pretty warm but I would have had as much fun simply walking up and down. If things don't change, you might want to forget the skiis and go for a nice walk.

Gene, thanks for the beta -- mucho appreciated.

 

Norman, maybe hiking / climbing something closer would be more better... will keep an eye on the weather...

 

SnowByrd, haven't you broken enough of yourself lately? smile.gif No, if you wanna go out and play you're invited...

 

Cheers-

Rainier weather is predicted to be surprisingly warm, not much different from Seattle, at least at Paradise: 40 degrees or so. The rangers yesterday said that conditions were somewhat spring-like. I was wondering about Little T, but White River is closed and the lower Cowlitz way too broken up to make this practical.

I'm up for something tomorrow, would be willing to travel to Rainier, but also something closer.
