      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!

Who has been to Cloud Cap recently?

Recommended Posts

Like within the past week. Can you drive all the way to Cloud Cap w/ 4 wheel drive but sans snowtires (mine aren't installed yet)? What's the snow coverage on lwr Cooper Spur (below tie-in-rock) like? Could you ski from there to the TH? Any photos?


I'm not going to ask what conditions are like on Snowdome as I already know conditions are always perfect there. However how far could one ski down the Langille Crags gully? How about down the Eliot creek gully? And most importantly: if I ski into a thinly-bridged crevasse on Snowdome will my cell phone still work to call for a rescue?


I'm not sure I'm going to get out this weekend, just curious.

on monday i drove all the way to the trailhead without 4wd - most of the road was bare and easily passable


cooper spur was primarily neve/late season snowpack with sporadic shallow powder drifts


however, it was snowing like a banshee above 7,000ft - albeit horizontally


sorry, no photos
