      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!

Did anyone head up to Hood for turns this past weekend (other than the poor Meadows Season pass owners)?

Yeah Saturday started out good for a few hours but deteriorated by around noon. I busted home in anticipation of some traffic issues, and because i was rimed up to the point a lift op said "dude, you look like an icicle".

Sounds like I picked a good weekend to get stuff done around the house.

 

That Meadows forcast reminds me of the typical east coast ski report - "Loose and Frozen Granular" - translating to "Coarsely Chopped and Solid Ice".

"visible humidity" (dug from the archives of the Mt. Bachelor reports)

 

"smells like pineapples" (another Meadows gem)

no doubt. I'm usually sick of Meadows after my second trip in a season. Every year I'm glad I didn't buy into one of those 10-ticket things that someone is always emailing me about in October.

 

Bachelor was actually better on Sunday. Saturday was just wet wet wet... one of those rivulets-of-water-running-down-your-back days. Didn't get the rime ice treatment like iain, probably because it's +/- 1000 feet higher than Meadows...?

I'm really only going for next weekend. Other than that, I'll go ski some slushiez 'till they're gone too. Maybe it'll be time for the Wy'east soon. Does the Gapermobile have pontoon attachments?

Hmm I'm not sure about the pontoon attachments. But I know that with the quality of my tires we can drive STRAIGHT UP the WyEast face! wink.gif
