      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!

It was fun to meet many new folks and thanks for sharing your 'wacky backy', (smoke) Erik, Beck and Parker.

 

Be nice to your puppy Ray!!

A back country ski pary is a great idea. I think spring would be best. LET'S DO IT!!!!! Any suggestions for a good winter or spring location? I think spring would be best because the weather is usualy better and there is more day light. THIS WILL BE FUN!!!!! [big Grin][smile][big Drink][rockband]

That'd be good, but a kegger at the Keith Flavelle Memorial hut would be even flabber. Its a bit of a drive from Bend, perhaps, but you can get to the trailhead from Seattle in 5 hrs. (at night) and the Adams trailhead is at least 4. The hut sleeps 20 or more, and is strategically located below dozens of incredible ski runs - both above and below treeline. The ski in is only 3 1/2 miles and 1200 feet elevation gain, so a small alpine buddy -- 7 3/4 gallons -- could easily make the trip.

Here's a photo of the area. The hut is just to the right of the moraine prominent in the lower center of the photograph. -

Be prepared to share the keg with the 40 random Canadian skiiers you will find there in anytime there is snow. One of the nearby "secret" huts would be a better choice but I cant tell you where they are or I will be killed by those determined to avoid the same type of crowding. Dont you guys have ANY huts of your own, other than Muir Hut?

Dammit timmay, why'd you tell everyone about her?

No, Wa ain't got huts worth any mention- I'll haul a keg anywhere on skis you guys want it to go and it won't have to be a pony, either- I think we could help entertain any local Canook hosts who might be in atendance.

As for smaller scale, pre- spring weekend bashes, a bivy upon Heather Ridge at Stevens Pass is very doable for an overnight PARTY destination.

Dru is right about the hut's popularity -- during the winter -- but after the middle of march the interest in backcountry skiing seems to wane just as the prime season is just getting under way. In May, we would just as likely have it to ourselves. At least one of the "secret" huts is even easier to get to than Cerise Creek (Flavelle Hut), but Cerise is the nicest one I've been to and the it has an incredible variety of terrain from completely hairball death runs to easy touring.

 

Aside from a party, some winter exploration would be in order. The Coast Range has very accessible backcountry skiing that is ten times as good as what we have in the Cascades. If interested, contact me after the first of the year.
