      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!

Where have all the Alaskan Photographers gone?

Recommended Posts

Hello! Im writing this as a trip report and a question so its allowed to be here :-P right confused.gif

 

We have a photo contest going on right now which i have posted in the Personal Websites area and were giving away a brand new $200 climbing rope on the 21st of April and we hardly have any pictures submitted at all. Tis kind of a bummer being that it is free to submit and you can submit 2 and all that have to do is be of the Alaskan Outdoors. So if anyone can tell me how i can get more submissions and interest in the contest let me know!!

 

Ok now to my trip report wink.gif

 

Skipped class today to hit the hills because it was such a beautiful day. It was a good idea but we still didnt make it to the peak! So again just another set of skinning pictures :roll: One day im gonna get some good use out of this thing in board mode!! smile.gif There was a good snow the last few days which really slowed our progress and unfortunatly we had to turn back because of a time crunch. Doh.

 

Danes happy to be out (he was driving around town with the googles on as sunglesses. No telling where we were going heh.

The peak on the left was the objective.

Breaking through the think stuff. There was a layer of crust underneath the soft stuff that would give away every now and then and make it twice as hard to break trail smile.gif

Another one close to the last shot. The mountain on the right has killed before. A group of college students had an accident on them and a few died at the same time killing the outdoor program at the college frown.gif

Objective #2 . But since we never made it to #1 than it really didnt matter!

Some of the fun to navigate. On the way down we jumped off this just a little to the left of what you can see in the picture with splitmode and no skins. We both ate it heh.

And that was about it. Unfortuantly nothing to crazy. In board mode the snow was so sticky we couldnt get any kind of speed going with the weak slope and spent another day mostly in skin mode :roll: smile.gif

How do I submit a photo for the contest? I have some cool shots from the Wrangell/St. Elias range that I could enter. Is there a limit to the number you can submit?
