      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!

some WA pass freshies

Recommended Posts

Skied up there yesterday, a lot of powder in the trees to the W of Liberty Bell. However, as the day warmed, anything in more open terrain turned heav-y. Filtered sunshine and occasional flakes--beautiful day up there! Explored the lower bounds of the payoff ratio as it concerns quality turns/miles, but still had a great day.


Despite the warming, the good news is there's a lot of new snow (as evidenced by some slides going off here and there near the hairpin), so when they open the road again (or before), get some!

awesome. I was up there last saturday 3/26 and it snowed over a foot over the course of the day (that's the day they re-closed the pass). I didn't get to ski much, as I was instructing a bunch of greenhorns, but I did get one run in- the top 100' of which was a solid 3' of dry, fluffy, untrammeled, absolutely perfect powder. It was without question, the best skiing of my life. Sure, there was no base to speak of, but with 3' of the good stuff, who cares?!


Now that there is a base, I think it's definitely time to get after it again.
