      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!

One weekend in Spokane, what to do?

Recommended Posts

So I came across a free travel voucher and have booked a flight to Spokane (I live in Norman, OK). I'll be arriving on Friday, March 24 around noon and my partner will be picking me up at the airport (he's from Spokane and a student at U of Idaho in Moscow). I depart Monday, March 27 at 7 AM.

 

Given this time frame and our location, what should we do?! We're considering driving up to Icefields Parkway in Canada, or maybe some long rock in the Cascades if its accessible.

 

Give me all your hairbrained ideas, we're up for anything alpine: ice, rock, you name it!

Take a short drive north to Nelson, BC. Then drive up as far as you can to gibson lake and then ski up the road to kokanee lake and to the base of the kokanee glacier, and stay in the nice slocan chief cabin. ski the glacier, and peak bag the area. Go to the ainsworth hotsprings when you get back.

That sounds like a lot, is that doable in a weekend? The only other problem being that we don't have skiis, just snowshoes, is it that far in that the absence of skiis would be an issue?

 

Another suggestion I've heard is Triple Couloir on DragonTail, what are conditions like? Also, we want to be on ice, not just kicking steps in snow.
