      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!

first ski descent [TR] Dragontail - TC ski descent 4/4/2006

Recommended Posts

At least when Jason hurt himself (wasn't his knee, it was sticking the tip of his ski up his nose) I was able to ski something. So that doesn't really count. tongue.gif

Got a big smile from Dave S. after telling him you ski'd this Ross. Being that he's an avid AT skier the only question he had was how you passed the runnels. Cheers on a bitchin' descent. thumbs_up.gifthumbs_up.gif

Josh K says it aint that bad....

 

In the right conditions! I've climbed it twice. The first time would have been a breeze (in a very very relative sense) compared to the second time. The second time you definitely would never have caught me in there with skis, and it would have been scary as hell, at least to me.

Josh, you're right, the skiing itself is not that difficult. It is only moderately steep, but it is severely exposed for most of the 2,200 and some odd vertical feet. Kinda like free soloing 5.9 or something....feels nice and easy...just don't blow it. wink.gif

Excellent trip report and congrats on a great ski descent. Continued to be impressed at some of the lines being done. One aspect that truely amazes me, is that many trips are done in a single push. For me, even if the skiing in your opinion is "not that hard", my legs would be tired which would make the exposure that much more intense. Cheers.

Nice ski!

The mental fatigue musta been off the charts. Not to many ski lines require that concentration level for that duration of time.
