      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!

Hwy 542 washed out

Recommended Posts

Oh now this sucks.

 

I went online this morning and was excited to see the telemetry indicating that it snowed at Mt. Baker yesterday, if only 3-4". So when I went to check the snow report at the ski are website I was shocked to see this:

As of this morning, WA DOT Mountain Pass report hasn't been updated to report this:

Now it doesn't matter if it snows in Heather Meadows - we can't reach it anways. cry.gif

Check out the photos at Mt. Baker's website. 6+ foot tall piles of gravel/rock/dirt on the highway where the Nooksack washed over the river, and pavement missing and undercut where Shuksan Creek overflowed its culvert.

Yeh, this sucks. The only two days of sunshine, and the baker Highway is closed. I was really planning on doing some hiking out in that area. I'm currently stuck on the Bellingham side of the shuksan patiently waiting for dot to fix the bridge around marker 36?

Keep me updated will ya guys.

Being new to the area, I am not quite sure where they are. I hope they are good looking though. My Cascade Climbers book is on the other side of the nooksack......I'll google your post and see what I find.

Thanks
