      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!

100 days

Recommended Posts

Considering that there are less than 60 left in the year it sounds like none of you will achieve your goals.

Resort once, backcountry once. Until we get another storm here in Colorado, it's bring yer ice skates up to the mountains time. We're having record highs. Survival skied in the backcountry yesterday on a nice icy crust with rocks poking out. Buh-bye week-old dump. At least we'll have a good base for the next round of storms.

I like the way you think! I've already got three days in so far this winter and I think its making me snow-crazy. That and the thought of spending the entire month of January in Oklahoma for work.

 

Kill me now.

100 days is easy when you're a lifty pitty.gif

Better challenges for working folks:

-10k in a day

-Ultimate Sea to Sky Challenge: Garibaldi Neve in a day on Saturday, Spearhead Traverse in a day on Sunday. Work Monday

We are now 7% there. 100 days in a season. We are counting it as "in season" as long as we can ride, so there might be some serious bootpacking in June to get our last few days in.

Last year I managed to get 63 days on skis (and no, I am not some rich lift junkie. I just try not to go to work very often). We will be getting another 4 days this weekend. fruit.gif

Last year I skied 35 days. The Zaritsky filkm "Ski Bums" and Warren Miller’s taunt that “If you don’t do it this year, you’ll be one year older when you do” got me thinking.

 

So this year I decidied to take a year off of work and be a ski bum (a "ski"battical, if you will), before I get too old and my knee totally deteriorates. I hope to get 100 days... I will be in Utah twice, Montana for over 3 weeks, and I have a crystal pass so I think I can do it.

 

Day 4 of this year’s season had me today at Crystal in powder over my thighs!

A couple of my buddies are trying to get turns in 100 days this year/season. So far they've got 5, I've got 3.

How about you guys?

Got 4 more in this weekend for a total of 7.

5 on Mt Hood, but I am adding 3 more Sat-Sun-Mon up in Seattle (I just got up here).

 

Remember it's not the quantity, it's the quality :) This is my rationalization. That or I am just plain jealous.
