      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!

Rudy... You just need to come down and stay at my place, you can ski right out my front door and it will be better quality than Seattle snow. I still got 3 feet in front of my building and they are predicting 3 more feet by the end of next week.

Tell me about it, there's so much snow I've done more backcountry days than inbounds. BC = 8 , Resort = 2. Add in three snowshoeing trips into the mix too.

I'm back from Lookout Pass, Big sky, Moonlight Basin, Bridger. The latter 3 areas had serious lack of snow. In fact, when the powder I was skiing from the top of Lone Peak turned into a couple inch veneer of snow over a steep rock field I cracked a rib in the ensuing wreck.

 

Now up to 35 days. Heading to Big Mountain next week.

I set a goal of climbing 20 days of WI this season and climbing WI in at least OR, WA, MT, WY, and CAN.

 

To date I have climbed 40 pitches of WI over 13 days in 5 different states (OR, WA, MT 3 times, UT, and CO). I need to kick it into high gear if I am going to make 20! :snugtop: My # of pitches could/should be higher but one of those trips to MT I puked more times than the # of pitches I climbed :(:mistat: Damn you food poisoning!

 

I'm willing to bet Craig and Bryan have the most days this year of ice... oh to be a student again :laf:

 

Cheers to anybody getting out consistently to do something... ski, climb, whatever... :brew:

It's Henson (like the muppet guy). Good afternoon corn at Crystal on Saturday put me at 36.

 

 

My son and I are leaving for Big Mountain tomorrow morning via Kellogg and Silver Mt.

78 daze pulling plastic = 3 pitches on WI.

 

I've got 12 days in skiing so far. My personal best was last year at 26. As the kids get older and out of the house, it gets easier.

 

When Ujahn was in shape last year, I noted that there was several days of AM skiing then rockclimbing which ROCKED! This year, he's so busy running his business that in a few hours we're both pwned and only want to look at rocks and have a cush Lunch/dinner at Skamania Lodge afterwards. We're such pussies.

 

Powderhound- good on ya for getting it while you are young. You too John, you guys seem to sandwich it in between the other important stuff and I have a lot of respect for you both (and some of you others doing it too) for getting on it.

 

Keith = Go get it buddy, most of us will be living vicariously through you and E this year fom our cubicals:-)

 

Take care all

 

Bill

Cannot beleive u would even chime in u did not have at least 30 days in this year. Can not call yourself a skier unless u do. Less than 30 and your a WEAKend warrior. WEAK being the key word.

One of my ski partners has skied every day for 84 days this season before calling it quits. He has had 3 days this month and feels great for doing it. I try and spend less than 5 days a week up there but it’s hard.

Friday at Big Mt was day 39 for me and yesterday was day 40. As you can see, the conditions were harsh on Friday! Blue sky and powder. A pic from the Glacier Chaser chair on Friday, 2_16_07 765497-1-7e9a1d04c09c85df038bb9b0a87f9c8210de113b.jpg
