      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

My season didn't start until February 10th, but since then I have gotten 22 days on the planks, and a dozen days on the mountain bike. Oh, and a quarter-day of bouldering.

Only at Silver one day and it was pretty foggy. Chair 4 was was closed which was disappointing, though because of visability it was hard to tell what we were missing.

 

Twenty minute ride up to the mountain on the gondola instead of driving was very convenient.

 

Since only chair 2 was open on the upper mountain we were forced to ride the lift beside the terrain park. My note to Silver is below...

 

At the Silver Mountain web site comments are invited so I submitted the following:

>>> "Keith A. Henson" 2/22/2007

7:29:42 PM >>>

My son and I skied at Silver on Valentine's Day and enjoyed the skiing very much. There were few people on the mountain that day, the snow was pretty good, and there was a bit of fresh powder.

 

One thing though that detracted from our enjoyment was the loud and unavoidable music blaring from the terrain park.

 

Believe me, nobody, even someone who might enjoy tunes while riding/boarding, enjoys hearing "I want candy" and "Jeremiah was a bullfrog (Joy to the world)".

 

Loud, crumby pop music seriously marred the beauty of being in the mountains and is inconsistent with the alpine experience. People who want tunes have MP3 players. "I want candy" is definitely not hip--even by virtue of its complete unhippness.

 

Turn it off and groove to the sounds of silence.

 

thanks

Since I don't have permission to post the email reply, I will supply the gist of it was: thanks for the feedback, terrain park riders want tunes, and maybe they will pick other selections.

Good tree skiing. Here's a short clip of my son at Silver in the trees

I'll go back, particularly as you can stay cheap in Kellogg at the marginal but adequate Trail Motel.

 

Have fun. Also, Lookout Pass is very close and is recommended on Thursdays as it is closed on Tue/Wed. However, I would not go there unless there is powder as the chair lifts are very slow. But really nice tree skiing at Lookout.

I am jealous!

The first time I went to Solitude it had five chairs and cost seven bucks. One of the best days of skiing in my life.

 

Great report, great year!

Hey all - it's time for some chestbeating... most of you have probably finished your seasons, so let's hear how you did.

 

I'm at 119, but I'm not done yet. 3 or 4 more days in the plans. My previous big season was 90 or so... this is a big jump from that.

The season never ends, there's just a longer drive followed by hiking on dirt!

I am at 52, maybe I'll get to 65 before Oct....

119? Damn, that is impressive.

That was my question. When do you reset the counter?

I don't have an exact tally, but five days resort and somewhere around 20 days backcountry. Given the high temps and what I saw early last week in the Front Range with the snow conditions, I've put my AT boots into storage.

Only 96 so far! ARGH!

Wanna hit 110 before I hang up the boards.

Though this is the least # of daze I've had in 10 seasons.

My record is 175 daze and not as mtn employee or anything, that was SERIOUS! :P

175! :o :o that is some serious commitment.

 

Me and snogurl just came back from a little ski attempt... sadly the approach had melted out, and we got only 10 turns or so...

175 days is quite impressive for a non employee.

I talked to a ski guide who said he got 250 days one year. He was working both northern and southern hemispheres.

My record is 71 days on skis. I did manage to get 26 days on ice this year.

I met that guy when I was working at Copper Mountain, CO! He's super cool, some days he would ride the magic carpet up the tubing hill just to make his requisite turns.
