      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!

Freezing Levels!!!

Recommended Posts

It was 0 this morning. I hit a patch of "frost" while commuting on my bike and ended up sliding across the pavement.

 

Ouch.

Dunno if you all south of the line got hit by a week-long inversion like Vantown did, but a good bit of alpine water ice fell down/rotted out anyways, so the 3000m freezing level is only the icing on the gâteau.

CORN, suckaz! Learn to ski. Where's the rooster?

 

All right, I just looked at the forecast; I'll admit that corn doesn't seem likely for next week. Oh well.

 

They can't take this from us: :brew:

I was up on Red Mountain earlier this week, and there was not much corn to be found... great condition for cramponing though.

Corn has a remarkable diurnal variation. Morning's perfect crampon surface often leads to afternoon's velvet corn. What time of day was it? I'd be willing to bet there's fat corn to be skied there THIS VERY MOMENT.
