      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!

[TR] Cayoosh - East Bowls 5/12/2007

Trip: Cayoosh - East Bowls

 

Date: 5/12/2007

 

Trip Report:

After trying in vain to get someone to go ape on some remote couloirs, finally decided to hit up Cayoosh, which I had never before skied. The NE glacier is the Stanley Cup of ski runs, but since the newly high freezing levels were giving cornices and pocket slopes some really bad isothermic diarrhea, we decided to explore the more wide open east bowls, which were also found to kick some good ass. Also, it was very hot.

 

Summer is all upons :fahq:

I'd wanted to ski the chute directly off the summit, but it seemed to be the only thing that hadn't yet barfed itself.

Joooofre. We had thought of trying to ski Stonecrop face, but the whole thing looked to be vomiting down the lower funnel.

5 hrs return: Cayoosh rocks the national :tup:

That run is one of my favorites. Other side has possibly the best ski day off the Duffey IMO. See those heli ski stakes?

 

 

Can't believe those cornices have not pooped yet.

Coast Range [sic, Dru, sic!] Heli's tenure runs right over Cayoosh:

So supposedly they only ski the west and southwest slopes from that drop?

 

We were surprised to see SIX snowmobiles try to get into Marriot/Rohr on Saturday, but turned back "because they had a girl" according to one guy. When I politely asked the fellow if the drainage was not widely acknowledged as non-motorized, he said, "It's Crown land, isn't it?" :anger:
