      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!

Best Snow?

Recommended Posts

Hey everyone,

I am looking to do an epic backcountry ski trip this winter, and i am wondering where the BEST snow in the US will be. I will be heading out the 2nd and 3rd week in december. I had heard some things about the Lost River Range, Sawtooths, and possibly some stuff up near Nelson BC. Any info would be greatly appreciated.

Nelson is good. I've also had some good trips to Rogers Pass; there are some great trips off the highway there.

The crest of the Bitterroot was fun a couple decades ago.

We took 12 days. Had a couple free ski days (no pack).

Go in Como lakes.

Come out over Lolo Pk and down the Mormon ridge road.

There may be some thin parts but the north exposures almost always have powder.

And you WILL be alone.

December 20th, 3pm, Gore Range, Colorado

 

Don't know about the 20th, but I'll be able to tell you how it's like on the 21st. Any preferences? I was thinking Fletcher.
