      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!

I was at Crystal last week

Recommended Posts

I was there all week with the family.

It was Thursday afternoon about 4:00 on our last ride up the Forest Queen Express.

 

We were looking out the left, sort of S.E. I think, and I say a skier WAY out of bounds skiing down the summit ridge of the next peak over.

 

The person had to have either skinned or climbed to the summit before their decent.

 

It was at that moment I knew I must become a better skier.

 

So my question is who was it? I am sure it had to be someone on this sight

 

Oh, and I want to see our TR

 

thanks

That was probably Silver King. You might not see a trip report for skiing the King. It is easily accessible by hiking into the "South Backcountry" at Crystal and is regularly skied. There are a nuber of runs down all aspects and it is a quinessential experience for the advanced skier in Western Washington. Do a little search, check it out, and keep making turns.

Right now as you go up into Silver Basin the eastern (left hand) side of the basin is out of the ski area. There are some good runs on that side. No huge vertical drop, but they are fun.

 

You can hike up 3-Way peak from the low point on the Silver Basin saddle. That's a fun run.
