      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!

Good multi-day ski trips?

Recommended Posts

I was wondering if anyone has any info on any multi-day ski trip off off hwy 20? I just spent three nights up near Silver Star Mountain and had a blast. I'm looking for a trip that includes glacier travel and skiing with an initial approach of around 6 miles or less.

Eldorado/Klawatti is nice. It sounds like you want a base camp and day climbs. That trip works well. If you have time you can throw in a tour over toward the Triad. Not a base camp trip, but the Shuksan/Icy/Ruth traverse looks very nice. I have not done that one though. The area around Lake Ann/Rainy Pass would be worthy of exploration over a few days. A trip to Black Peak and touring around Lake Ann could fill the time easily.

How much snow is on the ground at Colonial Creek right now? If there is 3' or more, it is an easy schwack to open slopes below the Colonial Glacier and much easier than heading up the Pyramid Lake approach. I don't know what it is like after the snow is gone. (This is a short trip for a multi-day tour, though.)

Around Heather Pass down pass Corteo and Wing Lake is very nice. I'd second that recommendation. Also you could head up the Baker Lake Road and hit Anderson Butte, Mount Watson and Bacon Peak as well.
