      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!

Mt Baker - Easton Glacier - Ski/Snowboard

Recommended Posts

Looks like the road to Schreibers Meadow is almost clear; website reports it clear 1.9 miles from the trailhead. I'd like to take a couple of friends skiing and boarding on the Easton glacier route this coming weekend if the weather holds. My question is: how high up on the glacier route can you safely go with out being roped-up and worrying about crevasses? We aren't lookig to climb just get in some turns without carrying all the climbing gear. I climbed this route years ago when it was snow-covered right out of the parking lot and I don't really recall where the snowfield ends and the glacier starts.

Bubba, I'm planning on climbing via Easton this weekend myself. I hope the road fully melts out.

 

As I recall, the top of the Railway grade/terra firma ends at about 6,400'. There is a nice, non-glacial bowl immediately along you left as you plod up the grade (at about 5,000').

 

Have fun and make sure you break a good trail.
