      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!

August and September skiing?

Recommended Posts

Looking for ideas and suggestions on where to get some turns in over the next two months.

 

Had a great ski on snow dome yesterday, and have skied many times in July, but never as late as aug/sept.

I've skied the SW Chutes on Adams, and the Fryingpan on Rainer in August and found them to be pretty good. For September ski trips I have had more "mixed" results but I have had fresh snow on the Muir Snowfield once or twice.

The north side of McLoughlin and the east side of Diamond both have lots of snow left. August is probably a possibility on either or both this year.

I've had fun skiing on Rainier in August. This year it should be good, or at least reasonably good.

 

September is a tough month for skiing. Generally you've really got to want to ski in September. Of course if you're into the turns all year thing then it's a must do.

Hadley Peak and the Coleman Pinnacle vicinity (both north of Mt.Baker) hold relatively smooth snow through the entire summer when there's been a good winter snowpack.

Spray Park/Flett glaciers/Russell glacier (north side of Rainier, Mowich Lake TH) also are good places to look for late summer skiing.
