      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!

[TR] Kwohl Butte - Sleddy Goodness 1/4/2009

Trip: Kwohl Butte - Sleddy Goodness


Date: 1/4/2009


Trip Report:

In an effort to once again regain the TR throne, here is Y.A.K.B.T.R. (Yet Another Kwohl Butte Trip Report).




This new years I resolve to shred the gnar... and yesterday, I had the distinct pleasure of spending my first day in the backcountry of the 08-09 season with some good friends. It also allowed my little sled to get some much needed throttle-luv (at the very capable hands err thumb of mlag!).


The temps were below zero as I followed the SCHRALPmobile up to Edison Snow Park. The rest of the shredheads were awaiting our arrival as I realized that a) I had no snopark pass and b) my sled tabs were expired. Breakin da law! IM SUCH A REBEL!


In fine 2-stroke-served backcountry turns, we had some sled issues on the way in, but were able to get the whole crew out to Kwohl without any major issues. A quick skin up the north side yielded some tasty turns on wind buff on the face with light and fluffy freshiez down low on the face. mmmmmm, freshiez.


The last lap of the day down the north side provided the best turns. I think we all agreed that we should have been lapping that aspect all day. But as schralp always puts it: "THE SUMMIT URGE IS JUST TOO STRONG".


Flat light didn't allow for any killer shots, but here are some shots from the day:

mlag'z a sled goddess!
