      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] Diamond Peak - Pioneer Gulch 5/15/2009

Recommended Posts

Trip: Diamond Peak - Pioneer Gulch


Date: 5/15/2009


Trip Report:

Skied Diamond Peak Friday, finding some of the sweetest conditions I've ever encountered there. Was able to ski right off the summit, shortly after 1 PM with lovely, uniform surface conditions from the get-go.


Gear Notes:

skins and crampons. at about 9:45 near timberline the skins started to slip on the steepening, still-firm surface. crampons served well the rest of the way (though one could have made do without them)


Approach Notes:

The Pioneer Gulch road is blocked by snow only a quarter mile short of the trailhead.

Would this be a good conditioning hike(not monotonous) without the benefit of skis? Looking to stretch my legs without the current unsafe conditions of my local volcanoes.
