      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!

[TR] Enchantments, Dragontail and ski porn - 5/23/2009

Recommended Posts

Trip: Enchantments, Dragontail and ski porn - Date: 5/23/2009Trip Report:What a awesome weekend to play in the mountains! Lots of folks up in the Enchantments this weekend. I was there 2 years ago on Memorial day and only a handful of folks in the area. Not this weekend! The place was crawling with folks.Snow is perfect in the morning but by afternoon the postholing will happen without snowshoes or skis. I only used my snow shoes on the lake. Steps are kicked in up Aasgard and was an easy ascent. Great glissade path set in the bottom half of Aasgard. It goes all the way to the lake. Weeeeeee! Colchuck Lake may still be frozen enough to ski the edge for another week(maybe?) but is melting fast! I spent a day hiking scrambling around filming my partners skiing. It was ski heaven up there all weekend I suck at filming but I had a blast doing it! Here is the result... [video:vimeo]

Hey! Thanks for the link to your pics! haha! Yes great meeting you, so to speak. You have that name for a reason ya know! You are fast!Plus, you are a kick ass skier. I watched you two all day Sunday along while keeping tabs on all the skiers out there. Your style and experience makes easy on the eyes to watch and film. Almost pretty...yup I have a video of you. :grin: You are ripping down dragontail glacier. Your partner is in the last half. Unfortunately he took too long to drop in and my card ran out! So i hope you don't mind but figure you would want to see it. I put it to music as all the sound was wind, my partners yacking in the background and my breathing! Yuck! [video:vimeo]

Hey tazz,

Thanks for the video! I can't blame you for taking pictures with light like that...I wish I had taken more. Hopefully we'll bump into each other again out there.
