      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!

Freshies

Recommended Posts

Ok, I gots'ta know what this means. What's a 'freshie'? I sort of think to me it is a male climber under 25, but I suspect a male climber under 25 is going to school me on this...

Dearest Allison...let a male climber over 25 school you on this subject as I, myself, have recently been both mystified and informed about the meaning of this utterly silly bit of insider jargon. Apparently in backcountry ski-slang it means something to the effect of "freshly fallen snow". When I first heard the term, it was in the context of "Hey everybody! The freshies are here! New pow-pow ["powder-snow"]!" [hell no] My initial impression was that a group of five-years olds with precocious computer skills had posted on the site. I guess if you're around that kind of lingo on a regular basis, you don't even notice how goofy it sounds to an outsider. Anyway, I hope this helps. tongue.gif" border="0 Others out there might be able to provide more subtle nuances of meaning. [big Drink]

As long as we are discussing new ski/snowboarding "jargon," Pow-pow and freshie are indeed synonomous, Ski-po are the asshole ski patrol sticking us for building jumps, unipoling is what one does when one breaks wipes out and breaks a pole against their hip, and a took (rhymes with duke) is a turok, or a knitted hat with a ball but not a tassle.

You mean "tuque". Sorry dood. Any brimless ear-length headcovering incl. watchcap, but not including balaclava.

Beck, if you can't spell believe.... I think "toke" is the word you are looking for.
