      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!

Trip: Broken Top - Various - circumnav, 9 o'clock Couloir

 

Date: 3/19/2010

 

Trip Report:

Billy and I had a smashing time covering some terrain on Broken Top. While the snowpack is lower than normal, there's still plenty out there high up.

 

Can you tell where the wilderness boundary is?

We first headed up the east ridge to ski a cool ramp on the east side.

We skied north to the ridge between Broken Hand and BT, and skied a great chute down and over to the north side.

Great skiing to be had here on the north side.

Looking down into 9 o'clock. The snow conditions were pretty miserable in here, a little refrozen and chunky.

The view across. The snow is much better in the sun!
