      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!

April 30-May 2 :: Washington Pass Ski- In

Recommended Posts

OK, 99% certain of the May 1 weekend... Friday to Sunday as usual.

 

It's going to be soon... start planning!

 

We need a rough head count, so post up here if you think you will show.

 

:brew: :freshiez:

 

And like usual, if you want to climb or snowboard or hike or bike or just smell the flowers, you will still be welcome. It's primarily a ski event, but everyone's welcome!

That Willow creek route was awesome, we should so make that happen again if the conditions are good.

I hope to attend as well, though as has been my habit the last couple of years, I may be cragging.

SPRING SKI FEST APRIL 30 to MAY 2nd!

 

I'm pretty sure this is the 9th annual Washington Pass Ski fest and the camping location can't be beat! It's always a great party and bar-b-que. I do need to get a rough idea of how many people plan to attend this year. Drop ins are always welcome however. Please post asap if you or someone you know is planning on coming this weekend! If you need directions, you will need to ask and provide your email or contact info so I can get back to you. We hope you can talk a few friends into joining us. Plenty of camping spots and a nice cabin with big deck and party area.

I've talked up Ski-In with folks that are part of Cascade Backcountry Ski Patrol.

 

I think there will be 5 other folks coming to the event.

If anyone is showing up on Friday around 11am and wants to climb Prime Rib send me a pm and we can meet up. I have never climbed it, but it looks fun.

It is super fun. Can be windy up high and bring some long runners for the traverse pitches. and approach shoes for the scramble between P8-9 and the descent. 13-ish raps with a 60M will get you down just fine.

 

have fun!

92% sure I will be there with one partner. I was there last year (for about two beers until headed to my cabin with my girl). Can someone email me the directions (again) at hutchinson.dj@gmail.com?

 

I skied above Easy Pass and the Birthday Tour last weekend (with the horrendously stupid side ski of the SW Couloir on SEWS - now that sucked as a ski). Is it just me, or is there tons of avy debris mucking up most good lines in some way this year? The snow conditions were awesome but lower coverage is so-so and debris was dominant, but the coverage near WA Pass is good. Second observation = the alpine ice up there died before the hwy opened this year. Looks like no ice routes will be dispatched.

 

Prime Rib is fun but very rambly and kicked back - the approach shoe suggestion is good beta.

Dave Parker and I are heading over to Mazama after noon today.

 

If you need directions send me a PM, and I'll try to respond.

 

If you have firewood bring a few pieces.

Do folks usually have some energy left to ski Sunday, or are you all partied out? I'll come over Sat night with firewood if anyone wants to ski Sunday.

I wish I could make this. With the new snow this week, hopefully y'all will find some good conditions up there. Looking forward to the TRs. :):brew:
