      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!

The avalanche happened just below the start of the Slot Couloir on the Phantom side. The avalanche was a slab (20" I think) of new snow on top of this weekends snow surface. I believe three people out of a group of five were in it.

 

You're right on names. A rescue group put two of the injured on toboggans and brought them out. One broken femur. and a messed up knee. Everybody made it out.

 

There's more discussion here:
