      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!

Mt Rainier - Skier in crevasse, rescue underway

Recommended Posts

....The skier was with a group at the 13,180-foot level in the Upper Nisqually Glacier when the person skied into a crevasse and fell about 100-150 feet down, said Patty Wold with Mt. Rainier National Park.

Why would they not have had any rescue gear with them? Relying on an AAI group to perform the rescue? Hopefully there is more to the story so I will hold off any critiquing until more of the story is known. Hopefully, the skier is ok.

First death of the season... Sad sad news. Heavy snow conditions can really mask the danger of those lurking crevasses. Rest in peace, Tucker.

regardless, like every year, some near misses, some lucky folk, and some poor souls that were unlucky.

 

we all take risk on some way. have a good life, there is no sense cowering in fear of the things that could take you.

Thanks for posting that link, certainly a much stranger story than first reported.
