      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!

very nice! way to make the most out of a soggy day

We made the most of the soggy day by drinking and sleeping late.

 

Bonus question - does anyone know the name of the three obvious chutes in the pic? We skied the middle one (slanting from left at top to right) which I guess would be called the Zipper. The climber's right (widest) is almost always in and is a good ski too. The left one is probably rarely a good ski.

 

The large apron below the two right chutes is in awesome shape now where it is usually littered with debris and sucky. A little heat and rain sure can massage the avy junk.
