      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!

Weather, avalanche reports?

Recommended Posts

Im wondering what is a rock solid site to look up weather and avalanche condition. I climb mostly in Oregon and southern Washington. Thanks

Any forecast is just that...an educated estimate, but I use NOAA Weather for weather forecasts, and have a fair amount of faith in their accuracy. I don't think it covers all of Oregon, but Norhwest Weather and Avalanche Center has good info on avalanche conditions and snowpack analysis...but again it is general info and no substitute for good on-site judgement. I'm sure there are other sources out there (especially for Oregon), but hope this helps. Cheers!

NWAC is closed for the season. They stop posting regular avalanche risk assessments in April. If there is a major event or change in conditions you might get a bulletin, but that's a long shot.

 

NOAA is a great source of information right now.

Thanks for the info guys

 

Note: I said rock solid site.

 

Meaning a website that up dates every day.

 

I've been using the above sites just wanted to see if there were any other popular sites out there. Thanks again.
