      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!

Yes, Kurt may be exhibiting that phenomenon that I've observed in the past: in October everybody wants to ski when they are in top climbing shape, there is no snow in the mountains, and the crags are dry; while in April they all want to rock climb when the crags are wet, their ski legs are in prime shape, and the ski hills are full of snow. We have here an excellent picture, though, and I'm thinking of pulling my skis out. Thanks, Kurt.

Gentlemen--The key is to optimize your activity based on current conditions, not necessarily the "season." Today was unquestionably skiing after two days of snow (about 14" of fresh on Baker at 7000'), followed by a perfectly calm sunny day; next week is looking like it's going to be alpine and rock climbing...

 

it was a fantastic day out on the planks though!

Nice pics! Mmmm powder :rocken:

 

In the Fall folks want to ski since they've probably taken time off and or miss it. The same is true about climbing in the spring.

we saw a little wind effect up on the crest of Heliotrope, but otherwise it was stable. we dug no pits. 2-5" of pow in most places. pole pen was up to 30cm.
