      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!

Were headed up for some skiing but i'm thinking of taking a detour for a day. Is the ice still in back there? I can't remember if the upper part sees sun yet and if that make's it considerably more dangerous due to rockfall? Any thoughts? Will the park still let you get snowmobiles back there this time of year? Road to Nowhere? Anybody been back ther lately? What's in, big, and Fat?

Ice on / near the Eklutna glacier is usually good till early-mid April. If it's sunny rockfall will be a major hazard - as will ice fall and avalanches and recently awakened bears etc. etc..


As for snowmachines -- I don't know if you can still drive back there in early April. There is a ton of snow this year so they might keep it open longer than usual. Check the DNR Chugach State Park site for info on motorized usage.
