      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 hood April 20th

Recommended Posts

We (teem of three) are planning on a mount hood climb April 20th. Right now the weather looks less than desirable, and I am just wondering what the current conditions are. I am new to the Cascades (live in Colorado). If anyone has a website that would be of use...please advise

Indeed... weather is not looking friendly for climbing next weekend. But conditions can change quite a bit from forecast in a week, 'roun hur.


I would plan to not climb, and I would plan to not climb if conditions are questionable- that's how we get people dying up there every year.


www.nwac.us for avy conditions

and I'm partial to www.mountain-forecast.com for weather.


Otherwise, if weather is suppose to be good, you can find the mountain in any sort of condition- bottomless powder to solid crust, or anything in between... just depends on what's been going on the previous week.


Good luck... be safe!

been round long enough to know when to call it quits, so I agree...may be chillin' in Oregon is the plan. How far is Smith Rocks? Probably questionable weather there too...
