      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!

HOOD SNOW CAT SEATS AVAILABLE THIS SAT MAY 12TH

Recommended Posts

Calling all Mount Hood climbers,

 

A quick note for those that don't wish to hike up a ski run, we have seats available on the snow cat this Saturday May 12th at 2AM.

At this time we have 4 seats available. If you are interested I can be contacted at paul@cascadeclimbs.com.

The entire cat fee this year is a crazy $500.00 bucks!! so the seats are 35 bucks ea. The cat holds 12 plus gear but these 4 will still leave seats available for breathing room, our team is down to 5 :shock:

 

Cheers,

Pwelco

it takes about 4-5 hours to cover the same distance, running on manpower. Imagine that youre making 100+ $ per hour to hike on a beautiful mountain... $500 tab later at the bar at t line!!

I agree it's beautiful but every time I climb the south side, I'm annoyed by the snow plows engine and it's back up beeping noise. I've climbed parking lot to summit several times and would much rather pay the 35 bucks. But I'm just your weakend worrier. Oh I'm kinda lazy too.

4-5 hours? Maybe you need to add some wheels to your walker.

I've got three open seats in my helicopter. We're planning on going straight to the summit. And we're leaving from Seattle- actually my backyard so I can roll out of bed right into the helicopter. If anyone wants to join, tickets are $350 a piece. Really a good deal if you factor in gas for the drive, avoided tips for your sherpa and the $35 you won't have to spend on those noisy cats.

Really dude? As far as I can tell you are an old hang glider pilot that can't spell. When you used to go to Smith in the '80s did you walk there from PDX? If not, you must be a lazy ass. Just sayin.

I love when people compare the south side of hood to everest. Not everybody is a fare means climber. Some just like to get out and enjoy a mild climb. More power to you if your a badass. But it's the south side of hood not some super hard route.

""More power to you if your a badass. But it's the south side of hood not some super hard route. ""

 

this statement is self contradictory.

 

 

the top of the lift is only about an hour. It's 4 to 5 hours to the summit.

 

If you need to ride a snow cat you aren't a climber

That's my point not every one is trying to be " a climber ". Some of us don't need to tell people were climbers to feel good inside. We get out because we enjoy it, not to live up to someone else's standards. But it's cool if putting down the weak makes you feel better about your own climbing ability.

Takeing a ride up the SS HOOD is ok , if our not in shape. But puting other climbers at risk, because your legs are spend on the way down from the summit. Thats not cool. Climb safe and enjoy it how ever you want.

The relevant date has passed, but what's with the self-righteous BS? So what if these guys want to take the cat? Let's extend the "You're not a real climber if ..." logic:

You're not a real climber if you don't start hiking or skiing from Government Camp.

 

I would like a Cat Stevens hoody.

 

Here's my swipe at self-righteousness: Real climbers don't care what these guys do because there's no real climbing on Mt Hood.

 

I hope the OP and crew had fun.
