      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!

Chugach avalanche

Recommended Posts

Damn, sorry to be the bearer of sad news.

From my pal in Eagle River:"Today I drove by an avalanche recovery operation on Eagle River Road. The mountain is less than five miles away from my house. The simple fact is there was a near miss two days ago across the valley on Harp Mountain where one man was buried for thirty minutes. His partner dug an air hole after using a beacon and probe to find him. Today it was a different story. I plan on climbing the same Mountain soon using a safe route. The day was spectacular and Eagle River Valley is in glory that is nothing short of awesome. People are attracted by the beauty and the clean perfectly clear crisp air and magically blue skies.A sad day for the community. Stay safe and Remember the increased snowfall down there!"
