      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!

[TR] Pemberton Backcountry - Switzerland zone - 12/6/2012

Trip: Pemberton Backcountry - Switzerland zone -

 

Date: 12/6/2012

 

Trip Report:

What a difference a couple weeks make. The storm systems that have been hammering the BC coast have dropped an enormous amount of snow in the mountains with about 200cms at 1500m. A buddy was looking to test out his new sled so I took the day off to help him break it in. Rough job I must say.

Trailbreaking was henious with 70cms of unconsolidated fluff. The turns were outstanding but the short days limited us to one lap.

Stablity was great and we didn't see any indication of the noted surface hoar layers even at creek crossings.  This weekend is going to be good! Get out there and get after it!
