      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] Mt. Hood - Powder Skiing - Zig Zag 12/8/2012

Recommended Posts

Trip: Mt. Hood - Powder Skiing - Zig Zag


Date: 12/8/2012


Trip Report:

My friend describes the details in this blog: Early Season Skiing


Overall, despite low visibility, we had some amazing runs. The lesson learned for me: you don't have to ascend thousands of feet to enjoy fresh snow. The traverse into the snow line made all the difference. We used altimeter for navigation due to low visibility conditions, and it was sort of fun driving blind.




Gear Notes:

Backcountry ski set-up.


Approach Notes:

General traverse with some altitude gain. In general, we played at the 6k level to access the finer snow.
