      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!

Trip: Coquihalla Highway Dec 16 2012 -

 

Date: 12/16/2012

 

Trip Report:

Made my first trek to the Coquihalla this weekend. Snow hadn't stacked up quite as early as it has in previous years. The last few storms have quickly built a 200cm base.

 

Lots of people out and about. Stability was good but southern facing slopes were sporting a pretty good sun crust. I had looked at skiing the North Bowl between Yak and Thar a few times last year but never quite got around to it.

I love the adventure and route finding of new ski routes especially when they are holding some great snow!

 

This line is awesome though not one you would want to ski if you are even questioning stablity. Lots of narrow chokes and chutes.

Pics were hard to come by with the really flat light but it was worth the 3.5 km slog out.
