      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] Fairy Meadow Hut Pow Fest - 3/16/2013

Recommended Posts

Trip: Fairy Meadow Hut Pow Fest -

 

Date: 3/16/2013

 

Trip Report:

The Northern Selkirks got hammered with blower powder during March and I was lucky enough to be tucked away at the Fairy Meadow Hut to enjoy a few days of incredible turns. The terrain, the accommodation and the company all made for a memorable trip.

After two days of skiing bottomless powder in the old-growth we enjoyed a bluebird day and toured up to Friendship Col and then booted to the top of Sentinel Peak.

Then it was back into the trees during another bountiful storm cycle.

And then we got one more bluebird day, which we used to tour up to Unicol.

And then the kids built a kicker.

All in all, a fantastic trip and a worthy destination.

This is stoke for my trip at the end of April and the first few days of May. Bringing glacier gear, hope to bag some peaks along with turns.

Fairy Meadows Hut is a great place to go! My only regret is not traversing to and staying at the Sir Sanford Hut.
