      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] Ski touring in Grad school - all over the PNW 5/20/2013

Trip: Ski touring in Grad school - all over the PNW

 

Date: 5/20/2013

 

Trip Report:

This past fall I moved Spokane to continue PA school at UW. Previously I had a very flexible work schedule (8 days off in a row) and was living at Alpental. But now I am a weekend warrior and in class 9 hours everyday with numerous evening and weekend clinics, workshops, etc. Needless to say, I was a bit worried about my skiing opportunities this winter. Thankfully I met some great new ski partners and got to explore lots of new areas in the PNW that I would have probably never been to otherwise. Here are some pictures from my past winter.

All pictures by me, Kevin Oberholser, unless otherwise noted.

Nice pics brother man! Careful, the fact that you did all that while attending PA school full time is going to make some desk jockeys very depressed. :brew:

The Mantana photos make me super envious. Care to share the beta on that zone?

 

If you're interning at CWH it'd be cool to meet you, I have a nursing gig there.

Nice Kev. All the hard work will pay off soon. Hopefully we can get out one of these days.

John/Pete/murse: As of my last meeting, it sounds like I'll still be doing a bunch of clinical rotations in the Wenatchee and Chelan area, most likely jan-june time frame.

 

murse: The Mission Mountains are N of missoula, outside of St. Ignatus. The westside is Indian land so it requires a permit, which can be purchased at the town's gas station. Takes a healthy climb to get into the range. Let me know if you have questions.

Nice photo onslaught! That pic of you dropping into the Slot is super rad. All the folks at Pro Ski North Bend say hi, glad to hear you're killin' it. I'll be sure to say hi to the ol' condo manager too!
