      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!

Paradise skiing, 12/15

Recommended Posts

I went up to Paradise with a few friends to ski yesterday and had a good time in the copious fresh snow. It was blowing spindrift and snowing most of the time, but my friends got in some good turns while I flailed gracelessly downhill. The east slopes were heavily windloaded and we saw a recent foot-high fracture line on the way down (Geek the Greek skied right over it in the whiteout).


A party of out-of-towners was headed up to Muir that day to attempt a summit climb shocked.gif. They said they had a week to do it and were going to stay at the hut there if necessary. So I'm curious: has anyone here made an extended (forced or otherwise) stay at Le Grand Hotel Muir in the winter? I'd love to hear stories of puffing with the resident snafflehounds to pass the time between trips outside to shovel the door clear.
