      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] North Sister - Collier Glacier 8/28/2013

Recommended Posts

Trip: North Sister - Collier Glacier

 

Date: 8/28/2013

 

Trip Report:

I went hunting for skiable snow on the Collier this last week in my quest to make turns in Oregon every month of the year.

I found a little bit, lower than I expected, just above our cozy bivy spot at the start of the moraines. At least 87ft of glorious turns just after sunset!

Plenty of it up higher, though I didn't get the chance to ski this shot :(

I did a quick write up on this trip and a little bit about my new addiction if anyone is bored and needs a little bit of stoke.

Of course, if you're reading "The Freshiezone" in August, you're probably also an addict and saw this all ready. In that case, sorry for the cross post.

 

I got a really good view from up there this week and I could see it...WINTER'S COMING!!!!!!!!

 

Gear Notes:

Water

20 lbs of resort gear just in case you run into ice while shredding

Water

A "light" rack and some of those springy clippy things in case you decide to climb to the top

Rope (in your partners pack)

Water

 

Approach Notes:

Don't cut yourself on all the broken glass lying everywhere.
