      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!

Recommended Posts

I need to spend a night outside in the mountains before I cut myself -- assuming favorable weather later this week(haha) anybody have any good ideas for an early season overnight ski tour? Need some inspiration

 

TIA!

something high... decent snow didn't start until 5600' off SR2 this past weekend, and its only gotten warmer since, I believe.

I was up at Cutthroat Pass a few weeks ago and I thought the touring would have been pretty good. Not sure what the snow is like now though.

Ruth Mountain off of 542. I was up there 2 weeks ago and slept on the bench on the south side of the summit. There was a great slope above where we slept that felt like a permanent snow field. You do have to cross a glacier to get to the summit. The bridges were obvious and possibly dubious. :D

Muir was skiing nicely last Monday... light powder and not too blasted. Scrubby down low and I accidentally rail-slided a staircase into the parking lot.

 

Gate opened bright and early at 11am after a light storm... I can't believe people put up with that on a regular basis!
