      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] Elkhorn Range, Anthony Lakes - Lees Peak 3/13/2014

Trip: Elkhorn Range, Anthony Lakes - Lees Peak

 

Date: 3/13/2014

 

Trip Report:

I got to the Anthony Lakes parking lot at 6pm and had just enough daylight to skin to the top of the ski hill to catch the sunset and scope a fresh ski track into the back country. This was my first time to the area and I was stoked. I figured I would wake up early and go for something moderate due to the fact I was solo.

The sunset was awesome and the moon was bright. I couldn't wait to start skiing in the morning. I figured I would get an alpine start to catch the sunrise from up high. I started up around 3:30 but the clouds had already started to gather. By 6am it was snowing and blowing. The summit of Lees Peak was nice but I didn't stick around. The snow varied like crazy from wild weather the previous week.

Oh yeah, the snow mobile accident is all settled, I got a sweet new set up and a little extra dough to cover trip costs. Lesson learned, when someone runs you over take pictures of the scene.
