      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!

Adams South Spur Conditions?

Recommended Posts

Anybody been on Adams lately was thinking of taking my son there for a snowboarding trip if snows still OK. We would camp at lunch counter so just back down the south spur from summit.

Thanks

Jason

We were up there last weekend and there were tons of skiers and snowboarders and snow most of the way form the circle trail.

 

Expect some of that has melted by now but should be plenty of turns.

 

It was pretty soft early, we were moving from the lunch counter around 5am and didn't put crampons on until the last 800 or so feet to the false summit.

In the photo you can see a camp of skiers and boarders. One guy just kept going up the south route and boarding down. We saw one couple coming down on our approach and I don't think they had any other gear besides their boarda and boots.

Does anybody know about how far from the trailhead the snow starts? We are going tomorrow and trying to decide if we hike from the car in boots or if we start in Running shoes. Thanks!

Snowline at the bottom of the Crescent "glacier" 8/3, heavy suncups halfway between lunch counter and Pikers, still a good 2,000+ of good skiing!
