      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] Ruth - Standard 11/11/2014

Trip: Ruth - Standard

 

Date: 11/11/2014

 

Trip Report:

Well, It's still early to be skiing but you can find turns out there. The trail was an ice rink so make sure to bring some sort of traction.

 

Once you round the knoll on Hannegan pass the wind hits you full force. I had the pleasure of dealing with gale force winds all the way up to the top. I foolishly forgot to bring my balaclava so I improvised and wrapped my face with a spare t-shirt, it was that bad.

 

The turns weren't anything to write home about but it still was a lot of fun. All in all not a bad early season ski session. Now, onto the few pics I managed to take before my battery froze.

 

The mighty Shuksan.
