      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] Muir Snowfield - Muir to Nisqually Chutes 1/25/2015

Trip: Muir Snowfield - Muir to Nisqually Chutes

 

Date: 1/25/2015

 

Trip Report:

Skiing has been on the sparse side this winter. After deciding we had to ski something Cman and I headed for Paradise and Muir since it seemed like a sure bet. After seeing a lineup of cars and fans going to SeaTac to wish the Seahawks a Bon Voyage we did have second thought about our objective but those faded.

 

We got a slacker 10 AM start from Paradise and joined the herd of skiers. Sunshine didn't suck, but there were some winds up high. After a brief rest at Muir we were downward bound.

 

The upper field was the best with a thin breakable crust, but the crust thickened with elevation loss.

The best snow in the Chutes that day was on skiers left.
