      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 ski this weekend?

Recommended Posts

Haven't ever gone this late in the season- what is the ski down the S climb like if we get an early summit and can pick the time of descent for soft snow? Huge suncups, etc. that won't make it enjoyable?

go look on tay or such for the latest TRs. I think part of the chutes are probably still ok. But heard the south side was tore up with suncups and glissade chutes. really just your tolerance for carrying over dirt and dealing with less than ideal snow--but less than ideal snow is still snow, and much better than just having dirt.

Two weeks ago there were enormous suncups below Lunch Counter. Descent snow on Piker's south face (and probably the chutes as well). Generally the chutes were smoother I heard... and you basically ski better snow until you need to schwack down to the round the mountain trail.

 

Skiing from the summit was absolutely terrible, and I enjoy skiing shitty snow.
