      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!

*** Marmot Alpinist Mt. Parka****

Recommended Posts

One of Marmot's first Alpine Parkas >>>NEW CONDITION<<<and one that I purchased in 1978 for my wife when we both were actively snow climbing. This was Marmot's Premier Highest Quality ~1976-80's Parkas, made by MARMOT GORE TEX COLORADO US [their factory was in Grand Junction, Colorado].
