      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!

WA pass steeper ski options?

Recommended Posts

Hey y'all! I've been racking my head trying to think of some ski options out around WA pass that involve steeper skiing. I've done most of the classics (Black peak, Silver star, SEWS couloir, Birthday tour, ect.) But I'm looking for something a little more interesting. Am I missing anything obvious? I know there's no shortage of terrain out there but I'm hoping that some of you grizzled veterans might have some suggestions?

You might want to look around the north side of Mt. Hardy and the South side of Graybeard.

There is a steep line on the north side of Hardy and one on the north side of Tower Mountain.

 

You can also traverse from Rainy Pass to the north facing side of Goode/Storm King.

Yes indeed, the N side of Hardy has both the NE couloir and the Open Fly couloir.

 

Don't forget to plug the east face of Graybeard too!

 

To this discussion I'd also add the NW face of Black. For something that's steep but not godawful steep, the S facing couloirs on Whistler make for fine skiing.

Thank you all for the suggestions! I knew I was forgetting some obvious options, totally forgot about Hardy and the north side routes. Also, the stuff along Kangaroo ridge looks like good fun.
