I've only been here for two spring/summer seasons, but the past two years its seemed like June is the best combination of reliable corn-producing weather and plenty of snowpack. July can also be rad-...

Beautiful day in the Tatoosh yesterday. 1:38 of which I remembered to turn my camera on:

Above treeline the top 1 inch was windslab sluff, and on convexities I could get about 5-6 inches of windslab to break away. Rock solid in the trees, stayed out of anything truly steep and wind...

Skied Turkey Chute today. Mix of windbuff (the good kind) and high density pow. Fun fast turns through the bottom of the chute and into the apron.

I think I might do a proper old-school TR. But you guys get the goods first.
Let me set the mood for the day with a frame grab:

Walked up from Mirror Lake. Long ass approach.
Today was the definition of a sleeper day. Pics and video tonight.

We did a couple laps in the same area the day before, with less consolidated snow, and got CT14 and CT15 with Q2 shears. The only thing moving for us was 6ish inches of heavily wind loaded snow right...

TD&H mtn was good today. Real good. You guys ready for the Patatero show?

Approximately 5 minutes of good light in the Tatoosh before we got absolutely socked in:

I think today would fall under "exceeded expectations", particularly given how low expectations have been as of late.

Absolutely stunning day on Rainier with Patatero yesterday- sunny, with almost no wind and some low clouds. Neither of us had been up there before, so the standard Paradise-to-Muir route and down....

So Bachy is skiing ok?
Patatero and I are trying to determine course of action for this weekend. Clear skies could mean big targets to ski, but potential for death ice still exists.
12-30-2012, 08:00 AM
Anybody been in the Hood BC this weekend? Trying to determine if tomorrow will deliver consolidated pow or crusty death. Too cold for corn?
12-24-2012, 04:12 PM
Benk beat me to it...I still don't have my video edited. Oh well. Here are some pics from the Three Sisters BC adventure last week:

Three Sisters Backcountry with benk and a friend of his, skiing Sunday-today. It only snowed 3 feet of pure blower pow while we were there.
The sun came out once yesterday:

The last time this question came up, the answer was Hillcrest Sports in Gresham. I forgot the name of the guy to ask for...someone should chime in shortly with the right person.

Up Newton Canyon with Patatero and reidhresko. Started with a fun log-straddling creek crossing, and then we almost bailed when we had to stop skinning and hike (not bootpack) up the ridge because...

TL;DR: If you are heading into the BC, please dig a quick pit and check the stability.

Anybody want to go skin around White River tomorrow? No guarantee that there will actually be skiing. Perhaps only skinning and some pit digging.

I would not go to Snowshoe- I would head for Timberline/Canaan Valley. Better terrain, and no qualms from patrol about skinning around the resort.
