    So… just me and a buddy so far, but looking for weekend trips in WA/OR and potentially beyond. We both got all avy gear, and I got a sick lifted subie wagon that’ll get us anywhere. Let me know… bonus points if you’re based in Portland and can hang for beers post-mission!

    Cya… Jefe

    Chris, I’ll stop in and say what’s up sometime, I live in the SE. I heart the Cooper Spur area, Polallie Canyon is one of my favorites. Ever stay at the Tilly Jane cabin? Let’s link up and get some turns this winter! I just bought a new split so it’ll need some tuning and way here in short order. Are you downstairs in the rental/repair area?

    Yeah, I was pretty scared by the fire too. I’ll stop in and get waxed up as soon as my split arrives in the mail. Thanks!

    Just moved to the Portland area and looking for fellow spilitboarders as well. I have 4 years of snowboarding experience and 1 season of backcountry experience. I have avy1 and gear. Most of my experience was around the Mt Baker, North Cascade, and Steven Pass area. I am open to day and overnight trips. I have a 4wd truck and don’t mind driving. PM me if you are ever interested.

    Sounds good, will be in touch. I love the N Cascades, have you checked out this site yet? Full of inspiration, check the trip reports:

    I want on the bus! I’ve pulled summit rides from Hood, Helens and Adam’s. I am very comfortable w/ winter camping, snowcave’s etc. I’m limited to mostly weekends this season, but want to make the most of it. I’ve got a slightly lifted suburban, can take 6 w/ gear comfortably.

    pm for e-mail and number,
    Mike

    I’m in PDX – done a few backcountry trips and looking to ditch the snowshoes. Got the avy gear but haven’t taken a course yet – planning on signing up for the mountain savvy course later in the year (as that is typically when I go out touring with my buddies).

    I will have to stop by next adventure when i’m done with my DIY. Bought a used board off my buddy that has a couple of scratches that a base grind or a bit of ptex can probably fix.

    Sweet, will let you know when we are planning trips. Weekends usually. A friend and I are going up to Palmer snowfield this Sunday to mess around, unless it’s raining too bad…

    hey yo! it looks like tues and wednesday this coming week we will have a marine layer and low clouds, the volcanoes should be out and sunny. snow levels hovering around 7-8000 feet until then. on my way to the coffee shop today Hood was out for a second, looked nice and white. should be fresh snow on palmer, snow dome or up on muir snowfield at rainier. please let me know if anyone wants to go.

    Jefe- no probs on that hot wax. come back any time and i’ll hook it up with whatever tune work you need. just remember that 3 day turnaround.

    Mushi- bring it on in! ive also got some pretty cool lil ski inserts that will work great on a diy kit, so you can minimize the t-bolting required. if you t- bolt it all up, ive got some stuff called metal grip that will work much better than epoxying over the t-bolts. also, with the avy stuff, i usually start everyday with beacon practice and a couple of snowpits. so no worries if you haven’t done the avy 1. we’ll make some judgement calls on where we can go safely.

    hey jefe i’ll let you know. i should be able to work a bit ahead and take some time off. although i think it’ll be a bit stormy up there. tues and wednesday look like it’ll be the jam. check out the trip reports on cascade climbers.com there was a guy who climbed hood a couple of days ago and it looks real good.

    Tuesdays and wednesday ALWAYS have better snow, it’s some sort of curse or something for my sake. But hey no one is a real Cascade warrior unless they ride in the rain… You’ll suffer and you’ll LIKE it, son! :banghead:
