    I’m willing to snow camp, but not available for the 1st weekend in December. It doesn’t matter if its cabin or tent, I have gear.

    Cool — is the weekend of 12/10 ok or better for everyone? If so I’ll try to get the cabin (again!) :bananas:

    I might be going up to Meadows to scope things out on Monday next week if they get over 5 inches this weekend. If anyone is down to get some touring in, let me know. Also, I would be down for the Cooper Spur route climb in Dec if conditions are good. I know the Mt St Helens south route really well. That would be a fun overnight or day trip in Dec.

    Is anyone thinking about taking any avalanche courses this year? I was thinking about getting certified this season. Stoked on the snow falling, can’t wait for the season to start!

    Don’t be surprised if you encounter ice. You need more than 5 inches of snow for it to be worth the trip. Bring your crampon if you plan on going above 8500 feet. I read a trip report on turns all year that several folks encounter similar conditions.

    I was thinking about taking a level 1 course at Oregon avalanche. http://oravalanche.org/level1/ Looks like they have a course in March that is open.

    i was on zig zag glacier and canyons on thursday and it was super good. only a couple of spots of the old permanant snowpack poking thru. bottomless turns that were very high quality snow.

    I was just at Timberline yesterday skinning around with the wife, it’s still pretty poor coverage. We started up towards Zig Zag, but it was super windy and icy so we headed for the trees. Hopefully we’ll get some more snow this week; that should help. This weekend is no good for hood for me, but the weekend after (11/25 or 11/27?) I’m down to hit Newton (near Meadows) with ya… pending snow levels. =)

    I’m going to be in Seattle this Saturday so I’m thinking of checking out a quick day trip in the N. Cascades on Sunday…they have way more snow up there right now. I’ll let you know if I find any goods!

    I asked ONC about getting the A frame cabin 12/10, so we’ll see what turns up there.

    UPDATE: Russ at ONC says we can book the cabin, but he won’t reserve it now. He says with 2 weeks notice we can reserve it. So I’ll email him on 11/26 and reserve it for the night of 12/10. :thumpsup:

    Stay tuned…

    i’ll go up if there’s more than a foot of fresh snow and the conditions aren’t sketchy. Otherwise, I don’t think it would be worth the time. Forecast model is calling up to 24 inches of snow. So, keep your fingers cross…

    sunday is going to be awesome up there. its gonna be cold and clear with a bunch of new snow. as long as its not too wind affected it will be great. Trust me guys the zig zag glacier is really good right now, it just takes a while to get to the toe of the snowfield. here was my last day up there, a week ago today.

    as you can see it was plenty soft, and you’re on a glacier so you don’t have to worry about coverage.
    sadly i will be working all weekend mounting, grinding, drilling and filling.

    i wanna hit this steep looking side peak on st helens monitor ridge route. it looks sweet. i stare at it every time i go up there.

    its super south facing and you gotta be at the top early style to hit it. will definitely require overnight bivy or super early alpine start.

    Can I come? I like alpine starts but mostly I just like steep faces. Thanks for the mini cooly stoke. I won’t forget about that little gem anytime soon.

    I will be out exploring around Hood for the next couple day’s (fri/sat/sun). Hoping to hit ski bowl if there’s enough snow. Thinking it might be a fun poach since. If anyone else is going to be out looking for pow turns fri or sat PM soon. Defiantly would be down to get into something higher up with a partner.

    Chris that face is sick, I’m def. down to hit that with you sometime soon. If there’s good conditions I can maybe do a quickie midweek thing.
