    I am going to try to get out for tours on sat, sun, and monday. Depending on conditions and availbility of a partner. I’m feeling extra energetic if anyone wants to do something of epic proportions. If not, I’m game for mellow too.

    Anyone have plans for Wednesday 03/05 or Friday 03/07? They look like my only two possible days out this week.

    Open to anything really. If it’s lifts I’ll probably just go to Steven’s pass. It should be pretty nice and uncrowded hopefully. Alpental is also a consideration.

    My plan is to leave at 7(bothell), and ride til 3 or so I can be back to bothell by 4:30 at the latest.

    If I ride lifts it’ll be at Stevens as well as I have a midweek pass there. Probably tour on Wednesday somewhere.

    Gents, I can’t make Tuesday at all, but still would be willing to hook up with someone for Wednesday or Friday. Those are the only flexible days on my schedule this week. Thanks, and I’m glad we seem to have found winter in the mountains again. This springlike stuff has a time and place, now is not the time and the PNW is not the place.

    Jack, that is a harsh equation. With that as a restriction you still seem to hit the shit out of it when you get a chance. All of your TR’s show you submerged in nearly limitless powder, so week day or week end you know where to get it good.

    Went to steven’s today and rode alone. It was actually pretty nice to ride inbounds by myself for a change. Snow was pretty good, but it didn’t make me feel anybetter. Had to call in sick again. will try again tomorrow. Anybody want to go out for a tour tomorrow? I seriously have to be back to bothell by 5 pm. Can get an early start though.

    Will be bringing one dog.

    ale_capone,

    I’m working late tonight but able to make a go of it tomorrow. I may be tired. I probably can’t get out of the house before 6am after getting the family ready and off to daycare/work. If you let me know details here or via PM I will get home, pack my stuff and then check back in.

    Why only one of the dynamic duo?

    didn’t get your PM a_p until this afternoon, was at Stevens as well. Had a good day overall. Snow was much better on 7th than the backside.

    That’s totally cool. I really did have a good time today not having to worry about ‘where we are going’ or where everybody was doing.. nice to just get out and flow around.

    I agree seventh heaven had teh best snow. I still had to go explore around and prove it to myslef. Did find some really good pockets of loven all over the place. … MAybe next time.

    Mumbles… I’ll send you a PM.

    Not sure if anybody is interested or has the time off, but I’m looking to climb/ride St Helens the week of the 24th. As of now, I’m planning on whatever days look best from the 24th to the 27th, with 2 days for the climb and being prepared for a third. Some combination of the Worm Flows/Monitor Ridge routes is the plan.

    Let me know if you think you’re interested.

    Double check that they plowed the road to Helens. I read (here or somewhere else) that there was 7 miles of unplowed road to get to the snow park. Who knows if they plowed it finally – might have just been them unable to catch up with the big dumps we got last month.

    Climbers Bivy at 3,800 ft is most likely unplowed. That way is no fun anyways. Lots of ups and downs. Go via Worm Flows from Marblemount Snowpark at 2,700 ft. Much more gradual and you can board to the car from the summit. Close to a 5,600 ft descent. Watch out for the slednecks in the beginning. However, from this route Monitor Ridge will be a long traverse back that will involve some elevation gain but you also get another run.

    Personally I would wait for a ridge of high pressure, rising freezing levels and light winds before heading up there. You might find some rime blasted bubbly ice. Then again you can always go check out the Shoe String on the east side. Also a long skin back though.

    Good luck and keep us posted on what you find.
