Very nice TR. I'm awaiting the Hood report; I'm flying up on Tuesday for a Thursday summit attempt.


Nice ...     2011-06-14 13:12:09
Congrats on the summit! That's the same route we took many years ago. Just an FYI, you climbed Steamboat Prow (yet another summit you can count ) to descend that chute to Camp Schurman (as did we). Good on ya givin' Amar a plug on his website ... he's done some truly awesome stuff (with some really talented people). Happy trails!


great work     2011-06-14 14:19:34
I am interested in your Hood reports. How could you not have an eye on that guy this season.


Thanks     2011-06-15 11:31:46
Theodore and bckcntryskr- I am working on the Hood report. Should have it out in not too long. I am hoping to have it done before I head back into the mountains tomorrow afternoon. If it is not done by then it will probably be next week before it is up

Presto-Yeah I am impressed with how much Amar has done out there. That is cool that you guys climbed the same route we did. Rainier was a great experience and that chute sure was a fun ski


Nice ride!     2011-06-16 09:24:35
Looks like a sweet trip Zach. Impressive climb/ski. Looking forward to the Hood TR too.


Glad you enjoyed it Carl     2011-06-16 12:45:00
I just posted the Hood trip report for those of you that have been waiting.


Way to Go!     2011-06-17 09:38:29
Nice work Zach! I should've been there with you guys! What a week or two of skiing the big pacific volcanoes!
