This weekend (5/16/15) Carl Simpson was back in our “Eastern” zone which is found not too far from Snoqualmie Pass. This trip would be with his number one ski partner, Tara, and good bro, Zack Jessel. The target was to shoot for some turns off of Hawkins Mountain. Even though this tour offers some similar views to our last trip into the Stuart Range, this adventure was started out of Salmon La Sac on the Cle Elum Valley road.

This past Sunday (5/10/15), I was going to meet up with the gang around 7:30 AM here on Snoqualmie Pass to roll for the Teanaway to find the last of the easy access, good corn. Well, at 7:30 Jeff Rich called me from my parking lot, to mention they were rolling back to North Bend to look for 4 pair of skis that flew off the ski rack on I-90. Long story short (minus all of the puking feelings, from everyone, including myself and they weren’t even my boards, but have been there before), half the crew called it a day as Carl Simpson and Jeff Rich rolled back to the city to rally some more boards. As you will see in the video below they found some in Jeff’s garage, however they only found one for Carl to go with the one and only good ski they found on the freeway. Crazy day, and I can’t believe we actually got into the Teanaway and ski a BIG day. Live to ski another day, and if you here of some skis found on the freeway recently, please give a shout out! Oh yeah, and the two growlers from Dru Bru sure capped off the wild first half and awesome second half of the day!

Jacob Mandell sent this one over from a 3 day tour he and Tanner Cunningham took this past April 29th thru May 1st, 2015. Below are a few words from Jacob and his recap of their adventure. .


We set out into a new zone neither of us had ever skied or hiked in; the Goat Rocks Wilderness. From April 29- May 1st we set up a base camp below Old Snowy Mountain. From there we circumnavigated Old Snowy, and Ives Peak while skiing from the summit of both and enjoying wonderful corn skiing on all aspects. On our last day we scored a sweet line off of Hawkeye Point, and packed camp, and continued with our 5 mile walk out to the truck. A perfect ski trip in true Wilderness.

Here’s another Mt. Adams vid from this past May 3rd, 2015. This was the day after Jeff and Carl did the Mt. Tahoma trip with our North of the border bro, Andy Traslin. They had enough energy after the Rainier day to rally the back road to Adams for a 7K BIG day. Screen capture of Andy Traslin and Rowan Stewart on the Summit & below is a short edit Jeff Rich put together of the trip.

Quick look at conditions East of the Cascade Crest, over in the Teanaway Valley. This is to be today’s target as well, however we were held up a little with a gear mishap, so I though I’d post up this edit really quickly while I wait for the gang to roll over Snoqualmie Pass. Oh, BTW, Happy Mother’s Day, Mom and all you awesome mothers out there!

This past Saturday (5/2/15) Jeff Rich, Carl Simpson, Andy Traslin, and Rowen Stewart all set out for Mt. Rainier’s Little Tahoma (via the Sunrise entrance). As you will see in the video, Carl and Jeff hit it perfectly, once again! Below are a few words from Jeff along with his sweet edit of the day.

 

Andy Traslin and I had been discussing skiing Rainier as soon as we had warm enough temps and soft conditions. With little in the way of high condition reports, I held off. A young ambitious whipper snapper split boarder, that goes by the name of Rowan Stewart, contacted me about doing a traverse from Paradise- Little Tahoma- and exiting via the Fryingpan. Some how I was able to convince the talented little knuckle dragger into just going up the Fryingpan and back out the same entrance. With an opportunity to scout conditions, it was time to call Traslin… and of course my Right Hand Man, Carl Simpson, who is always down to slay and lives 30 minutes from our destination of play. Here is the short vid of what We found.

I spent some time on the phone with a friend the other day, who was asking where to get the “closest from car”, good, ski touring right now. My answer was head to the Paradise parking lot in the Mt. Rainier National Park, and take a walk towards the Muir Snowfield, or many other close, fun lines. Below is a short edit from Carl Simpson’s day on Mt Rainier this past Thursday (4/30/15).
