With the biggest “late season” snowpack in the Cascades since regular stats began in 1916 (on Mt. Rainier) we though a visit to Mt. Adams and Mt. Hood might be a good choice for the upcoming week. I can’t help but reflect on my second trip to the classic SW Chutes on Adams whenever someone happens to mention the STEEP and quite epic 4,000 foot chute. The video below was part 5 of 5 from the Snoqualmie Snow Troopers’ year end movie for the 05/06 season. This trip was just Dale, his pups Boots and Hobart, Trooper dog and myself. Note: The video thumbnail below shows the main SW Chute that starts directly below the False Summit, goes between the two long rock ridges and rolls much steeper for the last couple hundred feet where ridges end.
