Trip Reports

Mount Dickerman - January 1, 2014
Due to the severe lack of snow, we were unable to go Snow Wheeling for the Annual Hangover Run. In our quest to find snow, Steve and I decided to climb Mount Dickerman on New Years Day 2014. The 360 view from the top was completely worth the effort. We could see from Mount Baker to Mount Rainier. The weather was incredible, and completely unexepected. It felt like June 1st instead of January 1st. I've posted a more detailed Trip Report on the forum.
Climbing and Glissading on Mount Pilchuck - June 1, 2013
Climbing Mount Pilchuck in the snow is something that I've been wanting to do for a long time. After seeing n16ht5's recent trip report I was happy to see that there was still a decent amount of snow up there. When EBSteve asked if I wanted to go, he didn't have to ask twice. I invited my uncle at the last minute and he was in too! We hit the trailhead bright and early and were the first on the mountain. The road was pretty much clear to the parking lot. We started out with the snowshoes on thinking the snow was going to be soft at the lower elevation. We ditched the snowshoes pretty early, didn't really need them. The snow was plenty firm. Had to lock in the hubs in a few spots. Sections of the trail were steeper than I had expected. Nice to have a little challenge here and there. We got some great glissading in on the way down. Check out the video of the hike.
