Welcome to SP!  -

It just does not get any better than this. Spring ski mountaineering camp near Tank Lakes

Occupation: well, my *pre* occupation is mountains

Interests & attitude: I am based in Seattle, game to go most anywhere in the NW. Always interested in multi-day wilderness scrambling & moderate technical climbs, plus backcountry skiing. I like the remote and uncrowded, less-popular areas. Have considerable firsthand knowledge of the WA North Cascades backcountry. Some of the areas I favor and visit frequently:
The entire chunk of wilderness covered by the North Cascades National Park and Glacier Peak Wilderness, with a special emphasis on the crest of the Cascades from the Ptarmigan and Isolation Traverses, on up thru the Pickets, and the Chilliwacks at the head of Depot Creek; also the peaks around Fisher Creek, such as Logan, Arriva, Ragged Ridge. The Monte Cristos also get special mention. In the skiing department I am continuing to seek out new first multi-day traverses; this is the area where I feel I might be doing something original instead of following in others footsteps. For an example, see: http://www.justgetout.net/Wenatchee/post/Complete-ski-traverse-of-Chelan-Ridge
