Going up to Baker on Thursday and would like to go out of bounds if the snowpack allows.

I've experienced Mt Herman and the Table Mtn areas and I am willing to explore other areas.

I'm going, would prefer partner[s] to going alone, but have one constraint:  I need to ski at least 2800 vertical meters.  Are any of you folks interested in having a minimum vertical limit?

Last year, I skiied 27,000ft for my 27th birthday at Stevens Pass (free lift tickets on your birthday!)  This year I hoped to do the same, but not a *single* black run is open, and they recommend against skiing off the groomers for lack of snow.  So I've modified the annual resolution to EITHER 27-thousand feet of lift skiing, OR 28-hundred meters of backcountry.

2800 Meters, that's like 8000' right? (sorry, not a math guy)

Whew, I think climbing up Herman is around 1200' (not sure) so we'd be going up 7 times to reach your goal.

I could do the first few with you but I'm not into racing these days so I'd probably end up frustrating you with my  pace. I should pass on your offer.

From my experience you can always meet people on the mountain who are into having more people come along. Just don't go it alone. I know it's possible and I see people doing it but the snowpack it a quite suspect right now and you'll have no backup if something does slide on you.

One of the common trends among backcountry accident victims is risk taking due to a desired goal. Be safe out there and Happy Birthday!

Wow - that's quite a neat birthday tradition you have going Ania. In case anyone is wondering on the math, 2800meters is 9186ft. Sounds like a nice short day.  Smiley

PS: If you went to Rainier you could get that by doing two laps to Muir. If you were going this wkend I'd offer to join you--and I'm sure I can find a few more to come along who enjoy really long days.

Ania,  the 13th is my birthday also, although I own an extra 30 years over your 28.  I think Stevens will be acceptable tomorrow especially with the convergence, free lift ticket and a few high speed lifts.  I also heard from another aged powder afflicted addict that there's plenty of powder available for owners of skins.  

If you do go to Baker, try to link up with Mark or Tim, they'll keep you alive and Tim will probably film your cycles.

So Ania and Zap, how did your 9,186vft and 19,028vft go? And if you didn't complete it, will you not get older until you do?
