The Whole Foods sponsored, all-star team of Chris Davenport, Daron Rhalves and Jess McMillan is set to begin their Cascade volcanoes slay fest tomorrow. Their goal is to climb and ski the major cascade volcanoes in 30 days.  The major peaks they have in their sights are Mount Baker, Glacier Peak, Mount Rainier, Mount Adams, Mount St. Helens, Mount Hood, Mount Jefferson, Mount Shasta, Lassen Peak.  Other Cascades will probably make their way onto the list as well.  ESPN Action sports broke the news last week:

These peaks can be tough to bag this time of year, and even tougher to ski.  Conditions can range from knee deep slush to rock hard wind board.  The weather changes on the drop of a dime, and usually for the worst.

With Davenport’s experience, a team of professional skiers and beta from the Unofficially un-sponsored Tahoe crew in Pacific Northwest they should have no problem fulfilling their objective.  Good luck guys!
