The North Cascades are notoriously inhospitable in winter. The greatest seasonal snowfall on earth — 1140 inches — was recorded at Mount Baker Ski Area in 1998-99. A typical Cascade winter brings not only deep snow, but also periods of heavy rain. For the winter traveler, these conditions mean exhausting travel, danger from hypothermia, and serious avalanche risk. History of the North Cascades by Lowell Skoog. Check out the book that Lowell is working on. http://written-in-the-snows.net/ Thanks Lowell, for the hard work. We all love what you are doing and will spread the word in the ski mountaineering community, so we can get motivated and use the information at hand to ski new lines, climb unclimbed faces, and push the sport in a natural way to progressing past the past.
