Summer Big Mountain Snowboarding: Mt. Adams Is Hellishly Steep

Next Up

Every summer the good snowboarders of the Pacific Northwest enjoy weeks, if not months of bonus riding on glaciers and volcanoes. We're not talking about the friendly, park-loving folks at High Cascade or Windells. We're talking about getting up at dawn, summiting one of the Cascades, and picking your way down through crevasses and cliff bands while you're gripping an ice ax.

In this five-minute POV segment from Paul Stanley, you'll get to see how truly gnarly the descent of Mt. Adams is. No spoilers here, but let's just say it's pretty steep and pretty firm. If this line spikes your interest, we highly recommend you check out Paul's trip report on the Karakoram blog.
