Touring partner for Seattle area? was created by masa
Trying to see if anyone wants to go touring or knows how to connect with people in the Seattle area. I am just getting my AIARE 1 and have no friends that do backcountry, so I have been led here to find a partner. Ive been skiing for most of my life but have no experience touring, and have good overall stamina and fitness. I usually ski alpental, but would be willing to go anywhere withing like 2hrs of the Seattle area.

Hey Leo, I'd be down for a tour sometime! I have an epic pass but down to tour Snoqualmie/Stevens/crystal areas. I'm from just outside of Seattle. I got my level one two seasons ago and have been touring occasionally, gradually easing into terrain. A little snow at the passes already, getting pumped!

I'm also up for some touring. I don't know if there is enough snow anywhere yet, but hopefully soon.

Good morning Masa,  I live in Gold Bar and typically tour Stevens Area.  I have been skiing back country for years and I am always looking for partners.  I don't  care how well you ski just that you really know how to use that beacon and find me. haha  Please message me as the snow falls and I would love to hook up.  For anyone else responding to this thread hit me up as well.  

Cheers,

Kendall W.

Hey Masa,

I’m in the same boat as you. Went touring once last season and signed up to take my AIARE class in January. Also looking for partners and will ski wherever! Would love to link up.

Masa and all who are on this thread

I would love to get a good list of people to tour with. I have my level 1 from years ago, I also take the one day rescue course every year as a refresher. I have been backcountry skiing for a long time (20+ years), I am fit and love to ski. Mostly though I just love being in the mountains. We moved to Washington early last year but I have not been able to find a lot of partners yet (young son at home keeping me busy). I did manage to ski a bunch in the Alpental valley last year, as well skiing Mt Baker in May. I am in Issaquah and can ski most any weekend all winter and would be super psyched to find some people for bigger objectives in the spring

I am also looking for BC ski partners.  Hopefully we have coverage soon!

Level 1 too and ski down at Crystal since I live in Bonney Lake. Hard to break into a group around here. Have been BC for many years around Crystal and always looking for partners.  Steve

Welcome all. Let's get a trip going when we get enough snow. I did a snowshoe trip from Paradise on Saturday. There are places where you can make some nice turns, but there are lots of sharks also. Until we get more snow, expect damage if you go skiing up there.

Sounds good. Definitely interested, even for some exploratory outings (snowshoes...) to meet people and see new places, till we get enough snow.
