Central Cascades

Central Cascades 


Central Cascades Volcanoes dot the spine of the Central Cascade Mountains, rising over 10,000 feet above the forests, lakes, and rivers of the surrounding region. These peaks run north and south allowing us to take advantage of both the dry east side and wetter west side depending on conditions to create perfect backpacking and mountaineering objectives. The area has a complex geologic history; you can find active glaciers methodically carving away the mountain and the dramatic traces of avalanches that altered the landscape. It is these features of the volcanoes that create a challenging playground from which you and your team will learn the more technical aspects of mountaineering and backpacking.
