Elevation: 6,000'

Our RMI Expedition Skills Seminar- Winter checked in this morning from about 6,000 feet on Mt. Rainier. Six inches of snow yesterday and another foot through the night has kept Casey and Jake and the team busy training. Sturdy winter camp construction, a focus on avalanche awareness and how to travel in winter conditions have been the focus. Today’s plans include scouting the route uphill but waiting until the winds abate before attempting to move higher. Stay tuned!



Hi Elizabeth, we are thinking of you very much from Zinal! We are so proud to know you! A big hug from the bottom of our Heart!  All the best for you and your team.  Annick & Pieder
