Mt. Rainier:  Ski Mountaineering Seminar Comes to an End

Here is one to write home about!

Today we woke at dawn to the clearest skies in a week.  Mount Rainier and the surrounding volcanoes of Hood and Adams were clear and bathed in morning alpenglow without a breath of wind in the air.  Below our home at Camp Muir we had quite a treat waiting for us, 4500 feet of untracked snow begging for our signature.  We obliged and milked powder turns down the snowfield, grinning from ear to ear as we skied the best conditions our host had to offer.  It doesn’t get better than this, skiing so much vertical with all the hard work done and a perfect day to match our enthusiasm.  Our finest pitch was just into our old camp and we could admire our tracks while we clicked in for our last push to the parking lot.  One last look up at Mount Rainier to admire our stellar morning and we could see our route down before a cloud swallowed Camp Muir and sealed the day.

Perfect weather, conditions, and team - couldn’t ask for more.  Thanks Marci, Kirk and Uncle Bob for an excellent time skiing in the mountains,

RMI Guides Jake Beren, Solveig Gerhart and the RMI team
