Mt. Rainier: Intro to Ski Mountaineering is Underway

Hello from 6200’!

We spent the day in Ashford yesterday organizing gear and getting our ski kits dialed in.

The road to Paradise was delayed in opening due to the 13” of new snow overnight!

We kept ourselves busy this morning tour planning and exercising our map and compass skills, while enjoying coffee and patiently waiting for the plows to finish their job.
The late arrival was worth it, and we made good time to our campsite here in the Upper slopes of the Paradise Valley.  After building a bomber camp we went out for a cocktail hour ski back down the valley a few hundred feet.

We are all cozy here in camp and looking forward to clear skies and more training tomorrow!

Cheers,

RMI Guides Solveig Waterfall, Bryan Hendrick, and the team!

Great photos, Solveig. Looks like great fun: Maybe even for our age group. The snow season is about over here.
Cheers, Joe
