Mt. Rainier: Summit Climbs Unable to Climb Due to Weather

The Four Day Summit Climb teams led by RMI Guides Win Whittaker and Geoff Schellens were unable to make a summit attempt of Mt. Rainier due to poor weather.  The teams experienced high winds, hail, rain and lightening overnight, fortunately they remained safely tucked in a Camp Muir.
The teams will start their descent from Camp Muir later this morning and will arrive at Paradise in the early afternoon.

Tyler Reid and the Expedition Skills Seminar Team - Emmons called from Camp Schurman. All is well with the group. They dressed to climb during a small weather window @ 2am this morning but were shut down by hail and lightning. They have around 4 inches of wet snow at Schurman. I estimated about a foot of new up high on the mountain and Tyler says it is probably more.
They are training intermittently today and will head down tomorrow morning.


Mt. Rainier: Climbing Teams on the Summit!

The Expedition Skills Seminar - Paradise led by RMI Guide Mike Haugen reached the summit of Mt. Rainier today.  The team spent several nights on the mountain training for their summit attempt on Rainier and gaining knowledge and experience for future climbs.  Today is the sixth and final day of this program putting their new skills to use.

RMI Guide Tyler Reid led the Four Day Summit Climb to the summit this morning.  As of 7:30 am both teams were at the top of Disappointment Cleaver on their descent.  It’s a bluebird day on Mt. Rainier, clear skies and warm temperatures.  The teams will return to Camp Muir for a short break before continuing to Paradise.

We look forward to seeing both teams at Rainier BaseCamp this afternoon.  Congratulations to today’s climbing teams!


10 Reasons To Ski Chile’s Volcanoes

An accomplished skier and mountaineer, RMI Guide Tyler Reid knows a thing or two about exciting ski mountaineering trips and the Chile’s Volcanoes Ski Mountaineering Expedition stands out as one of his favorites. Tyler sat down to reflect on ten of the best things about skiing the Chilean Volcanoes:

10. The Timing. September is an amazing time to be skiing, and a healthy dose does wonders for your patience level while waiting for the Northern Hemisphere winter.

9. Pisco Sours. The perfect cap on any ski day.

8. Araucarias (Monkey Puzzle Trees). Combined with the volcanic lunar landscapes, these add to the prehistoric nature of the subalpine landscapes, and you get the sensation you might run into dinosaurs at any moment.

7. Young Volcanoes. Villarica’s summit crater is a boiling cauldron. Llaima last erupted in…2009!

6. 4 Volcanoes in 10 Days. Many expeditions are lucky to climb one mountain in 10 days.

5. The Proximity. The relative spacing of these four mountains could not be more perfect. Less car time, more skiing.

4. Light Backpacks. Most international expeditions involve hauling heavy loads. Not really the case on this trip. Three out of four of these peaks we ski with day packs.

3. The Corn. There’s something about Southern Hemisphere corn that’s extra buttery (corn snow that is).

2. The Country. Chile is a land of otherworldly landscapes, interesting culture, and incredibly friendly people.

1. Aesthetic Lines. The ski descents themselves are even more impressive than the summits.

Mt. Rainier: June 13th - Update

Our Four Day Summit Climb Teams Led by RMI Guides Tyler Reid and Pete Van Deventer were turned at 12,600’ due to weather.  The team climbed into a cap and reported low visibility, cold temperatures, snow showers a couple of inches of accumulation and light to moderate winds.  The teams are en route Back to Camp Muir and will be back at Rainier Basecamp early this afternoon.

Congratulations to Today’s Teams.

Will and Tim it was an honor to have attempted the summit of Rainier with you. Pete, I would follow your lead up any mountain my friend. You kept it cool and calm under all conditions, including me tugging at your rope at 12,000ft.

Good try Ted and friends.  Weather can be the decider up on Rainier.  The Top of the Cleaver is still high, and it is the crux of the route you were on.  The mountain will always be there and I know you will go back.  Hopefully, I can go with you again!  Still a great adventure and a big accomplishment.

Mt. Rainier: June 9th Four Day Summit Climb Reaches Summit

The Four Day Summit Climb led by RMI Guide Tyler Reid was able to reach the summit of Mt. Rainier this morning.  Strong winds kept the group from spending much time on top.  As of 7:15 am they were at 12,900’ on their descent.
The group will take a short rest at Camp Muir before continuing down to Paradise later today.

Congratulations to today’s team!


Mt. Rainier: September 5, 2013 Update

Our Four Day Summit Climb Teams led by RMI Guides Tyler Reid and Garrett Stevens were roped up and ready to go early this morning but the ensuing lightening storm and thunder showers kept the teams at Camp Muir.  They plan on leaving Camp Muir at about 8 a.m. this morning and will make their way back to RMI Basecamp early this afternoon.

Congratulations to today’s teams.

Juli, Megan, and Wes,
Thinking about y’all and praying for good weather! Send pics when you can.
Much love, Karen and Steve

Hi Wes, Megan and Juli—not sure how the weather is and how it’s impacting climb, but hope you are having a blast regardless. We have been thinking of you all week. Love, Jake and June bug

Mt. Rainier: September 1, 2013

The Four Day Summit Climb led by RMI Guides Tyler Reid and Garrett Stevens made the prudent decision to call 11,200’ the team’s high point after encountering firm, icy conditions.  The team is making its way across the Cowlitz Glacier towards Camp Muir.  Once back at Camp Muir, everyone will refuel, rest, and repack for the descent back to Paradise.  We look forward to seeing the team back in Ashford early this afternoon.

Kathy and Michelle,  Even though the weather didn’t cooperate, I couldn’t be prouder of my two sisters!  Love, Tamra

Michelle,
  This looks so spectacular! Enjoy the rest of your time in Seattle, cant wait to hear all about it. Love Trish
