WA Cascades West Slopes South (Mt Rainier)
Birthday Hopes of skiing the Paradise Gl from Anvil were dashed by inclement weather. Nonetheless we trudged off into the whiteout to get some exercise and hopefully, a few turns. Heavy recent snow, also heavily reworked by the winds produced surfaces conditions beneath the base of Pan ranging from wind scoured boilerplate to massive corniced drifts. All in all pretty good Braille skiing for the vision challenged.
