August 18, 2002, Mt. Rainier NP, Paradise Lost
WA Cascades West Slopes South (Mt Rainier)
Clear skies and mild temps greeted us on our arrival at Paradise to work the slopes on and around the Paradise Glacier. Cupping was minimal; east facing aspects skied the smoothest but it was all great. There's still skiable snow up there, if you're willing to climb for it. Check out the pics here. Once more, it is beginning to look like, with a little luck it will last us until the snow flies again this year.
