February 24, 2002, Paradise, Mt. Rainier
WA Cascades West Slopes South (Mt Rainier)
With 12 inches of new overnight at 1 -- 26 degrees, we had to go. Low ceiling to start. So we did Mazama and back bowl (6 inches over crust)and then down the ridge to the glades (12-24 inches of new in the trees) real nice if you can ski heavy powder (my Super Stinx shown! :-). Then broke trail back up the ridge on the open slopes above Paradise Valley Road for another run down, powder flowing waist deep. Great!
