Inter Glacier, Steamboat Prow
WA Cascades West Slopes South (Mt Rainier)
Started hiking at 8am. The 3.5 mile approach has a lot of debris and snow bridges to watch out for. It isn’t worth it to put skis on during any of the approach.
Inter Fork Crossing was easy. Stashed trail runners on a rock and transitioned.
Skinning all the way up the glacier is good. No side-hilling, no ice, snow wasn’t too heavy. I didn’t see any signs of snow instability, including roller balls. I did not see any crevasse openings.
Fun corn skiing around noon
Ditto on the fun corn skiing, Angie. The snout was in fine form, even the lower basin seemed less sticky than usual.
