Mt Rainier Ski Descent (March Update)
I will keep it short. @ has recently shared very detailed TR. https://turns-all-year.com/trip-reports/mt-rainier-ski-descent
We climbed Saturday of 3/13/21. Assessing Ingraham Glacier from Camp Comfort, it seemed risky to go down Ingraham Direct toward exit through Cadaver Gap. Have we had a choice of staying another night Muir, I would have liked to take a chance, because it looked like there was path, and that would have been a fun adventure. https://drive.google.com/file/d/1FbyNdLnUsh9C25QjJeecP_hhcjFUQPyW/view?usp=sharing
We ended up deciding to go down the couloir next to Nisqually ice fall. Snow there was firm, but held adequately. This is not the route I would recommend to anyone because of the icefall. https://drive.google.com/file/d/1YKAk0QSeMloI2NR0xxrOw9dFETZNrI-k/view?usp=sharing
Upper Ingraham is well covered with snow now, which is firm as always. There is the one bergschrund at approximately 13,500, passable on the right.
