      WELCOME TO THE CASCADECLIMBERS.COM FORUMS   02/03/18

      We have upgraded to new forum software as of late last year, and it makes everything here so much better!  It is now much easier to do pretty much anything, including write Trip Reports, sell gear, schedule climbing related events, and more. There is a new reputation system that allows for positive contributors to be recognized,  it is possible to tag content with identifiers, drag and drop in images, and it is much easier to embed multimedia content from Youtube, Vimeo, and more.  In all, the site is much more user friendly, bug free, and feature rich!   Whether you're a new user or a grizzled cascadeclimbers.com veteran, we think you'll love the new forums. Enjoy!

Rainier ski early June

Recommended Posts

I'm looking for some ski partners for an early June Rainier ascent, probably Emmons depending on conditions, and I'm flexible to go midweek. I would prefer people with some experience at altitude because I don't want to have to turn around. I'm an experienced Rainier connoisseur and Backcountry skier, but haven't yet been able to ski to the summit yet. I will ditch the skis and walk if it gets sketchy - the goal is to have fun!

Current pictures I've seen show really bad conditions on the upper part of Rainier. Maybe it's "skiable", but I doubt it's very fun skiing. Maybe better to plan a walk-up.

Kameron, is there a good place to find current-ish photos? I live out in Montana, and this & the Rainier climbing conditions blog is the only place I really know to find trip reports, etc. I'm really hoping the mountain's skiable early/mid June, and am super curious about what things look like currently.
