      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!

white river entrance info center

Recommended Posts

anyone,

 

i'm struggling to find info on what time the white river center opens up for climbers to register during mid to late May. how early/late are they open? is there a way to obtain the register forms necessary before arrival?

 

i'd like to automate this process as much as possible.

 

any info would be much appreciated.

You can self-register right now. There are no crowds on Rainier at this time. I spoke to the ranger yesterday and he said nobody had even climbed emmons this year yet.

how does one self-register half way across the country? is there a form on the link provided? did i miss it? or can this step/process only be done in person during late May?

 

i don't need to reserve any camp site, but i do need to register for a late May attempt at climbing the peak.

 

thanks again,

JCS

Depending on when you go (weekend or non-weekend) and what route you want to climb will help you determine if you need to make a reservation (see links on Mark Husbands reply) or if you can just show up and register in person. Make a call to the information center at longmire and the rangers will probably have an answer for you grin.gif

I've called the rangers. My partner has called the rangers. And each call's answer was different. I was told self registering from the white info center ends on Saturday the 28th of May. While my partner was told that we would need to register with the rangers in person. We plan to show up late on a Weds night. Either sleep in the car or attempt to head up glacier basin trail in the dark after self registering.

 

opinions? let 'em rip!
