Mt Rainier NF pass required, you can pay at the gate.

There's lots of elevation gain on this trip, but the pace will be moderate.  Students who need a snow scramble and are sure they can handle a fairly strenuous trip are welcome to sign up.

I have an opening for an assistant leader, just looking for a scramble graduate or higher that can help out with the group. Contact me if you are interested, thanks.

Will do Steamboat Prowl , if the group is fast paced and are upto it.
