Mazama Ridge (Mount Rainier)

Trip

Intermediate Snowshoe - Mazama Ridge (Mount Rainier)

Celebrate the New Year in Style! This is a fairly straightforward trip, but you will want an ice axe for the final push to Pan Point. All drivers will need winter tires and to carry chains (even 4wd) and a national park pass. Be prepared for winter weather! I'll have a backup planned in the same area in case the road to Paradise is closed.
