August 18, 2010, Mt. Rainier, Another Perfect Day
« on: 08/20/10, 09:24 AM »

August 18th brought us back up to the Paradise Glacier 5 days after our Friday the 13th “Perfect Day” trip report.

JD Smith and myself left Snoqualmie Pass just before 7AM to start our quest for “Another Perfect Day” on Mt. Rainier. A few hours later we were at the Paradise parking lot w/ the temps just right. Boots and skis on packs and headed for the Golden Gate trail opting to go straight for the snow to shed the skis and boots a lot sooner than the Pebble Creek route the week before. 5 days prior to this trip we squeeze around 3,000′ total on our skis by skiing all the way to the Skyline/Paradise trail junction, but w/ the snow having melted out quite a bit we would only yield around 2,000′ of excellent skiing. Apx 2 miles later it was skins on for a 2,500′ skin up to Anvil Rock.

Still should be able to get the full ski for another couple weeks +or- a few days before it becomes the ever so famous “900′ Paradise Patch” the NW skiers visit to keep Cascade carving alive all year long.
