June 29-30, Rainier Emmons Route, Summit Ski
« on: 07/05/13, 10:31 AM »

On June 29-30, our group of 5 headed up and skied from the summit via the Emmons Glacier. Conditions were warm with ice at the top. Beautiful few days with pretty calm winds.

I agree with Zap - your full trip report was a great read!  And you have some beautiful pictures of the sunrise; wow.  Summiting Rainier is currently so far out of my skill/fitness level that it hasn't really made it onto my "must-ski" list yet, but your trip report is the first time when I've really felt a true hankering to get up onto it.  Thanks for sharing.

Wow - thanks everyone for the kind words! Really flattered you took the time to read my write-up. I generally post blogs about trips but never thought to post them here before. I will definitely keep sharing in the future.
