June 13, 2015, Mt. Rainier, Muir & Nisqually chute
« on: 06/14/15, 01:42 PM »

Walked in tennies to bottom of pan face, walked in ski boots to nearly pebble creek, and then skinned with only a short carry.  Zach went to camp muir, I rested at about 9600.  The upper snowfield was pretty cupped and rutted.  But nisqually chute was much smoother and skied nicely - far exceeding expectations.  There was a short carry at the bottom of the chute and then out the sticky flats to the usual climb-out point below glacier vista.  So we were still able to get in about 4000 feet vertical of skiing, more than half of it very enjoyable.
