June 26, 2016 Mt Rainier Inter Glacier-Steamboat
« on: 06/30/16, 04:41 PM »

Another great day on Inter Glacier-Mt Rainier.
We started at 8:00 AM on white river campground, put skis on a little after Glacier Basin Camp.
We went up to Steamboat Prow and enjoyed beautiful views on Emmons Glacier.
No cracks, no crevasses opened yet.
We met a group of climbers Rangers on their way down from Rainier. They turned around at 12.6k due to snow instability.
We also met a party of 5 who submitted at 9AM. They reported a pretty straight forward route up to the summit.
Skiing down was really nice on the first 1000 ft, then more sticky and really heavy at the end (I guess we should have ski down earlier...).
More details in the following video :

Nice video.  Note that you're stepping across the Inter Fork of the White River, probably ill-advised and/or dangerous on the main fork out of the Emmons.

Nice - like the map track!  Helpful for those of us who are not familiar with all the routes at MORA.
