Mt Rainier - Winter Expedition

Emmons/Winthrop Glacier Route






May - July




Mt Rainier - Winter Expedition
emmons/Winthrop Glacier Route 

8 Days @ £3750pp ( £200pp Deposit)

Known as Tahoma — ​“The Big White One” — Mount Rainier is a source for climbers of all lev­els who wish to expe­ri­ence high­er alti­tude moun­taineer­ing, train for big­ger ascents abroad, or sim­ply stand on the sum­mit of Wash­ing­ton State’s most promi­nent icon overlooking the bright lights of Seattle in the distance.  At 14,410 feet / 4392 meters, Mount Rainier is the high­est peak in the Cas­cade Range and the most heav­i­ly glaciat­ed. Rainier has big glac­i­ers, plenty of ele­va­tion gain, and a just reward for summiting. 

As an active Volcano, Mount Rainier has not produced a significant eruption in the past 500 years, it is potentially the most dangerous volcano in the Cascade Range because of its great height, frequent earthquakes, active hydrothermal system, and extensive glacier mantle. Mount Rainier has 25 major glaciers containing more than five times as much snow and ice as all the other Cascade volcanoes combined. If only a small part of this ice were melted by volcanic activity, it would yield enough water to trigger enormous lahars (debris flows and mudflows that originate on a volcano). Mount Rainier's potential for generating destructive mudflows is enhanced by its great height above surrounding valleys. It's some challenge for sure!

Exped Day 1

We meet at 7 am for a manda­to­ry ori­en­ta­tion meet­ing and equip­ment check. The dri­ve from Seat­tle to the trail­head at White Riv­er Camp­ground (4,350 ft / 1326 m) is approx­i­mate­ly 3 hours. After final­iz­ing our per­mit­ting with Mt. Rainier Nation­al Park and secur­ing your annu­al climb­ing pass­es ($30/​pp), we’ll hit the trail — this is a mel­low 3 mile / 4.8 kilo­me­ter hike and the short­er day allows time to begin some skills review or just relax a bit. We’ll camp at the Glac­i­er Basin group site at 5,900 feet / 17998 meters.
