Sledding in Paradise on Mount Rainier

traveltoparks ourbestplaces

For the first time since early 2014, the snowplay slope at Mount Rainier National Park is open! After a New Year’s snow dump, there are now over 120 inches of snow on the flanks of The Mountain (Washington’s highest) at Paradise.

Check @MountRainierNPS where the park tweets slope and road conditions and requirements.

If you can’t get there, live vicariously though the park’s webcams.
