This past Thursday (9/3/15), Jeff Rich, Chris Farias, Steph & Zack Jessel, and Tara & Carl Simpson headed for Mt. Rainier’s Paradise parking lot to make the long slog up to Camp Muir, where they found this season’s first fresh SNOW! It paid off, as you will see in the video below, finding the dirty suncups blanketed with a layer of white magic! Glad to see some freshies hitting the Cascades early this month, as last month’s ski day was very grim. Some of our higher ski areas have received a little dusting as well, during this recent storm, making me think I should load up for a Labor Day ski day on Rainier too! Remember, PNW skiers, we don’t want a repeat of last year, so think SNOW not Super Bowl show. 😉
Below is Carl Simpson’s edit of Thursday along with some clips of his solo ski yesterday. Enjoy the first snow vid of the new season!
