This past Saturday (5/2/15) Jeff Rich, Carl Simpson, Andy Traslin, and Rowen Stewart all set out for Mt. Rainier’s Little Tahoma (via the Sunrise entrance). As you will see in the video, Carl and Jeff hit it perfectly, once again! Below are a few words from Jeff along with his sweet edit of the day.
Andy Traslin and I had been discussing skiing Rainier as soon as we had warm enough temps and soft conditions. With little in the way of high condition reports, I held off. A young ambitious whipper snapper split boarder, that goes by the name of Rowan Stewart, contacted me about doing a traverse from Paradise- Little Tahoma- and exiting via the Fryingpan. Some how I was able to convince the talented little knuckle dragger into just going up the Fryingpan and back out the same entrance. With an opportunity to scout conditions, it was time to call Traslin… and of course my Right Hand Man, Carl Simpson, who is always down to slay and lives 30 minutes from our destination of play. Here is the short vid of what We found.
