Skiing the Cascade Volcanoes on Mount Rainier
I grew up on the back hills along the AT, so I learned to ski in the back country and prefer it over commercial slopes. I've backhilled from VT, Maine, CO, PA, CA and Kyrgystan.
Yes, I've done some ice climbing but would like to improve upon my skills.
Climbing 6,000 ft on Mauna Kea to do a 5 minutes ski run. At least I can say I skied Hawaii!
I love mountaineering & backcountry skiing!
