A sense of remoteness, 2,000-foot runs, and better-than-average weather characterize the Summerland tour. Ice axes and crampons are suggested for this tour. For all tours in Mount Rainier National Park, call (360)569-2211 for weather and road information. Permit and fee requirements include a vehicle/tourist entry fee, backcountry permit/campsite reservations for overnight stays, and summit fees for skiing above stated elevations. The Code of Federal Regulations forbids solo (unroped) travel on glaciers. Difficulties: High avalanche potential; glacier travel above Summerland; routefinding required; permit / fee area.
