Mountain Report

Tips Up (12/10/18 @ 9:30 a.m.) IT’S SNOWING!!! We picked up 3″ overnight in addition to the 4″ we received during the day for a total accumulation of 7″!  We’re expecting snow to taper off today with a bigger storm arriving Tuesday. We are open daily with the Discovery, Chinook Express, Quicksilver, Mt. Rainier Gondola and Green Valley Express lifts.  We will open more lifts and terrain as conditions allow so stay tuned for updates. 

Coverage is still thin in Green Valley so we suggest bringing your rock skis/boards if you plan to head up top. There isn’t enough snow to ski/ride from Green Valley to the base so when you’re ready to head back down you’ll need to walk up the ridge and download on the gondola. The last time you can upload the gondola with skis or a snowboard is 3:00 p.m. and the last download is 4:00 p.m. There will be no grooming in Green Valley until we receive more snow, however the lower slopes are groomed nightly. 

Save up to 30% on lift tickets this winter by purchasing in advance online!  The earlier you buy, the more you save so scoop up the best deals before they’re gone.

The Mt. Rainier Gondola is open for scenic rides, and the Summit House Restaurant opens for lunch at 10:30 a.m daily.  Come take in the beautiful views and join us at Washington’s highest elevation restaurant.
