Little Tahoma presented with some fantastic climbing and skiing this morning. Rangers climbed the route from Camp Muir, as opposed to using the more common approach from White River. The route across the upper Cowlitz Glacier and the Ingraham Glacier was fairly straight forward, with only minimal crevasse negotiation. Once on the Whitman Glacier, it is possible to ski up the back side of the mountain to within a few hundred feet of the summit. The Whitman and Frying Pan glaciers still have tons of snow cover and are easy to navigate, so the route from White River should be in good shape as well.
The current conditions make Little T it an awesome ski mountaineering route, but it's just as great on foot too! Come up and experience one of the most epic views of Big Tahoma, you won't be disappointed..
