Ever wonder what it takes to climb a mountain like Mt. Rainier? This trip will introduce you to the skills and techniques it takes to climb on steep snow and on glaciers. We will spend time learning how to use an ice axe and how to self arrest. We will also 'rope up' as if we are traveling on a glacier. We will be on the snow slopes of the ski area at Snoqualmie Pass.
