The Nisqually Ice Cliff on Mount Rainier has only been skied by one or possibly two parties in the past. This ski line is very rare because during most years there is not enough snow to bridge a large wall of rock and ice. Rumor has it that the line was first skied in the 1980's, but we know for sure it was skied roughly a month ago. Regardless of whether we were the 2nd or the 3rd party to ski the Nisqually Ice Cliff it was great to get such a rare opportunity.
