I was hoping to make the ascent to the the summit of Mt Rainier wa, this year. I was hoping to be able to ski down from the summit (about 10,000 verticle of skiing from a 14,400 foot peak) but was wondering where I could find some info for guides or map, when to make the ascent. I have been able to find blogs about peoples trips but they all seemed to be ex guides. Is there an official guided route or groupes? If anyone has made the ascent and skiied down or has any info I would be very greatful!
