Paradise snowplay area opens

Mount Rainier National Park officials just announced the snowplay area at Paradise is open for the season.

Enough snow has fallen at Paradise to protect the fragile vegetation there and the groomer has been repaired to make sure the runs are in good shape.

The snowplay area is immediately north of the upper parking lot at Paradise. It is the only place in the park sliding and sledding is permitted. Runs will be supervised by park rangers daily through Jan. 4, and on weekends and holidays from Jan. 9 through March 29. Visitors may use the runs when the area is not staffed, but the runs are not groomed during the week.

For current snowplay status, call the Longmire Museum at 360-569-2211 ext. 3314 from 9 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. daily.
