If you still want to play in the snow, this will be the last official weekend for the snow play area at Paradise. Mount Rainier National Park Acting Superintendent Randy King said the area will be staffed and groomed through Sunday.

After that date, the snow play area will remain open until conditions make sledding unsafe or decreasing snow depth would allow play in that area to impact the fragile meadow vegetation beneath the runs.

The ranger-led snow shoe walks will also end on Sunday.

The Henry M. Jackson Memorial Visitor Center is open weekends only, 10
a.m. to 5 p.m. until May 8 when it will begin seven-day-a-week operations.
