Last weekend for Paradise snow play area

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.

    Too bad, school is out April 4-10 (spring break) and we know many who were planning to take their kids sledding. Forecast is for a couple of feet or more of snow early this week and that should make the snowplay area not too nice for the weekend (especially if people are allowed to boot, snowshoe, and ski all over it). I also notice the park people are starting to scrape the snow off Paradise Valley Road–I hope they don’t go too fast and leave the road suitable for skiing and snowshoeing for a while.
