Good news for the fans of the snowplay area at Paradise. Conditions are good enough that the sledding area should open as planned on Saturday.

“Yesterday we measured about 7 feet of snow at Paradise,” said Mount Rainier National Park district ranger Uwe Nehring.

Park officials like to have at least 5 feet of snow on the ground to protect the small trees, brushes and sensitive plants in the area.

“The Piston Bully groomer will start prepping the snowplay runs on Friday and Saturday morning. We should be ready,” Nehring said.

This is the only location in the park where sledding is allowed.

Here is a link to a story about the snowplay area that ran in Sunday’s Adventure section.
