In the last line of a story I wrote last winter about a couple who survived a deadly storm on Mount Rainier, I shared a quote from Josephine Johnson of Lacey about her boyfriend of eight months.

“He is so amazing,” Johnson said of Jim Dickman, who lives in Vancouver, Wash. “I’m going to marry this man.”

Tomorrow she’ll make good on that promise when the couple plans to wed in Whistler, B.C. “Pique,” a Whistler news magazine, profiled the outdoor-lovers on its website yesterday, Valentine’s Day.

After the wedding the couple plans to celebrate with a bobsled ride at the 2010 Winter Olympic Sliding Centre, Johnson said via Facebook earlier this week.

A storm on Rainier in January 2012 trapped seven people on the mountain. Four died. Johnson and Dickman, both skilled mountaineers, spent two nights in snow caves before finding their way to safety on the third day. The couple still regularly visits Mount Rainier National Park.
