It was late September and we needed to ski. Our last ski was Dome Peak but we had no intention of carrying our skis 17 miles to ski a measly 1 mile. We decided to be lazy and head to Rainier.

It turned out to be a decent ski. New snow helped fill in the suncups and cover the dirt. Most of it melted the following week but we knew it would be back. I returned 2 weeks later to make sure.
