Snow Rovers patrol a winter Paradise

Lots of transformations happen at Mount Rainier National Park from summer to winter. One of those metamorphoses is that our summer Meadow Rovers become winter Snow Rovers. Shedding their hiking boots and acquiring snowshoes or skis, these volunteers migrate along the popular snow routes around Longmire and Paradise. Snow Rovers travel from visitor to visitor along these routes, providing trail condition and safety information and helping visitors have a memorable experience at the park.

Have you encountered any of our Snow Rovers out in the snowy wild?
