MT RAINIER pretty much makes it's own weather, and because it stands in the path of prevailing moisture laden marine winds, its southern slopes get some world breaking snow fall, and Paradise Inn (a three story lodge) is frequently buried to the tops of its chimneys in snow. Due to the heavy snowfall on the slopes of Mt Rainier(mentioned above), the mountain sports 26 major glaciers.

The below information gives you current weather conditions at the 12,600 Ft level on the mountain.

"Come now, let us reason together," says the Lord. "Though your sins are like scarlet, they shall be as white as snow; though they are red as crimson, they shall be like wool."
