Thank you to Nordic Patrol

The season for Patrol at Mt Rainier National Park has come to a close. A special thank you to Jon Epstein for coordinating the Patrol this season and working with the Park Rangers to implement some new procedures.  And many thanks to the 37 members who patrolled, assisted visitors with directions, helped with rescue of an injured boy, assisted in a search mission, and put up with lots of skiing in the rain.

Check out this fantastic and comprehensive video clip by Denis DuBois from a recent patrol weekend!


    April 16, Thursday 6 pm - Spring Potluck!  We'll be back at the Mount Baker Community Club. Bring food to share, gear to sell, and clothing to donate.  Come early if you can help set up.


    The Washington Ski Touring Club is a Seattle-based, recreation-oriented club of about 360 members who organize nordic classic, skate, telemark,and backcountry touring ski trips.  We also have a monthly meeting with interesting programs on equipment, tours, weather, ski destinations, etc. (October to May).


    We love to ski and encourage you to join us!  Our monthly meetings and potluck events are open to all. However, much of our website such as Multi-Day Trips, Discussion Forums, Nordic Patrol, and Weekend Weather forecasts are available only to Members.
