Winter Activities

This pristine land dominated by Mount Rainier is a special place for people who love winter and snow. Snow is king. In fact, in the winter of 1971–72, Mt. Rainier set a world record with 1,122 inches of snowfall. But that doesn’t deter the thousands who come to Paradise Inn and National Park Inn every season to enjoy this winter wonderland.
