Mount Rainier National Park offers an outstanding variety of leisure and outdoor activities to enjoy throughout the year, ranging from scenic drives, bird, and wildlife watching, mountain climbing, mountain biking, and hiking to cross-country skiing, snowboarding, snow tubing, and guided snow walks.
Summers boast beautiful weather and cloudless skies that are perfect for hiking, mountain biking, geocaching, climbing, bird and wildlife watching, as well as fishing, camping and taking long, scenic drives through the park. Mount Rainier National Park is also home to several mountain climbing schools that provide mountain climbing instruction by highly trained professional mountain climbers.
Winters bring plenty of white, powder-soft snow, which draws crowds to enjoy skiing, snowboarding, snow tubing, cross-country skiing, guided snow walks and wildlife watching.
The Paradise Inn runs a range of eco-friendly programs, such as in-room recycling, towel and linen programs, ceramic coffee mugs and nature-inspired Sister Sky's Sweet Grass room amenities in every bathroom.
