National Geographic : 1960 Apr
Exploding snow pursues a skier leaping a hummock in Mount Rainier National Park. Rainier's summit bulks at lower right. Riders explore Rainier's flanks, where summer sun meets winter snow. St. Helens' volcanic cone rears in the distance. Sunset tints curving dunes of snow at Paradise Inn. As much as 83 feet of snow has fallen in a single winter. Here 15-foot drifts reach the windows on the second floor.
