Mount Rainier Proposes to Double Mountaineering Fee

The (American Alpine Club) AAC learned last Thursday that Mount Rainier planned to announce a review of their mountaineering special use fee, with the preferred alternative being a doubling of the fee to $30 per person. The $15 per person fee has not been altered since it was imposed in 1995, and the four alternatives proposed range from no change to increasing the fee to a total of $40 per climbing permit. The various alternatives contain commensurate increases in service levels to climbers.

The Park Service’s document outlining the problem and the need for expanded fees can be found on the Mount Rainier website at http://www.nps.gov/mora/climb/costrecovery.htm. Comments on the proposed fee change will be accepted until Wednesday, January 22, 2003, and can be submitted by email to mailto:mora_climbing_fees@nps.gov or may be sent by postal mail to:

Chief Ranger Jill Hawk
Mount Rainier National Park
Star Route
Tahoma Woods WA 98304-9751

Three public meetings have been scheduled to discuss the proposal:

December 9, 6:30-9 p.m., Doubletree Hotel-Yakima Valley, 1507 North First St., Yakima

December 11, 6:30-9 p.m., Washington State History Museum, 1911 Pacific Ave., Tacoma

December 17, 6:30-9 p.m., The Mountaineers Clubhouse, 300 Third Ave, West, Seattle.
