Rainier’s road to Paradise reopens, traction tires advised

After closing twice during the past week - once because of flooding and once because of heavy snow - the road to Paradise at Mount Rainier National Park reopened Sunday morning, park officials announced via Twitter.

Traction tires are advised.

The road closed above Longmire on Saturday because of snow. The road was closed at the park’s Nisqually entrance on Nov. 25 because of flooding.
