The article says that the fees need to be increased to train the rangers and fund the climbing program. I'm all for them increasing rates to actually make the program pay for itself, but I also think that with the local climbing community they shouldn't have any trouble finding potential rangers that are already adequately trained for the job. They also mention that the mountain has had one of its safest stretches ever, making me think they don't need additional training or rangers.

So in short expect to pay up to $50 to climb Rainier next year....oh yeah and $500 for Denali.

i lost the game, thanks craig.
All these methods for fixing budgets encourages pirating... which is not what they should be doing. $500 is enough for 1 months rent... so maybe only people who normally have enough money to rent can easily consider that expenditure. Maybe if they actually refused to fly crazy climber who demand helicopter escape off the mountain 'just because', they could save $.

Less rangers = better. If someone needs a ranger up there, they probably shouldn't be up there anyway.

Maybe make the fees proportional to the traffic on the route. Say $100 for the DC, and $1 for Willis Wall?
