During a family day that included Northwest Trek located west of Mount Rainier, and the Crystal Mountain "Mount Rainier Gondola" Tram located east of Mount Rainier, we summited Summit House and Grubstake Peak. Carrying my toddler up Grubstake Peak was interesting, but at least most of the route had no snow on it.
