Mt. Rainier climbing information is found now at the Guide House at Paradise and at least in 2009 was staffed seven days a week. From here many of the climbing patrols originate and rescues are mounted since almost 80% of climbing use on Mt. Rainier begins at Paradise. Interesting information on the 2009 climbing season including routes used, accidents and rescues can be found in a report here.
Combined with the mist and newer lodge building here I couldn't resist taking pictures of this historic still actively used lodge.
