Which side of airplane to view Mt St Helens?

I know it can vary with weather, wind, etc but typically which would be the best side of the airplane to sit on flight from Denver to Seattle for the best view of Mt St Helens?

I don't recall seeing Mt St Helens on our flight Denver-Seattle, but it would have to be on the left. Flight path was very near Mount Rainier.

I've seen Mt St Helens from a plane but it was flying north to south (not east to west).

When we flew from Denver to Seattle we saw Mt. St. Helens on the left flying in, right flying out. I believe we saw both Ranier and St. Helens on the same side of the plane.

I flew from Seattle to Salt Lake City and saw two mountains on the left. I think it was Rainier and Saint Helens, but I do not remember.

the bottom of the plane gives you a guaranteed best view... hang in there...
