Just had to sign the log for posterity lol.
It's great training to hike up and ski down if you're trying to stay in shape over the winter!

Fall 2009

I've climbed this one several times, at all times of the year, but the first one was right after moving to Montana in 2009. I didn't really know the Danny On was there, so I went up what ended up being the Big Ravine. So nice to live in a town with a mountain this close!

We were going to hike to Sperry Chalet in GNP, but it was raining too hard in the park, so we sought higher elevation where it might be snowing and decided on Big Mountain. Had snowshoes strapped to our packs the whole way up, but never used them in the well-packed snow. The summit lodge was so packed, there wasn't a table available.

Not much fun but better than not getting out at all. Hiked with The Boys.

Stayed at the Grouse Mountain Lodge in Whitefish. Borrowed bikes from the hotel and rode to the base of the ski resort. Hiked to the top, passed a bit of a snowfield. Really nice, fairly easy hike. Saw some crazy downhill mountain bikers! Took probably 4-5 hours to get to the top including the bike ride and then we took the gondola down and rode our bikes down. Took less than 20 minutes! What a great day! Loved my first trip to MT! :)

PS the gondola isn't free anymore, it's $5 one way

Summitted this mountain as a back-up after being weathered out of a Logan Pass climb. The summit was populated with assorted winos, ski bums and mountain bikers. If you're looking for solitude...this one isn't for you. My most un-favorite summit to date. Climbed with Cougar14, Kitty, & Tater. Escaped as quickly as possible back down the mountain on the free chair lift.

Nice easy hike. HUGE amounts of people at the summit and some parts of the trail. The most crowded summit I have ever been on.
