Unique mountain via a truly great route! I really couldn’t have asked for a better day. I did happen upon an older couple from New Hampshire (according to the summit register). We mutually respected each other’s silence. I eventually lost tack of them and I was the only one around. The summit plateau was a neat place to be with interesting rock formations rising up all around. On the descent I found myself thinking some really deep thoughts. The Wigwam Trail was a nice way to end the loop, a really pleasant surprise.

I finally got around to going up Bison after seeing so many people rave about it. It lived up to every expectation I had and then some. Incredible hike. We never saw another person the entire day.



Unfortunately we weren't clear on the exact location of the true summit and didn't find it. I think I know where it is now so I'll just have to go back.

Made the climb yesterday with my wife. What an awesome winter climb. The trail was covered with 3-5 inches of snow most of the way to Bison Pass. From Bison Pass to the Arm it was over knee deep even with snowshoes on. Weather was great and summit views even better.

I think I have climbed Bison Peak 6 times now. First on May 6, 2001, again on December 26, 2001, again on October 6, 2002, again on March 12, 2003, again on May 5, 2003, and lastly on May 15, 2005. I am pretty familiar with Bison. It may be one of my favorite winter hikes.

A very nice hike. Wish I could remember more of it - I did the hike a day after getting food poisoning or the stomach flu or something. The hike is somewhat of a blur to me right now. I do remember some really cool rock formations at the top. Very nice day.

Bison Peak was my first hike of the 2003 season. I will remember this one. Once on the summit plateau things really open up and there just is not enough time to soak it all in. I will return, probably next winter. A perfect intro peak to the LCW.

Wow! What sights up there. I had a pretty good idea of what to expect but was still blown away. Super big thanks to Kane for putting up the Bison Peak page!



Wow! Another nice trip. Even more sights this time since a trip to the northern plateau was undertaken. Had some outstanding company once again. Looking forward to heading back.
