Grand Teton this weekend?

The weather in Colorado looks pretty iffy this weekend, but I noticed that it is predicted to be perfect in the Tetons with sunny skies. It's short notice, but does anyone want a go at the Grand Teton?

Taking the family hiking

My son is playing in a hockey tournament in Las Vegas in early July (yeah I know, we're crazy) and on our way home (Manitoba) we are thinking of camping in the Grand Teton and Yellowstone National Parks and would like to do some hiking.

Highest Class 1 in Idaho??

I love how there aren't trails on any ID peaks. I had a thought the other day that the tallest Class 1 ascent in the state I could think of is Sun Valley's Bald Mountain, which is ranked #1082 on LoJ. Can anyone think of a higher one?

Crazy Mountains Access

Looking to do some ski mountaineering in the Crazies this weekend. Does anybody know if Big Timber Canyon Rd to Half Moon Campground is snow free/accessible yet? Any condition updates on the area at all would be rad!

Do you recognize these mountains?

Taken on a flight from Denver to Seattle on March 25th. I was thinking I was over Idaho and that it might be near Borah Peak but not familiar enough with the area to be sure. The peak left of center looks distinctive enough that I thought someone might recognize it. View is looking south.
Any thoughts?

Total Eclipse 2017


Despite living in the UK I'm thinking of coming over for the Total Eclipse in August 2017 - as its the only one in the next 10+ years that will be in a sensible place to get to!

Its on a Monday in the morning and I'd love to be high up for it. Something like Mount Borah in Idaho would be fantastic. My main concern is that the trailhead will be mobbed with ...
