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?

Hi,

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 ...

State Highpoint #49 - Had only this and Alaska to go.

Granite Peak Attempt - we made the best of a tough situation.

Trail running/climbing Big Sky

If anyone here likes really technical trail running that combines lots of vert and an 11k Peak, I just ran The Rut 28k at Big Sky. Highly recommend it. Really well put together, brutal terrain, and great location. 7800 vert over the 17 mile course.

Sawtooths? Glacier?

Hi everyone. I've edited this to now include Glacier as a possibility, due to the fire near the Sawtooths. Again, I appreciate the comments and advice.

Hoping some of you Sawtooth vets with experience might be able to answer a few questions for me! Sent out a couple of pm's, but, haven't heard back from anyone yet, so, thought I'd try here.

Possible upcoming trip with my son, who lives in Missoula, to the Sawtooths ...
