The Rocky Mountaineers-Classic Trip Series-Trapper PeakAs the April 2007 installment of the Rocky Mountaineers Classic Series Trips, Alden Wright led a ski trip up the normal route of Trapper Peak. We met at 6:35am in the K-mart parking lot and headed down the ‘root. Ron Pierson, Alden and I arrived at the turn off for the Trapper Peak trailhead and found that we were following Brett Doucett up the mountain on our way to the trailhead (a bit of foreshadowing for the coming climb). We parked at the second crossing of Troy Creek (5500’) and headed up with our skies on our backs. It had been cold enough the night before to allow us to hike on top of the snow to approximately 8000’ before we donned our skies.
We made the summit by 2pm and were joined by two others (that, as it turns out, participated in Alden’s trip last year!)
Back at the truck at about 6pm, hungry and tired, we thanked Alden for picking a perfect weather window for leading a great trip. ;)
