Didn't see the cat track so went straight up through the bushes... awesome view but smokey.
Snowshoed from the parking area up the switchbacks, and then from the top of the ski lift we hiked the ridge to the saddle, and then the summit. Windy, cold, amazing view.
Nice hike with some good vertical elevation gain - was more of a workout than I though it would be. Nice views from the top.
Hiked up the ski hill, took a right to the end of the groomed area and started up through the path of least resistance. Used GPS to ensure I came back down at the same spot.
From the parking area at the Pebble Creek ski area we followed the service roads up to the top of the higher chair lift. From there it was cross country to Skyline Peak and then along a nice mellow ridge onto Bonneville Peak. This was Idaho CoHP #8.
This had some of the best views of Idaho,Utah, Montana and Wyoming I have seen. We snowshoed from the upper parking lot in single digit temps.This may be my new winter training hill. 2600 vertical gain and only 1:15 from Idaho Falls.
A nice hike on a very hot day. We had just reached the summit when it started thundering and lightning, a few more minutes at the cairn and then we beat feat back down the scree.
why climb from the bottom of the hill when the chair lift is running? I'll have to try it again after Pebble closes for the season. The snow sucked though! Wind blown and crusty.
Hiked up the mtn on a nice summer day!! and came down under the ski lift. Great views!!!
This is one of my local "training hills" to get some vert in early season. Seems like i do it every other year, trading it with Scout Mountain, sometimes both. I've done them both numerous times. The veg can get pretty thick at the point you leave the cat track and start bushwacking. Generally i do this earlier season so that it's not an issue.
Hiked up the Pebble Creek slopes (the ski area was closed for the day). Would be a very quick trip if you took the lift up. Undoubtably, more people go up here in the winter than summer. There was a pretty decent path in the snow all the way to the summit. Good views all around
It was raining in the morning and was nice and sunny by the afternoon. There was a lot snow on the east side of the mountain but much less than normal. I could see the Tetons and Wind River Range from the summit.
I suppose I could have waited another month and ridden the lift to the top, but I enjoyed the trudge up the slopes and snow covered summit on this cold November day.
Nice hike on a beautiful day.
Amazingly enough, I climbed to the peak in a snow storm on an August day. Everything I had on was soaked by the time I got back to my vehicle. The sun came out about the time I was leaving but now that I have some friends who live at the base of this peak, I will return to climb it in good weather.
