Hike, Drive, & Chairlift  Sucess!

I've been to the top about a Brazillion times. Actually hiked it a few times with my ski gear too. After the lifts close we hiked straight up to the summit under Chair 1 hauling our skis and post holing in the soft spring snow.

Good Training  Sucess!

I have done this mountain several time both winter and summer months. Its so close to home I love to use it as a training ground for conditioning

Great Training  Sucess!

The first time I climbed Mount Spokane was 2002, But since than I have used it as my training mountain for my Idaho trips. I climb it at lest once a month sometimes more. I have climbed in every month and in all kinds of weather conditions. There is lots of access point to keep it from getting to borring.

Quite a few times  Sucess!

Rode my mountain bike up to the top once from the lodge area, also driven it a few times, and rode down trails and fire roads during a race.

Good for training  Sucess!

Discounting all the times I've driven to the top & skiied there over the decades, I've also hiked cross-country to the summit for training, & to teach friends snow skills.

The weirdest time was ~March 1995, suddenly coming upon scraps of metal, wiring, pilot logs, medical debris & other detrious -- then realizing we had stumbled onto the site where a poor man had crashed into the mountain during a fierce snowstorm the precious October. The crash site had long been cleaned up...but items, including his keys, were still melting out.

Drive Up  Sucess!

I tagged this drive up on the same day as Abercrombie and 2 CoHP's in Idaho. Great views. A little hazy though.

Spokane  Sucess!

Well, I'm a peak whore so I'm adding it anyway even though I drove the thing.

To make up for that sin, I offer the following trivia question: Which 4 summits in WA are COHPs, COGPPs, P2000 and former (and current actually) fire lookout sites?

South side  Sucess!

Picked a spot just inside the State Park boundary to stretch the effort out and got in some good conditioning.

3 Times  Sucess!

Did 3 winter, night ascents on snowshoes via the southwest side. Good exersize with nice views of Spokane below. Twice with Mishell. More of a hill than a mountain.

Up the ski hill  Sucess!

This was my tenth overall county highpoint in my new pursuit and probably the one where I didn't expect that I'd have to hike to get it. It was a 1600 foot hike up the ski hill and me wishing I'd brought my skiis so I could ski down. Actually a fun hike and a good conditioner. Mt. Spokane is a local treasure.
