Bootpacking to the summit

A gorgeous day in Bozeman, Montana during a period in which the avalanche report reads like this…

“The snow keeps piling up in the northern ranges and… In the past 48 hours 7 inches of new snow has fallen… This gradual process of adding a few inches here and a few inches there is exactly the kind of loading the snowpack enjoys.

…calls for a gathering of friends to grab their skis and splitboards to enjoy the freedom of the hills. For a select few it also calls for us to throw a couple cheeseburgers into our food sacks for consumption atop our destination peak.

Cheeseburger consumers this time around were samh and wotboy (known in other posts as MikeMike). Dr. Liz, Roderigo, and Melanie were also along for the skiing but did not have cheeseburgers in hand on this go – perhaps next time though!

    “Vertical ascent: 4626 ft

    Vertical descent: 4623 ft”

    but where did those 3 feet go?
