Saturday, February 14 - Black Mountain 8330'.  8 miles round trip, 3000' vertical.  classs 2.  This is the Black Mountain some distance SE of Lincoln along the Continental Divide, the highest peak in this area with over 2,500' of prominence. It's looking like a nice Saturday coming up so I thought it'd be good to go this way. We'll come in from the S up the Three-Mile Road to around "Blackfoot City" (old mining site) and then make our way up the south ridge to the top. Very moderate slopes. The top is wooded but with about 3-4 feet of snowpack expected up there we should be able to see above the trees, and it'll be an interesting perspective. Send me an email if you're interested!.  Here's the proposed route: http://www.hillmap.com/m/ag1zfmhpbGxtYXAtaGRychULEghTYXZlZE…

April ??  - Trapper Peak 10,157'.  Trapper Peak is the highest peak in the Bitterroots.  Depending on how far up the road we can drive, it is 3500' to 5000' vertical and 9 to 12 miles round trip.  There will be deep snow most of the way----it might or might not be consolidated enough to hike up without skis or snowshoes.
