Leaders sought for snowy (hopefully) treks!

Posted on Monday, November 16th, 2015 by »

Winter is coming. Admittedly, somewhat slowly. Still, it’s time to plan those expeditions into our winter wonderland backcountry (or around the edges, for that matter.) We have a couple of classics that have been submitted already, but we have plenty of days left to fill. So, get your snow dance on and dream up a big winter adventure to take your Friends on. Go to https://www.scotchmanpeaks.org/hiking/leading-hikes/ and fill out the hike suggestion form!

Montana Wilderness Association wants to help spread the word, too, and their deadline is next Wednesday, November 25th. Not a deal killer if you miss it, but you can greatly expand your potential hike list if you let MWA help.

Now is the time!
