Winter Scramble - North Slide Mountain


Winter Scramble - North Slide Mountain

Originally Bismarck, changed to North Slide due to the delayed opening of Chinook Pass. A great spring-summer trip with ample viewpoints, a pristine alpine lake, and an opportunity to evaluate snow conditions in the surrounding area.
