Humpback Mountain (winter)

Humpback Mountain in winter is an easily-accessible I-90 corridor peak, relatively avalanche safe, with views to the east and north. The upper ridge line is narrow and easy to follow.


The standard route is, as in other seasons, via the northwest ridge. Since the roads are normally not plowed much beyond I-90, the distance and elevation gain are substantially higher than in summer. Eight miles round-trip with over 3,200 ft gain.
