Trip Report    

Winter Scramble - Pratt Mountain (winter)

A quick trip up Pratt Mountain in surprisingly good weather.

  • Road suitable for all vehicles
  • I-90 was clear; once we exited the freeway at Exit 47 there was snow on the road but it was easily navigable by 2wd cars. 

Not a lot to say that wasn't already shared in previous trip reports, other than that the forecast showed 60-70% chance of precip and we had mostly clear skies from start to finish. I hope that this encourages fellow scramblers to stay on trips and not cancel last minute when the weather is questionable; it can still be a blast!!!

Car to car in 6 hours, 40 min with a long break at the summit. 11.4 miles, 3185' elevation gain. If anyone is interested in my gps track, feel free to email me at sbuxbarista@yahoo.com.

Used snowshoes, microspikes, and poles. We stayed either in trees or on the ridge line and did not observe any avalanche concerns. We broke a nice trail that a few people followed. As we descended and passed them, they asked where our path went... I guess they were trying to make it to the lake. They got a surprise summit in instead.
