February Guiding, and March Ski Mountaineering Stoke…


During February and the first part of March SMG has been busy with guiding and plenty of skiing on our own time.  That’s right, we not only ski for work, but take any opportunity possible on our free time as well.  We’ve guided a couple day tours based out of the Sawtooth Hotel, Stanley and few guided yurt trips.  Tad Jones, an SMG regular, put together this video of his recent yurt trip which Hatch guided for the first 2 days:

Also, we’ve started getting psyched for our ski mountaineering programs.  In other words we went on another ski bender to nab as many lines as we could in preparation.  We have a few custom trips scheduled for March & early April, then our standard Ski Mt. Camps mid-late April.

    Do we have to wait until July for the snow to be gone? When can you hike the trails without skis or snowshoes? It has been so warm here in Richland, WA, I thought I would visit the sawtooths in April. Now I know that is a bad idea.

      By June the lower-mid elevations open up, and by early July, with the exception of some passes, everything should be OK for hiking. April is actually one of the best months for skiing here!
