Anyone know where to find info on routes and conditions for alpine ice/mixed routes in the Sawtooths or nearby area? Got any recommendations? Considering potential of early spring/late winter trips. Would also be interested in skimo beta.

Idaho: a climbing guide, by Tom Lopez (and companion website

Check out the Idaho Outdoors Forum, consider posting there, and go to it's associated website, Idaho Summits (link at the top of the forum page).

Anything, and I do mean anything, in central to south Idaho this year will be entirely dependant on the record snowpack. It is still coming, too. Freakin' snowed in Boise today! Sheesh.

Off the top of my head:

North Face of Tohobit Peak

Chockstone Couloir on Grand Mogul

Ski descent of McGown Couloir

Petzoldt Couloir on Heyburn Peak

Ski descent of Super Gully on Lost River Peak(Lost River Range)

Guideline #1: Don't be a jerk.
