Has anyone climbed Mt. Borah in the winter? Id imagine its just a terrible slog with poor avalanche conditions....but I figured Id feel it out first.

Cheers!

Yes, me and Rob Landis once did a winter ski / hike during a major winter storm. Sketchy avalanche conditions, glazed rock, high winds and driving wet snow. We skied to just below Chicken Ridge, then hiked in our tele boots. I recall the word that summed up the trip was "Himalayan". We both got frost nip on our ears despite multiple layers.Good fun if you're into that kind of thing! The trip home on gnarly roads was almost as much of an epic as the hike! dave bingham
