I've heard that about Montana. A sled assist is very helpful. We do have a lot of great pass access here, but there are plenty of slogs too. Gore range stuff, fourteeners and most peaks over 13 require typically something like a 5-7 mile approach. Some even more, but I tend to start thinking I want a sled for those...

Yep, if you're talking 3 mile flat slogs pretty much everywhere you go, I'd definitely go the cheap sled route. Good call.

If you are back on these roads, carry a chain saw and plenty of fuel. Fallen trees from these intense winds often block these roads then heavy snow can follow.

I had to cut 3 fallen lodgepoles from the road to Mt. Adams this summer after a wind storm!
ya don't want to be in the trees when the wind blows....which reminds me...Huddie

Black girl, black Girl, dont lie to me
Tell me where did you sleep last night?
In the pines, In the pines, Where the sun never shine
I shivered the whole night through.

Black girl, black girl, where will you go
Im going where the cold wind blows
In the pines, In the pines, Where the sun never shine
I will shiver the whole night through.

Black girl, black Girl, dont lie to me
Tell me where did you sleep last night?
In the pines, In the pines, Where the sun never shine
I shivered the whole night through.

My Husband was a Railroad man
Killed a mile and a half from here
His head, was found, In a drivers wheel
And his body hasn't never been found.

Black girl, black girl, where will you go
Im going where the cold wind blows
You called me weak, and you called me the most
You called rita, bring me back home.
