Avalanche Peak

Elevation: 9,433 ft

Climbing and access information for this peak is on Page 234 of the book.


This peak, along with The Cross, gets a lot of ski ascents due to its close proximity to Galena Summit and ID-75.  Avalanche danger awareness and avoidance is a prerequisite to attempting a winter ascent of Avalanche Peak. Skiers have been caught by avalanches on this peak. The peak’s summit is also a nice summer hike. USGS Horton Peak
