Snowbank Mountain

Elevation: 8,340 ft
Prominence: 3,120

Climbing and access information for this peak is on Page 106 of the book.


The highest point in the West Mountains has a radar dome on its West Summit and additional electronics installations on its East Summit. It is difficult to tell that the East Summit is the high point. Both summits are reached by FSR-446 that is usually open to the public from June 1st through the end of October [(A)(4) on Page 108]. The road is usually in good enough condition for passenger cars to travel to the West Summit. Snowbank Mountain has 3,120 feet of prominence and is well worth a visit for its massive views and to access nearby summits such as Collier Peak and Wilson Peak. USGS Alpha
