Michael Hoyt is a Corvallis based mountaineer and is partially responsible for starting the website SummitPost and is still a major contributor. He has also recently published the book Hikes and Climbs to Bitterroot Mountain Summits a beautiful 384-page book, written specifically for beginning and intermediate hikers and climbers, brings the world of guidebooks into the new century with more than 350 full-color photographs.

The aim, says the Corvallis author, “is to inspire more people to go off-trail and visit the summits of the Bitterroot Mountains and gain a better appreciation of these glorious peaks.”

Research for the book required several climbing seasons, one of which included more than 600 miles of hiking and climbing. The book covers mountains in the portion of the Bitterroot Range along the west side of Montana’s fabled Bitterroot Valley, one of the most popular hiking and climbing destinations in the American West.

Michael will be at The Trail Head Wednesday, January 11 to give a talk and slideshow featuring shots of snow and skiing, all taken in Montana, mostly in the Chief Joseph area and the Bitterroots. He will also talk about the Bitterroot Ski Club, and will have copies of their new full color brochures and maps to hand out to anyone who wants them.

Please join us 1/11 at our downtown location at 7:00 pm.
