Wedge Mountain is the high point of the ridge immediately east of Nada and Snow Lakes and Snow Creek. This tour’s virtues lie in its gentle skiing terrain (steeper if you look for it)and its overlook of the Stuart Range and Snow and Nada Lakes. Some maps identify Wedge Mountain as a lower point near 5,836 feet. “Popular terminology and logic make the choice the 6,885-foot summit,” writes Fred Beckey in his Cascade Alpine Guide vol.1. Difficulties: Moderate avalanche potential; routefinding required; parking (you may have to dig).
