Lewis and Clark Pass / Rogers Pass

Lewis and Clark Pass / Rogers Pass Professional Review and Guide

"The Continental Divide runs north-south through Montana, slicing the state into distinct west and east sides and very different weather patterns. During the winter the Continental Divide Trail can be accessed at only a few mountain passes. Parts of the trail are skiable, although it varies from challenging, day-tripper’s backcountry to extreme expedition skiing.

A major portion of the trail, more than 100 miles between Rogers Pass and Marias Pass, is not crossed by roads. The routes from the Lewis and Clark Pass north to the Scapegoat Wilderness and down to the trailhead, or alternatively from Lewis and Clark Pass south to Roger’s Pass, both offer moderate climbs and outstanding vistas. These routes should include an overnight camp. Surface quality: Variable backcountry; use edged skis and climbing skins."
