Idaho Alpine Club

Idaho Alpine Club. A late and short season severely curtailed the outings and activities of the club in 1965. Ski tours into early July were held in the Teton Pass, Beartooth Pass, and Galena Summit areas. In the early part of the season climbing outings were limited to the lower Teton peaks. An outing to Big Horn Crags scheduled for July 4 was canceled owing to the access roads’ being closed by snow. The summer’s major outing, held in the Wind Rivers in Wyoming, was postponed from the middle of July to early August because of the late snowpack. Despite scheduling difficulties, the outing proved a success with one group based in the Titcomb Valley region making over a dozen ascents and a second group making a loop backpack through the central part of the range. The two contingents met in the Titcomb Lakes and Island Lake region for some combined climbs. The Executive Council members for 1966 are: Richard Wilde, president; Cyril Slansky, vice-president; John Echo, secretary; James Kemper, treasurer; and Joe Gale, Dean Millsap, and Barbara Brown, members-at-large.
