I parked at the end of Grainger road then, heading in a northerly direction, I skirted around a private property and picked up an old trail that leads to open slopes below a water tower. I aimed for the water tower then followed an old road that leads to a well maintained gravel road. The best option is to drive up that road (may not be plowed). To exercise that option, find the Kootenay River FSR east of town, drive a short distance and look for a well-maintained gravel road turning left, 858565. Drive (the part I hiked) for several kms to a pull-off/junction with a road closure sign (between december and end of april), 838617. Park here if early in the season. Follow this road to the 9 marker where it veers left, north-east. About 500 m. from that point, a trail heads in a southerly direction, (climber's right), 860603. Follow it to the summit where there is a paraglider launch. link on snow
Link loves the hiking.

Nappy, nappy...
Snowshoe trip: RT 5.0. Good travel on compacted snow from snowmachines, all the way to the summit! Hung out at the paraglider launch and enjoyed the sun and my bundle of energy, Link.
