Since plowing began in 2008, Hyalite Canyon has become an international winter destination with over 250 ice and mixed climbs, numerous back country powder bowls, miles of nordic trails, convenient ice fishing access and countless opportunities for sledding, sightseeing, camping and just getting away from it all.
Through a unique cost share agreement with the Forest Service and Gallatin County, Friends of Hyalite is the only organization contributing to the costs to keep the road open in winter. Without plowing, and our support, the road will be gated at the bottom, eliminating convenient access to 95% of the canyon. By donating to Friends of Hyalite you help keep the road open so that everybody can access and enjoy Hyalite in the winter.
Friends of Hyalite is a 501(c)3, donation-driven organization that draws on a broad base of community engagement and support. Since 2010, 93 cents of every dollar raised has gone directly to our programs and winter road plowing. By making a tax-deductible gift today, you will help ensure Hyalite remains enjoyable for all for generations to come.
