I have found the website www.mountain-forecast.com to be very useful when planning my backcountry travel. I really like it because you can look for specific mountains, instead of the town below it. I am sure that there are other useful weather sites out there that you use, but I just wanted to share this one in case anyone else was interested.

WOW! It even has forecasts for mountains near where I live! 

A lot of websites only worry about the US and maybe a few of the better-known Canadian locations. You outta see what a mess Google makes of trying to find a trailhead in Jasper NP! This one is GOOD!

Thanks a lot Ashleigh.

Thanks for sharing that, Ash. My brother showed it to me years ago, and I LOVE it. The best site of it's kind out there.

I'm chuckling, as it includes the "mountains" of Indiana, Illinois, & Missouri, considering the highest elevation around here is 2,500'.
