Does appear to be Rhizopogon, Joe.

Rhizomorphs on exterior of peridium and at base, staining red or pinkish.

Wish we had more information. That high supports either White pine, Whitebark pine, or maybe Sugar pine (although it’s a little low for that pine). Tentatively call it Rhizopogon rubescens, based just on the peridium staining.
