Saw search and rescue going up there with sleds on my way back from riding in the Bangtails. Vibes to the injured, hopefully not too serious."The skis just popped me up out of the snow and I went screaming down the hill on a high better than any heroin junkie." She Ra

Two skiers were taken to Bozeman Deaconess Hospital after being caught in an avalanche above Fairy Lake on Monday, the Gallatin County Sheriff's Office said.
At about 4 p.m., search and rescue teams were called to the Fairy Lake area after a group of four skiers was caught in an avalanche, according to a written statement from the sheriff's office.
Rescuers were dropped off by helicopter and skied a quarter of a mile over steep terrain to reach the first injured skier, who had a broken leg. He was put on a toboggan and skied to a waiting helicopter below the lake.
A second skier with head injuries was located high above the first skier. He was lowered 500 feet on ropes and taken by Carrish helicopter to an ambulance waiting below the lake.
Bummer. Glad they're alive.I think the potato gun proved the stability.

Dang. Props to the Search and Rescue team! So glad nobody died. A bit of a sobering moment, though, as it's so hard to resist the temptation of a good mid-June pow day.

yea, the news said they were skiing the "great chutes" or something (aka Great One). I am glad I decided not to go out. Buddy said 8 inch of fresh up Beehive on Sunday.

Looks like a great time, Jup. That's quite the face to ski!
Skied Imp yesterday with George, still in great condition, turns all the way to the moraines. Ran into two nice folks out there and summited with them, and met a guy at the TH who was planning to ski it today. Usually I don't see anyone down there, yesterday saw 2 other parties with the same goal. Imp=played out. Ha! jk
George almost to the saddle
Decent bit of snow left up in them there hills..
George laying into a sweet turn. The snow was great, you could really let 'em run

Looks and sounds really good. Glad you posted this, gonna try and get back to do Echo next Monday Tuesday hopefully. Have yet to be on top of that one, might as well ski down. Gonna go see what the Great One's like tommorow.

Yeah, looks great. Echo looks fat.
Are those radio towers on Eaglehead?
06-26-2012, 09:54 AM #567
Damn Imp looks sweet. Tone i'd appreciate any info on the great one if you make it up there. Mostly curious if you can drive to the trailhead.

Skied the great one today. Road not open past second gate. Still some snow around the campground. Rode a buddy's junker hartail up there with my stuff and skied around 11:30. Still went through barely without taking skis off, the snow is not great and really peppered with rockall. Fun sporty skiing though, melting fast up there. A few pics soon...

Knee felt good enough, maybe it's that double fall line though, skied on my good leg the whole way down!
The steeper lines looked to be getting pretty borderline, big gap at the top of the laser and exposed rock in the airplane gully.
So that was my morning journey. Been trying to make the most of the long days so went up and rode Cinnamon in the afternoon. Horse fucked beyond all recognition in spots but it still tugs at my downhillin heartstrings.

solid day, tone. the upper looks about as smooth as I've ever seen it, for summer anyway
06-27-2012, 09:46 AM #571
Nice work, Tony, a burly daily double helping of fun. Damn this day job in the summer....Hey , Norseman, ran into your dad and future Bridger board member last week biking up Grassy.Buy the ticket...take the ride.

Somebody should go ski Echo with me next Monday Tuesday. I have lost alot of ski partners due to being a gimp for two seasons and people getting married, having kids and leaving for jobs. Not this dirtbag, free as a bird and looking for more ways to put this battered carcass to good use.
You can see the Echo peak and the line from the summit in OGDAFBE's photo. Not the biggest or gnarliest thing around, but a good excuse to go backpacking and climb a nice peak in some beautiful country. Bring bug dope.

Wish I could join ya tone, but rearranging 2 days of work is likely not possible. I'll let ya know if that changes though, am longing to ski it again..
also, looks like ya had a fun day out there.I think the potato gun proved the stability.

Nice work Tone, my buddy Chris came in the day after you I think. Conditions looked good, I was enjoying the view from afar.
That line earlier in the thread off Black is Burly, I was scared just watching that, here is a shot of it from across the way.
If Imp is all played out,....this is one to the North and East, not sure the name.
and the pony fire, sw Mt. conditon thread.....
