Hey John ... obvious troll is obvious. Go cunt up some other thread. This wasn't started as a dick measuring contest between Montana and Jackson. We get it, Jackson has a lot of snow. Great. You proved a point that didn't need proving. You want a gold star or something?
In other news, Big Sky skied most excellent yesterday. Once again, Challenger delivered the goods. The tree off Dakota were holding well into the day, as was Rice Bowl.
The not so good? Getting rocked out in the nether regions between Liberty and Dakota bowl. To add insult to injury I lost my Suunto watch during the hike out or when I augered into a skree pile prior to hiking. Awesome.
Sorry, no stoke. Too busy skiing the goods and losing expensive watches. The upside is that Marx, Lenin, Castro, Dictators and everything back there looked fantastic. Go get some!

Left side of Lenin was sweet and and then I took my son down the Gullies for the first time. Crons probably had the best turns of the day. Great day on Lone Peak finished with some apre at Scissorbills

Saturday was a great day, as noted. It also provided some redemption after getting high centered out in the nether regions of Dakota/Wyoming bowl and losing my Suunto watch. Marx & Lenin were quite good; with Marx more so. Dictators were also really good. Nothing quite like Tram laps on a blue bird day, none on the Southern Exposure and soft snow.
And now, some stoke since this thread needs more of it ...
My only shot of the day as I was going Lone Ranger style:
A view from the top of the world, plus I think I can see your Tetons from here.
Now, a few shots from some Maggot lurkers skiing Beehive Saturday.
"I can see Bobcat Sig from here!"
Blue bird goodness.

Was that yer skin track i saw today going straight up the middle through a slide path to a terrain trap that's buried people before? Hate talking shit online, but was surprised to see an up track there. My apologies if it wasn't you. That's just the only "high-use" bc area around BS, want us all staying safe.
Was fun up there though, huh? Thanks for leavin the main shot skier's left open so I could ski it!I think the potato gun proved the stability.

Hestra Gloves on the Blackmore Trail Today
I found a nice pair of Hestras on the Blackmore trail today just before the first stream crossing if anyone would like to claim them pm the details.

checkin out whassup this wknd...
There are few guarantees when your business is winter. Even in one of National Geographic’s World's 25 Best Ski Towns, look no further than the nearest window to find the empty account where once we anticipated the open checkbook of La Niña. After the bountiful winter of 2010-11, what we expected were powder days, deep and numerous, a season of frightful storm and blissful adventure.
Well, hold on Bozeman, you’re about to get a night of comeuppance. This year there is one absolutely guaranteed opportunity to relish a powdery feast: The Cold Smoke Awards Ceremony this Saturday night at the Emerson’s Crawford Theatre. A Bozeman original, "an exposition of winter culture," and a grassroots film festival—the CSA ceremony will unfurl before a crowd that answered the call, in the words of one of the emcees, Anjin Herndon,“Get funky, dress like freaks, and let’s go.
Calling all Dummies to the DUMMY JUMP!
2:30pm Saturday, February 11th in the Mountain Village base area. Build your own dummy or come watch as we launch dummies off of a huge ski jump to an explosive landing!:
>>Click Here To Register For The 2012 Dummy Jump
Watch a video of last year's Dummy Jump 2011
The Fine Print:
First, form a team of like-minded, conniving friends or co-workers. Then build a dummy on skis or a snowboard. A couple things to remember: there will be children at the event- keep it reasonably clean, and it should resemble an organic life form. The dummies need to be delivered to the Summit Hotel Clock Tower by noon o’clock on February 11th. The dummies will be on display until 1 pm, when we start hauling them up the hill. The launching will start around 2:30. We will be launching dummies off a kicker on Ambush again, to the viewing delight of judges and guests.
Leave No Trace- Only weight your dummy with things that can be packed back out of here. Remember we have to clean this up and nobody wants to ride through gravel or dirt. So don't use concrete or sand - try water or get creative instead. Please limit buckets of paints and other materials that can stain the snow and make it melt faster.
Hints from year’s past:
Balance, balance, balance (2 skis, not one)
The heavier the better, while still being manageable by a couple of people
The crowd likes a theme
It can SELF-destruct; it doesn’t need your help (i.e. No pyrotechnics)
No Paint, or anything that will stain the snow, please, we still have a lot of season left and we don’t need brown or red snow for the rest of it.
Destruction on Impact
Non-organic life form category (in case you can’t make it human)
Awards for these categories will be given out at Whiskey Jack's after a short period of deliberation after the last dummy flies.

Pretty cool little video that Big Sky put together this weekend/early this week. Anyone have any idea where this was shot from? I drove around Beehive Basin/all the little real estate roads up there last weekend trying to find a spot with this view of Lone Peak and struck out.
Another location I thought might be cool was down by the chapel. Does anyone know the rules about being there after dark? Am I likely to get bothered?

Looks to me like that was shot from both the top of Lone Moose and Andesite.

Also, see you maggots at the Dummy Jump tomorrow. Should be a good time. The Clintons are playing afterwards. It might stand to be a good chance to get drunk in ski clothes, no?

Big Sky has been skiing really well this year (I think my expectations of MT winters are finally coming back to reality after last winter...)
Anyone been down in the Tobacco Roots this year? I haven't heard any first hand reports and am starting to get curious...

Well last run through the trees between Mr. K and Crazy Horse got the better part of me today. Pretty sure i got a full tear on my right MCL (heard a nice big pop as i was tumbling.) So question is who is the man to see around here about knees? Thanks for the help

Hope your knee isn't as bad as you think, good luck.

Bummer on the knees, dudes. Sure it's a full tear, 509? Instability too? I felt/heard a loud pop during a very hard tumble once that turned out to be merely a minor meniscus tear.
Dig the last shot, ecowhit. Hope qwality whitebark treeskiing runs last a few more years.

is anyone else scared shitless of BC skiing around here?
I have done many early season tours in the bridgers and many late season tours in the Tabaccos, but mid season I am too scared honestly. I have lost too many good friends in the past 5 years, and am sketched out by too many skiing partners to do it much anymore.
Back in WA, unless it was really cold for a long time, or really warm, it was always stable 3-5 days out of any storm cycle. It was warm enough to consolidate suspect layers, and cold enough to not have water percolation (although when it happened, the 15 foot crowns were pretty cool).
