    So last year it wasn't until October that he party occurred. No info yet, but it goes down normally at Big Sky Brewery. Not sure if the venue will be different this year.

    Here is a link to last year's party, if that helps at all:

    Also, I talked with a guy who did some work on the new Snowbowl lift this summer. Unless something comes up, it should (finally) be operational this season.

    Such is life here.

    Iowagriz, it'll happen. I'll PM you. It is a decent bit less than normal pre-season pricing.

    WOOT WOOT! Nukin' in Missoula

    Hey S_Jenks,

    I was wearing that Snowbowl t-shirt you gave me today and some tourists in Yellowstone Park gave me a shout out. Turns out they were from Missoula. Nice people, we chatted about how worthless Pat is.

    Legends and mayors always deserve a shoutout.

    Thanks man, it was the least I could do for you after the mayor's generosity last season. Sadly, the price hike makes a big sky visit less likely this season. But bridger is always in the cards.

    ^^ no word on if I will be receiving any free or discounted day passes this year. They did already give me my season pass for free. Last year on Dec 15 they gave me all those buddy passes. If I get them this year I will put your name on some of them.

    Clouds lifted enough to reveal fresh snow on Lolo peak this morning. Can see it from my workplace, so productivity is low amidst the daydreams.

    Thanks for the post/reminder

    Jenks - I better walk out to the end of the block to see for myself and get the motivation to get into shape

    Root - what is the approved/popular way to ride up onto the mountain (from town)? Main road then out the back of the parking lot? Or, up Butler Creek?

    You mean on a bike? The best way to climb is via the Beargrass Highway. Ride up past the lodge, up the bowl outrun next to the ropetow, and hang a right onto the road that leads to the bottom of Longhorn and Paradise. The trail comes across the bottom of Paradise, you should have no trouble seeing it when you get there.

    I suppose you could ride up second thought but it's pretty damn sandy.

    I usually go up the grant creek path and snowbowl road, and then like to come down butler creek. snowbowl road is a more gradual grade but can be pretty loose and washboardy. Butler is steeper but mostly hardpack dirt, and the top half or so is closed to cars so you can go pretty fast around the corners without much worry.

    If you want to ride up to the top of the skihill, the beargrass highway singletrack is a good way up as long as it's not on the weekend with the chair going. Riding up second thought blows. If I'm not going up the trail I go around tv mountain and up point 6 road. There are two roads back there, the lower one isn't as steep and goes past the base of the new chair and then switchbacks up to meet the upper road ride at the junction to the top of tv mountain.

    The new lift is a center bar with no safety ? Seems very odd, but we are talking Snowbowl...

    Is that ... sarcasm? I think back to a time long ago as a grom and the thought of that center bar with no safety bar gives me the shivers.

    I can't think of any occasion where a child has fallen off a chair at snowbowl so I'm sure it's fine.

    I think it is incomprehensible that Snowbowl has no safety bars on their chairlifts!!!!! I think all those who value safety bars should teach Snowbowl a lesson, and ski somewhere else!!!!!

    Don't really know, but I would think their insurance rates would be lower if they had safety bars.

    How can you be in two places at once when you're not anywhere at all?

    Usually, nobody is on the chairs that fall off the cable.
