    Thanks for the reminder, I think you can also get them at Gull (and probably others). Was thinking about getting 4 or so to be covered.

    Lost Trail just posted that they are banning uphill traffic as of tomorrow. https://losttrail.com/uphill-traffic...sIN3SCflTJWtMU

    As written in Lost Trail Ski Area special use permit with Salmon Challis and Bitterroot National Forest, uphill travel is not permitted after Nov 20th end of day. Please reference the specific permit language below.

    "Ski trails and other ski area improvements are designed for use by downhill travel by guests utilizing alpine, telemark, skis, or snowboard equipment. These trails and improvements are constructed to be accessed via the resort's ski lift system. Alternative use of trails and improvements are prohibited or restricted for safety considerations as listed below"

    "Use of the Alpine ski trail system for alternative winter activities such as uphill access is restricted due to hazard and safety concerns. All users within the Special Use Permit are required to purchase a Season Pass or daily lift ticket for downhill activities only."

    Please respect our no uphill travel policy. Lost Trail Ski Area sells powder...skiing & snowboarding is our business. Our feature product is the snow from Uller. That's all we have. We pay the United States Forest Service for a special use permit to provide untouched slopes for our season pass holders, our day trip users, our family of Patrollers & Instructors, and of course our employees out for a lunch run. We are fulfilling dreams of floating on a cloud in blissful untouched powder, with endless face shots. We ask all snow enthusiasts that like to hike, skin, or post hole our mountain to please enjoy until November 20th end of the day. Lost Trail will open snow and weather permitting December 3rd, 2020. Let's all enjoy a safe family place to recreate together this season. Remember masks or face coverings are required in our lodges and buildings, ticket lines, lift lines, and where social distancing cannot be maintained.

    Stuart Mountain snotel reporting 25 inches with 30% snow density! Seems it's setting up into a bombproof base up top.

    ^ Yeah I figured that I’d just call and have them mail my pass this year. I’m usually a stickler for getting a new pass photo every season, but I guess this is the year to be different....

    Lookout has some decent turns this weekend BTW:

    We had brought to touring gear as the news of Lookout cutting runs on Lion this summer sparked our interest. We get up there, and while the runs look like they would offer some great BC turns, the snowmobilers have realized that they can get on those slopes too. The entire area was absolutely shot with snowmobile tracks from top to bottom. Probably going to be like that all season now too. Fuckers.

    Disco opening Turkey day. Buddy who patrols says it's not too bad for what snow they have. Not sure what's gonna open but I'll prob go make a few runs before I gotta cook.

    Oh yeah also said the warm Tues created a pretty solid crust with a few new inches on top. We'll see how that plays out with new snow.

    I hit an opener up there one year with a 4 inch base of solid crust. Then there was 4-6 of fresh pow on top. It was awesome. Ride the lift with an old snow bowler and he gave me a tour which was basically skiing top to bottom angel somethings run after run. I finally convinced him to go in the woods and we skied untracked pow the rest of the day on a four inch base. I could barely walk at the end of the day. It was awesome being able to ski wherever u wanted on such a small base. Guy was super nice. Don’t remember his name but remember he had like 20 pairs of the pink vokl p12s I think.

    That would be Mark, though he usually paints them black with a minimalistic pinstripe design. He finally stopped skiing them recently, now he skis old Snowrangers. He also takes ski tuning to the level of fine artistry.

    Ha. Nice. Figured one of you guys would know him. It was an opener to remember. I’m kinda a low tide connoisseur though. Mark was cool - fed me lunch from his backpack all day so we could keep shredding!!

    The got this on there.


    IMPORTANT SNOWBOWL COVID-19 VIRUS POLICIES
    The safety and health or our guests and employees are of the utmost importance as we open for summer operations.
    We will be following all the current directives of the Health Department and the CDC.

    Following the Health Department directive and to limit congregation and the spread of the virus, we will be separating seating and waiting lines to maintain social distancing of 6 feet as well as sanitizing common areas on a regular basis. Wearing a mask is now required when indoors and where adequate separation is not possible.

    Please remember to follow CDC guidelines:
     Social distancing –give each other extra space, 6 feet is recommended
     Wash your hands for at least 20 seconds and wash them frequently
     If you are feeling sick, or have recently been in an area experiencing a spike in infections please stay home
     Limit congregation to no more than 10 persons
     Avoiding touching your nose, mouth, and eyes

    WINTER SKI SEASON POLICIES
    At this time we are planning to continue our summer policies and precautions during the winter season. These measures follow health department and other government requirements and include limited use of indoor facilities, wearing masks inside and where social distancing is not possible. We do not plan on limiting the number of skiers on any day but masks will probably be required where there are waiting lines including lift lines. We are making changes to expedite day ticket sales and and other sales. Rental and Snowsports reservations and transactions will be made online. Hopefully things will be better!

    If you have Day Ticket Coupons left from last season, we will honor those coupons this season through December 20th. After December 20th they will no longer be valid.

    Enjoy recreating outside in Montana at the Bowl!

    Thank you for your cooperation and supporting Snowbowl!

    Not limiting day tickets is stupid. Like most people up there don't have passes anyways? So a couple college students won't be able to go? They can be some of the worst spreaders anyway.
    And that bus? That sounds like a Rona Deluxe. Maybe keep the windows open.

    Good to know!
    Wanting to go tomorrow, but also thinking Lookout might have more open.

    Also, I'm told Snowbowl does have a canopy of some kind going up outside on the porch.
    IDK why they're always so bad at updating people on anything. Like when LeValle went down it was just rumors rumors rumors.

    Shedding excess gear. Any of you guys in Missoula need a probe? 300cm Life-Link, Easton aluminum, rattled around in a pack for a few years, $20.

    This is probably a better thread than the SW one but how is the base at Whitefish and Turner? Hoping to book my flight and hotels later this week.

    Whitefish is in the depths of a never ending high pressure system. At this rate, very little will be open on opening day, it'll be backside only, and it'll be mandatory downloading to get back down the frontside.

    Lookout was alright Monday. Good to finally get skiing.
    Is Snowbowl able (or willing) to make enough snow to get some top to bottom skiing open this weekend, or must we all be doomed to the high pressure suck fest?

    Where is this La Niña we were promised?! I want my La Niña!

    Patience is a virtue here. Yeah the high pressure sucks, but it could b a lot worse. At least we have ski hills opening here with relatively few crowds (Snowbowl fuckhead management notwithstanding).

    Thank god we don’t have to deal with reservations. Check out the “crystal mountain becomes Alterra” thread for an example of that shitshow...
