    I think it's fine. FS land. I've seen uphillers there


    My snow boner seems to have knocked Stuart Mountain Snotel offline. Must be a lot up there. Hm...

    Coverage was okay last evening above about 6K'. Lower angle snow covered roads were totally fun. Steeper grassy slopes were okay, but rock skis recommended. Pretty much "game on" above 7K'.

    Hell yeah man! Quite the setup you got going on there- Do you love it/hate it?

    Getting the BC gear readied up over here. This storm seems to be the green light.

    The ski setup is an old pair of sticks that rarely make an appearance these days; only when base damage is pretty much a given. The bike setup is okay, but less than ideal. the wide tires are nice, but the small diameter wheels are limiting for riding in deeper ruts. The front shock on it is completely weak. It bottoms out easily and I can’t find a way to stiffen it. I wish it had a rigid fork instead. The motor gave me issues for the first time last night. It would slip when trying to go up anything steep, even though it has climbed steep grades without issue before. I am not sure if the cold and moisture had something to do with it yet or not. I would have done just as well on a non-motorized fatty. I purchased the e-bike primarily as a skiing access vehicle. It was about the cheapest one I could find and as usual, you get what you paid for. If there is a ‘next one’ it will have fat 29” tires, a more reliable motor, and possibly even 2WD.

    Wish I had rock touring skis. Puking now though. Stuart Mountain Snotel says 28". Anyone free after 10 tomorrow? Snowbowl? I'd imagine Spartan or Paradise would be fairly rock free.
    Please correct me if I'm wrong.

    They are totally fine with it, at least when the lifts aren't spinning.

    Also, looks like I am going to win ALL THE BETS. Can't believe anyone took me on: https://missoulian.com/news/local/sn...df96029a7.html

    Broke down while at work this morning, so at lunch I loaded up the gear into the car. When the time came I dipped out from work with the goal of checking the bowl out. By then the road has melted to mostly mud up to the last mile, by then becoming icy.

    Despise the 14 heavy inches in the parking lot, the track up to Paradise was classic garbage. Early-season 'booters had been out in force. Once ascending the main run, the pack grew steadily to over 2 feet.

    The occasional skier would make an appearance on the slope. Managed to capture this native mid-harvest

    Up by the top of Far East, I felt a casual pop in my binding, and before I knew it I stood halfway in snow. After 6 years of use, the Salomon bindings finally snapped along the blue rails connecting the heel piece. I'd seen the trip reports about the defect, but was surprised to see it happen to me. On flat ground. On their first tour of the year.

    Luckily it broke far enough down the plastic mounts that I was able to slide it back in, and re-hook it to the heel base. Ended up being able to ski down the whole way. The bindings held surprisingly well, but definitely could feel a looseness in the broken one.

    Luckily enough the lighting got better and better. Ended up linking turns under the stellar light while the 5pm rush hour traffic still skinned up along the edge.

    Not sure what to do at this stage about the binding, but I may email Salomon regardless since it broke under such casual circumstances. I am certain that re-drilling these skis are not an option, but luckily the Ski Swap is this Saturday.

    Cheers all.

    ^^^Nice, thanks for posting, love those sunset photos. Good to see that much snow, hopefully keeps up through the new year. Bummer about your binding, time for some shifts :-)

    Oh noze!
    Should have figured there'd be that many tracks at the bowl by now.
    Is it still possible to get up to Lolo peak trail? They opened it again toward the end of the summer. Or should I just go to Snowbowl tomorrow? Weather report for up there says a little snow and winds gusting a little bit into the 20's mph. Is that something I need to be concerned about?

    Looks like Sam and Pancho. Sam's "retired" these days, but still pretty fast.

    Amazing shots!

    Fine time it was for the bindings to have broken, knowing I was so close to that.

    I have those too, but not used much for touring. Is it snow build-up under the frame that causes the stress to eventually break it? Seems like that could be a thing.

    I might have been the first person to put some tracks down snowbowl's side country this season today. It was not even a full lap down to the lake, but it still counts right?

    I just got back from picking up my season pass, and learned that Snowbowl will be opening this Sunday. What areas will open is not known currently.
