    I was a bowl pass holder for 12 years here are my two cents:
    The bowl is a great mountain if you want to get away from people and spend some time in the woods. It got a super short drive and shorter lines. Maybe this has changed, but it didn't seem like it when I came to visit last week. Its a mountain filled with nooks and cranies tucked into the woods and cliffs that provide skiers with just enough of a challenge to make you feel good about yourself. It also has the best ski bar I have ever been to (great food affordable drinks). Sure the owners are weird, but if you don't run your mouth off and smile at them every year when you pick up your pass, they will leave you alone. Like I said, it used to be a place to go to get away from everyone. Has that really changed?

    I hate to interrupt the bowl hate fest, but did anyone happen to snap pics of a dude with a huge mohawk ripping up the bumbs on angel face yesterday?

    The way I feel right now, the place I'm in in my life, I see why a less sane person would shoot up a movie theater. No, I would never do anything like that, but hey, they guy's gonna get free room and boards for the rest of his life and never have to worry about money or a job or bills or skiing or whatever again.

    I'm losing grip on myself, here.

    It is totally fine. The only way to get there is via black runs and it is a light blue run. Folks show up with blown quads at the delta and rather than taking a few seconds and skiing it safely, they just try to survive and point it flailing heavily and endangering others. It is people at fault, not the outrun. So you can see why corncobSTUCKinbuttt has problems. It is amazingly shallow and simple considering the negative attention it gets.

    All I said was I was tired when I got down to it, for someone who tells people to chill, you're sure vitriolic.

    Am I the only one who likes rallying up the snowbowl road? Of course I am not passing people on the right but I damn well love drifting some of those turns.

    I don't pass people on the right, either.

    Finally, one last comment on the stuck issue -- Dude, if you ever decide that just maybe, perhaps, you overreacted and could have handled the situation better, Ronnie might be willing to talk to you about it. I personally know at least one person who was banned for LIFE and guess what -- he's now back at the bowl, killin' it.

    Anyways, whatever happened, I hope you get over it. Pissed off, defensive about everything, and with a $475 pass burning a hole in your pocket is no way to go through life.

    How can you not?

    A clean pass (clean = left side) on an icy mountain road should be part of any driver's exam. Bonus points if all 4 wheels are drifting during the pass. Double bonus points if you're in a two wheel drive vehicle.

    Seriously though. If I got back every minute of my life spent behind some sunday driver toodling up (or down) the snowbowl road, I'd probably have enough time to collate all of the stoke in this thread into one, fairly short page and put the drama in the remaining 66 pages.

    Bonus points for not using the pedals much on the way down and using the gears and engine to control your car so you don't go sliding into a ravine.

That's typically called stealing. Or breach of contract, or whatever.

    It's fine, they just won't get any more of my money, nor will Last Run Inn, since they pay Snowbowl to be there. That also means, unfortunately, that the bartenders, ski patrol, and others who are totally cool will not be getting it either. See? You wanna talk having a douche attitude? Well if Snowbowl wants to have a douche attitude, it'll effect them and the people around them too. Shit goes both ways.
    Congrats, Snowbowl crew, you obviously fit in well there. See you at Losttrail next year.
    You overestimate the importance of your money, to Snowbowl you became a liability when you passed the Bus, which is part of Snowbowl's operation BTW. The little money you spend on the mountain doesn't compare to the perception of danger which passing a schoolbus creates.

    I've passed and been passed on the bowl road many times - but only in the middle mile that is somewhat straightish, the other 4-5 miles are just too curvy/narrow.

    All part of the charm . . . which again, inspires most people because once one recognizes how good it can be there then you can stop with all the complaining about how you think the place should be managed or ran. It's a community of folks who love to ski and ride.

    to quote some friends . . .



    Just pulled up a pew at the church of holy snowy redeemers.


    Moonlight didn't get the total snowfall that the bowl got, but still serves up the powder, packed powder, and machine groomed runs - headwaters > alder gulch skiied soft and deep in spots

    Payback is a bitch?

    You were speeding, passing a loaded School Bus, on the right, on a snowy road, getting your pass pulled, causing a scene in the liftline, pissing off the ski patrol/instructors and the mountain manager. Sounds like a douche parade.

    what, you want kudos?

    It's just that I think I would have noticed if there was a big yellow schoolbus I couldn't get around. So, no, that wasn't me either.

    Alright Alex, its time to clear the air and put and end to this mess.

    Did you pass on the right?

    Did you pass a school bus?

    Were you banned for the day or for the season?

    FWIW, I have met Alex and he does not match his TGR persona.

    Couldn't agree with you more. I've been in Bozeman now for 4 years and I miss the skiing and the all the vibe of the bowl a lot.
    I still consider it my skiing home.
    Thanks for the picture. When I heard he was going to be riding over there I almost loaded the kids into the car a drove over. Now I kind of wish I had.

    My roommate and I bought a car together in 2000. It was sweet ass Honda Acord we paid 5K for. The second day we had it we were coming down from the bowl (it was SUPER slick). Some dude in a pick up comes barreling down the road and starts tailing us hard through the three tighter curves before you get to the first houses. We were going to pull over and let him go by as soon as we could, but we ended up putting it into the inside ditch before then. The dude couldn't turn to miss us and ripped off the back right fender of the car. It was the greatest thing that could have ever happened... The insurance company totaled it, we duck taped the trunk closed, and put a 200 dollar stereo into the thing. It was the greatest FREE skimobile Western Montana had ever seen!

    I did not pass a bus
    I did not pass any vehicle on the right
    I was banned for the only day I had to ski in a while and it also happened to be the biggest day of the year. I was really all I had to look forward to for a while.

    Did I over react? Probably. Picture the seen: you are confronted at your car by 3 people, 1 of whom demanding your name etc. All too frequently, a story with "confronted at his car" ends with "is in critical condition at the local hospital." Little defensive? Oh yeah. Then add all the adrenaline in the air on a big day in a low snow year and a person with little elsewhere to go but up, and a douche instructor who thinks he's hot shit, and you've got a confrontation on your hands that will be memorable for everyone.

    are you big enough to have a scenario end with "in critical condition in the hospital"? or small enough?

    honestly, i can't. i don't pay too much attention. just glancing blows when i hop on the bandwagon and pile on. from the image in my head, i was guessing three on one would have put you in the hospital, whereas one on one would have just been embarrassing and mildly painful.
