    You can always go to the mall and eat at Hoagieville. Guaranteed to be a hipster-free experience. Cheese fries!

    You haven't lived till you've had a JJ's Breakfast Special at 2:30am at The Oxford. Or maybe it's "died".
    No longer stuck.

    WOOT WOOT! Nukin' in Missoula

    How are your bases out there? We are still on the low side up here, lots of hazards in the trees, but we don't have a lot of summer grooming.

    Hopefully it starts snowing.
    Please just know that Missoula is a wonderful place with lots of happy people and that in response to your above question:

    yes, Snowbowl is far less prone to fog than Whitefish. Whitefish invariably gets bigger dumps, has faster lifts, and better groomers.

    But If it's an equal pow day at both Ill always choose "the Bowl" due to the better top to bottom fall line vert.

    The bowl may also be a little easier for an out of towner to figure out since you can see everything from the Griz Chair. Whitefish requires some map and sign reading and a willingness to traverse to find good lines. If you ski the fish here's what you do on a pow day if you make first chair: ski the 4-5 chair lines, then good medicine. Those are the two lines that give the most very right of the top, then hit elephants to haskells slide, then an east rim or north bowl, then hell roaring cause it will just have opened.

    Good luck

    hard to belive Taco Johnny would do that, he's such a wise businessman with tremendous long-term vision. OTOH, he does show decent appraisal skills where the New Mountain Valhalla transplants are concerned, they want everything made safe for them, and would likely sue Marshall for a mishap on a skin-up-ski-down venture in the Marshall footprint.

    Brains 'n' Eggs at the Ox are a fantastic way to end the evening.

    MAYBE hash browns and gravy, but no way brains 'n' eggs. And no matter what you eat in the Ox at 2 a.m., it's a mistake. You will not feel any better in the morning, perhaps much worse. And you will be emitting much stinkage out your butthole.

    The Old Town, now, that place could make a mean omelet. Also really liked the yogurt pancakes. Is it still in business?

    Raced in the telemark racing series at Marshall Mountain way back when. Under the lights in the evenings, icy as shit, skinny tele gear sliding around. Good times. But I always wondered who the heck would ever pay to ski there, because I sure never did. After I had kids I realized that it was probably supported by families with little kids who thought Snowbowl was more than they wanted to bite off. Seems like something productive should be made of the old place. I hope they get this issue worked out.

    I still skied snowbowl, but I took the after school lessons at Marshall growing up. Cost less than snowbowl and also better beginners area. The rope tow at Snowbowl is worthless. Also in high school the Marshall t-bar at night was an great spot to learn to telemark for not much money. Very convenient to town. Bummer they no longer run the lifts, was a cool place and many fond memories.

    Where is the 'woot woot nukin'? Looks like I won't be going, not worth the money if it's not snowing. Thanks for the info, I will get there at some point! It's been on the list for a while, just need it to snow...

    Drove home from West Yellowstone yesterday -- shocked at how screwed the snowpack is across the state. Looks like late March. Woke up to steady rain and 37 in Missoula. Webcam showing rain on Lolo Pass. Awful.

    That was a surprise read on the website. Is it raining at the bottom? It looks like it's raining half way up!

    I just think it's pretty lame that he titled the book "Missoula."

    Agreed. I think there is a huge difference between missoula as a whole and the university's administration (specifically the athletic dept. in this book I believe).

    The city/county govt are highly corrupt, the PD out of control, the judges agree with PD. But the town is hip happening badass mountain town right? Yeah, city/county govt isn't the people at all. Nobody turns a blind eye toward the corruption of City Council, Mayor, Chief of Police, City Attorneys, County Prosecutors and thinks "we're the hot mtn town of the 21st C".

    What should it be called? You want to blame Darby, or something? I think the title says it all. People move to "Missoula" they don't move to Missoula. And those who have moved to "Missoula" (rather than the actual place/people) like turning the blind eye because their fantasy "Missoula" can't possibly be disrupted.

    Missoula is no different than any other college town, nobody said it was perfect. It's probably a good title from a publishing perspective, but I hate to see that book hanging around Missoula's neck in perpetuity. I'm sure many will be glad to see Missoula "put in its place." I'm not that cynical and vindictive, especially toward a place I lived many years and have great fondness for.

    Been riding around on the road. There are a few trails you could ride but they are a bit muddy then everything else has plenty of ice in places. I have been thinking about checking out the lower stuff at blue mountain or trying out mo-z on mt sentinel but that would require me to go buy some sealant and mess with my tires.

    Right on, thanks. I'm passing through in a couple days - debating whether to bring a bike. Still a lot of valley snow / ice / slush in the Flathead.

    The guys at MSO Bike Source keep posting pictures of rideable trails. Not sure where, but they might tell you if you called.
