    Snowbowl also due to it's Southern aspected slopes, leads to some horrendously bad conditions, making much of the mountain challenging, to painful, for good skiiers. Beginners and intermediates avoid challenging conditions, and aren't lured by steep terrain either, which is most of what Snowbowl has. Add that to a road that many are afraid to drive up (even now that it's all wide and easy), many less experienced sno-goers go elsewhere. Thank God!
    Soooo... snowbowl sucks for everyone, and that's why people don't go there?

    You might be onto something.

    Although they've had some really good days the last few years.

    It sucks for people who suck. My slogan for the Bowl is: Don't bring your weak shit here. Take it to heart Mr. Whiney.

    I think that's marketable. Like how Snowbird posts their one star reviews from people who say it's too hard.

    "Snowbowl: don't bring your weak shit here, because there's usually horrendously bad conditions."

    I'm sure a lot of high level skiers will be excited to rise to the challenge.

    Toast is stuck skiing at the most over-rated ski area in MT, so he takes out his frustration picking on the most under-rated one.

    Meh. I'm stuck close to the canadian border, and driving to places that are actually good most weekends. If I start a thread about how awesome the skiing in whitefish is, feel free to call me out on my bullshit.

    I've always kind of wondered why there isn't a NW Montana thread. Just a bunch of stokeless sad sacks living up there or what?

    I think you should start a NW Montana thread, toast. Include your Canadian areas. We want pics.

    And rarely worth it these days, unless you're bringing BC gear.

    A NW MT/Northern Rockies thread would be pretty dope, and it'd cast a wide enough net to bring together the threads of stoke. The SW MT thread seems to be a good example to follow.

    I mean, right off the bat we'd have:

    Snowbowl
    Whitefish
    Disco
    LT
    LP
    Turner(?)

    Backcountry TR's in:

    Glacier/Essex
    Whitefish/Swan/Mission ranges
    Lolo/Bitterroot region
    Cabinet mtns

    Plus all the good stuff on the fringe in CA/ID.

    Just my input, but it might be worth starting this winter season if we've got the mags for it.

    There is no good skiing worth reporting about up here.

    Oooooh, we should probably interpret this to mean, "The skiing is so awesome up here that we don't want to let anybody in on the secret." [gag]

    Just start a thread you NW MT pussies.

    I like the idea of a NW Montana/Crown of the Continent thread, would offer a broader net to gather stoke and conditions updates

    No one is stopping you. There's a nice gaggle of Kalispell/Whitefish mags.

    Snowbowl posted on Facebook that they're hiring for the maintenance department.
    They have a maintenance department?

    Good amount of space back there. Here's a run



    I don't know how long it takes to put up all the towers and then the cable and chairs but it seems like they're running out of time to have it done this year.
    Those were up last year at this time :-\ same ones

    Cool. Is it the angle of the photo or are those towers overly tall for the terrain and couple feet of snow that would cover the slopes?

    They've had all the lift poles up for a week and a half, the more worrisome element is installing the components of the motor room including the wiring. When I asked a key worker about it, he didn't exude a lot of confidence in getting it done this fall. We'll see come December.
