    More towers up now, but I'm still skeptical.

    Towers are one thing.
    Wheelhouses, motors, cables, safety inspections, test runs...

    I don't know what all is involved, but I'm sure it's a lot.
    No longer stuck.

    Are you saying that is the bowls advertising campaign? I need to dig up my missoula moobs billboard photo.

    edit: HAs to be a prank. Would have showed up on their facebook prior to spending money to print.

    Interesting marketing angle.

    Maybe, but their ads typically don't show up on the website, for the obvious reason that their website is NEVER updated.

    most shocking part is they have an "advertising agency"...I'm guessing a couple students working for a discounted season pass.

    Nope, it's Spiker Communications, one of the bigger ad agencies in Missoula. They do shit for Teva, Paws Up, the Stock Farm, etc. They think of themselves as a big deal. And Wes Spiker is a noted douchebag.

    Quoted for truth. Guy is a putz, I used to deal with him a lot 15-20 years ago. I doubt he has changed for the better.

    The ad is just plain stupid, it has nothing to do with skiing and it's not even funny. I think Wes got punked by those so-called "ad people" he showed it to for approval. How could anybody with a brain not see this coming? Unbelievable.

    They seem like a real piece of work, per their website.

    Doubtful, the pass party is totally separate from their normal pass sale process.

    If the storm forecast plays out, you may be able to snag some turns way up high late this week.

    I'm not holding up my hopes until we get closer to Thanksgiving.

    Supposedly people are skiing top to bottom on big mountain. Haven't been up there myself, and I'm sure they're sticking to lower angle terrain and rock skis, but with the snow forecast for the week, might be sort of ok pretty soon.

    Upper elevations of the Missions likely got hammered judging by the snotel

    I could see the most desperate being able to do that.

    It's usually a decent place for pre-season turns, partly due to the fact that it's basically all-grass on the lower half of the mountain. Definitely remember November laps where the top half was money, but the bottom parts were true survival skiing.
