    Drop into this thread when you're next up if you need or want a touring partner. Maybe we'll even get some more snow... maybe.
    Thanks! Yeah, word is he was one-and-done.... which feels sad. Wish someone knew his name so I could attempt to shoot him a note. I'd wager he has extra parts around. It's a good product.

    Sucks that the website/email/social all came down.

    Check the snowbrains article for his name. At least I think that's the guy you're looking for.

    Nice goats Gnar_Schralp! Coincidentally this goat pic from 5 years ago came up on my Facebook "memories" today.

    Hard to believe that was five years ago!

    Sun and some fresh snow made the big scree pile a fun place to ski today even if I didn't see any goats. Fresh tracks all day without really trying. My best run was Don't Tell Mama when it opened and brings Bunion to mind for some reason.

    Yeah it was nice today. First half-hour on Andesite was about as good as cowpow gets. Later I foolishly took some new skis on a bunch of tram runs and hit shitload of rocks... or maybe I just noticed them more. Oh well, no serious damage done.

    Thanks. I googled and came up with this article that didn't mention a name of the manufacturer.

    That's almost certainly the guy, seems like getting in touch with him shouldn't be too hard.

    You're totally right!

    Somehow I misread this:
    "For the last few winters, Iíve been stealing cam-buckle straps off of other boots, buying them on eBay, or just making my own. Finally, thereís a featherweight option specifically for backcountry skiers!"
    as saying he was making his own and now there is a BETTER version (made by someone else).

    My mistake!

    If you wind up with a pair, it'd be great to hear a review. I'm on a pair of Vulcans that somehow won't die and my only gripe with them is the strap.

    Friggin nice day out there today. 2Ē is the new 8Ē.

    I ski this stash almost every day and Iíve never seen a skin track going right up the middle of it. There is a dog leg at the top of this line that I came ripping around as the skin track came into view with a group just kickin it at the bottom.

    There is a perfectly safe and established up track like 150 yards away. Just sayin.

    Such great snow today and perfect weather!

    Montana no fake news Trip Report:

    So, Vail has like one fkn chair open at Stevens, Daisy. Decided to venture out and try Montana for my first time.

    Day 1: Lost Trail, showed up on Wednesday and it was closed? WTF?! Went to the hot springs and got molested by a cowboy. Skied on what the locs said was powder Thursday. It was more like breakable crust and traverse day. They really need to replace that double chair with a high speed so I can get my shred on in Hollydork bowl or whatever that 3 turn shot was.

    Day 2: Discovery, what a joke, rocks everywhere on the back, there is no snow, even the locals told me it sucks and spoke of a snow "donut" Evidently the storms never hit here. Got my ass kicked in Anaconda afterwards.

    Day 3: Great Divide, this place is anything but great. I hear the mtn biking is good and I attended a protest in Helena.

    Day 4: Game on. Bridger Bowl. Ready to teach you all how to ski but this garbage place seems to be a place you ride a lift to a place where you start hiking? My lungs were burning, and some guy was on my ass the whole way to the Fingers. No parking spots, got my skis stolen at the base area.

    Day 5: Big Sky. Now this is a real ski area. I crushed it hard here. Lapped Lone tree, all 400 vert of it until my legs were burning and the real estate brochure in my pocket was calling my name. Day 2, and I hit SwiftCurrent, Mr. K was my kind of shredding. Scored a Combat Skier at Scissor Bills from the manager.

    Day 6: Touring up Hyalite. Everyone was mean to me here. I got hazed out of the parking lot for not having this year's model of Arc' Teryx and tools to hack away at frozen water?

    Day 7: snowmobile across Hebgen where the hoar frost was 4 feet deep. Got avied into a bear's den and had my face torn off. Shoulda done the snow coach thingy.

    Day 8: Fuk Montana, headed for Schweitzer. This is like Whitefish, Nazis, fog, and shitty skiing. Goggles fogged all day, I think I skied a bowl and a tree run. Got my ass kicked again in Cour d a Lame.

    Bottom line is that Montana sucks and fuck this thread, you guys are posers who think skiing on rocks is cool, cowboys in G strings at Hot springs are normal, and getting avied into a grizzly bear is a legit way to spend your fkn day. Utah rules, and the skiers in Jackson are way better.

    To be clear, I have a pair on some F1 LTs, and they're great. I just tried to put them on my Zero Gs now despite having a 2nd set, and I realized that I either lost or was never sent the 2nd set of hardware that pair of boots requires.

    I recommend them, but it's probably hard to find the straps at this point.

    This should be pinned to the top. Bravo, perfect.

    You got warmed up in Anaconda, how'd the fight scene go in Butte?

    Troof.

    Was hoping to see a few more pics from Big Sky this week. Looks like it was pretty good driving home yesterday.

    I'm headed up this morning to see if there are any leftovers.

    Speaking of Discovery and rocks - there was a couple of super rocky zones just above the traverse from bottom of Limelight Chair to the Granite Chair. Do those ever fill in in the big years? That would be some wicked stuff.

    I don't claim to know enough about big years but that area def gets "big sky" filled in and skied/hucked. In fact I had my first tomahawk in like 15 years last season there.

    That TR is downright inspiring, I'm headed to anaconda tonight to pick some fights!

    Looking at On The Snow numbers for Disco.

    Biggest year in the last 10 is 16-17 with 199"


    Last two years look rough. 19-20 was 52". 20 -21 was 45". Could that be right? Ouch!!

    Average of 121" - but that woulda been better before the last 2.

    I guess if it's skiable in those years, it could be pretty sick when the snow comes back. I'm surprised you survived the tomahawk with those snow levels!!
