    Hey Montana friends- checking in to see if anything is riding between the Tetons and Butte. Lewis and Clark? Copper City? Or should I just wait another day? Bring skis?

    @panchosdad is working on our future rentals in Butte so I am going to meet him. Got any Butte recommendations?

    Copper City is mega mud apparently and if it's wet there it's probably unridable for 300 miles in every direction.

    I didnt stop but was driving by L&C around noonish and it looked ride able but didnt pull in to check. It had warmed up pretty good and snow was almost nonexistent. Might be worth a look with temps 2moro.

    Heh, I was wondering if you would catch that. Yes, rolled over one Teton Valley rental into two in Butte. So we'll be around more, and especially in transit between the two. Rode a lot of great new to us and empty trail in the Tobacco Roots this year.

    Might try for a Lewis and Clark spin tomorrow midday. Will report back.

    they are usually pretty good about answering the phone and giving an on scene trails report. I was going to phone them this morning about 9.

    From what I have seen Butte is going off these days and a good place to consider if you don't mind all the old contamination, it is getting cleaned up. Joe Schmoe keeps a place over that way and his wife prefers it to Bozeman.

    I sold a client a registered historic house in Uptown this past summer for just a stupid cheap price. Like a joke. Home is freaking awesome actually.

    If I were a speculator in such matters, I'd look for a nice cleaned-up view lot in Anaconda and build six high-end units on it, either condos or townhomes or whatever. Something that would appeal to the retired Seattle/San Fran/Denver types moving to that area.

    But I'm not so I won't.

    Non-mag buddy sold his STR in the Meadow Village, did a reverse mortgage on his Hill Condo, and bought a huge copper baron mansion in Uptown Butte. Included photos of four different US Presidents visiting the mansion, including both Teddy and FDR, plus 2 others (Coolidge maybe ?). Price $300K about 4 years ago.

    He is a skilled carpenter, works in Big Sky making $$$, stays in his Hill Condo. Goes to Butte and lives like a king. Something like 12 bedrooms and zero insulation. Costs three grand a month to heat.

    Ripping skier, Bunion probably knows him, been in Big Sky about 20 years. he skis 203 Volkl Shiros. EZ guy to spot in the lift line. Might be the same guy Bunion is talking about ?

    File under phrases that don't usually go together.

    Nope, Joe Schmoe is long time BB guy and environmental cleanup engineer (ret.)

    Homestake south east of butte handles moisture pretty well. XC for sure but cool terrain.
    a positive attitude will not solve all of your problems, but it may annoy enough people to make it worth the effort

    Anyone got a good trout hole near to the Bozone? Fairy Lake any good?

    Apparently all of Bozeman thinks below the dam is the spot...


    I'm amazed how much snow melted from Friday afternoon to sat night. It was a fun weekend hanging in a certain drainage. Big moon, dogs, bears, and moose.

    SUF if you want to fish with 2 dogs and me rowing I'll let ya know next time we're floating.

    If I'm catching dinner, tossing worms to brookies in Hyalite creek is big fun.

    When I lived over near hyalite I would fish the creek 3-4 days a week. Brookie fish tacos are hard to beat. However I found that before I left(3-4 yrs ago) I was catching way more rainbows than brookies.

    You're asking in this in a forum that pounces on people for openly discussing non-stellar backcountry outside of Helena.

    Find water, throw in a line, maybe you'll catch a fish, maybe you won't. It's always good to get out.

    Try the East Gallatin just up the road from MAP Brewery, it's basically your civic duty as a new Bozeman resident.

    So we rode Pipestone Pass to Homestake Pass to Maud S. Found some snow for sure, but also some lovely singletrack. If I were high grading, I'd go Homestake north towards the high point out and back. Snow on degrading granite doesn't seem to make mud though.

    My go-to back in the day was axtell's, shed's and cameron's. It was mostly quiet then but who knows now.

    Is that the 1st time you have ventured up that way? Lots more where that section ends.
