    No need to apologize. Nothing wrong with being honest with the full on suck zone we are living in right now.

    Anybody play music/wanna jam/rock out? Been working on some music, but need other musicians to fill in the blanks. Totally open to the input and influence of others, could be a fun way to pass the down time if any of you are musicians without a band in the Bozeman area.

    I drove back from Oregon yesterday and it rained for 600 miles, all while maintaining a steady 40 degrees; including the passes. Not that it matters to us, but Lookout Pass is proper fucked with that kind of warmth and rain. So any moisture and weather we are going to get is going to be wet and warm. Rad.
    yep. it effing pissed here all last night in missoula. however, lost trail seems to have been spared, receiving 10 inches last night, and 16 since 6a yesterday.

    Just remeber grasshoppers, anytime the moisture is coming straight from the west or up the Snake River Plain/Great Basin this time of year, there is only a small chance the Bridgers will get anything more than a quick creamy 1-3" no matter what kind of apocolypse they are predicting for southern Madison and Gallatin counties. Sometimes it dumps, but don't get your hopes up for those scenarios, just feel lucky for anything we get in the Bridgers. Often they give all of Gallatin County a Winter Storm Warning for these scenarios, but usually it applies only to West Yellowstone and the 191 corridor. Big Sky usually only gets bits and pieces of those storms as well.

    Tone, if it will help avert suicide, I have some MLB 1/2 price passes. Let me know when and one can be yours for the asking.

    I was hoping hick would do it, you know, pull the trigger or poison me when I least expect it, do I still go to hell then?

    I might have to rethink that now, that is super nice of you, especially considering our sparring in the polyass arena. All in good fun though, I always appreciate the spirited engagement.

    All I ask is a reasonable groomer or two to slide around on. I gotta work at four tommorow but one day early next week would be great. Much appreciated Bunion.

    ^^^^ targhee says 127" @ the top (are they high??), any chance the nipple might be open tommorrow?? tryin to maximize the dollar/pow value ratio. @ one time the ghee used to honor mt season passes @ half day rate, a call revaled this is no longer the case(maybe it's who i talk to?) 3hour drive to ltpm for 31bux and 20" or four hour drive to targhee 69$ and the same amount of snow, on a larger base? you people understand my conundrum. (hehe, reading comprehension failure, 127" total snowfall)


    In other news congrats on MLB gettin the love on freeskiin qualifier, might have to get up there that weekend and win that shit!!!!! ( too bad it costs 200$$)

    rockcreek - the 1/2 day pass w/ a MT season pass was good as of late spring last year. So either the policy changed over the summer or whoever you spoke with didn't have accurate info.

    Wherever you all end up tomorrow, have fun.

    Drive back from Seattle yesterday through endless rain and warm temps. Water skiiing at snoqualmie sure looked like a blast.


    While we're all shitting in the bed lets think about how great the wild fires will be this summer

    Heard JH got some the last few days and due for more. We're looking at altering our trip.

    Bunion - did you get my PM or are you just hating' on NSP vollies this year? No worries though - staying at the Lodge at BS unless we find something tastier at Jackson.

    I did get it but been too damn busy with work and all that shit. Also the news has been too dismal to face.

    Here's the deal. The Headwaters are still closed due to absolute and total lack of snow cover in critical spots until Thursday night.

    We got 6" of concrete along with favorable loading winds so the crew is in giving it their best to start opening some terrain up high perhaps today.

    This next push of moisture looks real favorable but I would feel a lot better if the temp. would drop by about 5-10 degrees. We would wring a lot more snow out of them clouds with slightly cooler temps. Long Range forecast looks wet, warm, wild and windy. Excellent for ski porn.

    The N. Summit has been closed because the winds last weekend polished it to a diamond hard wasteland and rendered it unskiable/boardable.

    The lower mountain has been skiing well because we happen to have an incredible group of cat operators who seem to be able to perform magic every night. It was getting pretty thin but again 6" of 12%+ can fix a lot of problems.

    So, where do you go next week? Depends. JH may be the call but we have smaller rocks than they do, our rocks are just a heckuva lot sharper.

    Ya pay your money and ya take your chances, step right up sonny!

    Whoa. I was skiing at Red Lodge 15 yrs ago or and when my buddy and I got off the lift, the chair somehow got caught up in the around the guard of the bull wheel, causing it to bend then fly off towards my friend and I. Weirdest thing, just barely missed us, I actually pushed my friend out of the way.

    Red Lodge chairs may be sketchy, but I love that place and the tavern in town. Good place to spend New Years.
    Education must be the answer, we've tried ignorance and it doesn't work!
