    I am not sure the governor has the authority to shut down the Interstate or prevent travel into MT, that seems like a federal issue to me.

    Somebody should change 'park' to Montana.

    If my Mom hadn't moved to UT last summer, I'd be up there with the family staying at her place and taking your powder too. She wouldn't survive this alone I don't think, so maybe a small percentage are coming to MT to be closer to relatives. Maybe most are white-flight from NYC.

    Let's get this thread back on track.

    Did a long (for me) 13-mile/7k vert loop in Hyalite yesterday. Was a nice reminder of how good we have it with that terrain in our backyard. For anyone that can still get up there before they close the road - N faces are perfect. E is hit or miss. S is best avoided as a downhill. Not sure on W faces.

    Sunrise (that old crown is quite large):

    Sketchy climbing conditions on S faces forced an adjustment to ski this headwall:

    Thanks! It was a bit under 7k vert. Hardest climb was going from the base of the Y up to the Elephant summit. That’s not normally a tough one, but I was pretty fried by then

    Its hilarious that the airport is still open but plz dont shut down my interstate. I might want to escape eventually.

    KTO! Nice tour! Saw yer guys' tracks on alex Lowe fron the top of blackmore today.
    Hells yea!

    How bout some fuckery? Skied at ole bb the other day and this dog showed up mid run without ANNNYYONNEEE around.... called one of 4 numbers on the collar and dude picked up. His roomie took huskie out and lil dog bolted... where I found him was far af away from there. Got to take this doggy for a sick d route lap while waiting for owner bro to pick him up from the top of PK. Good dog!

    And yes, the only way to ski out the 8% rd any time of the year is to have a stolen girlfriend beverage.

    That brief break in the cloud cover this morning sure did a number on the snow. Went from powder to mashed potatoes up in Hyalite real quick. I was about 20 minutes too late.

    Chasing the prior days ridgeline corn tracks. It's looking like powder for the coming weekend.

    Oh man 2x you went out there and didn't get it? Hopefully you got the Y or something else in as a consolation?

    Another crew actually skied it while we did the Y. I couldn’t see much evidence of a lot of sluff, but they were in the middle of it while we were headed up to the Blackmore pass so my vantage point wasn’t great.

    I did a super mellow little tour up at BB this morning. Definitely far fewer folks relative to the last few times I have made it up. Overwhelmingly, people were doing a good job of staying a safe distance apart.

    ^^ While I must say, this mystery skier appears to have skied this perfectly, it seems a little aggro for my taste given all the circumstances right now. Maybe this is their equivalent of a blue square? Have fun and be safe everybody!
    I'd say it was a solid double blue square.

    Skinned up to the ramp today and popped into Wolverine bowl. I found stability on north facing aspects and excellent creamy snow up high.

    East faces were already sun affected by noon.

    Several folks were setting steep skin tracks underneath Hidden and NW passage. Made me sweat profusely just looking at those sharp angles. Lots of uncontrolled shit overhead too.

    People have such short memories. < 75 days ago we had what was called a historically poor snow pack structure and were in a major avalanche cycle.

    Granted the snow has had a lot of time to adjust and strengthen but those base layers of shit are still there, just very difficult to access.

    I really hope people play it smart and that the sun does not come out.
    Ooof!

    Most anything steep I skied (E facing) this morning at Bridger would sluff on the recent crust layer. There's lots of evidence of the new snow sliding/sluffing naturally too.

    Great times skiing pow on the un-groomers today at Bridger. Densest snow Iíve skied in a while. Tip dive was happening on my 118mm underfoot pow skis!

    Not to bitch, but lots of folks arenít picking up their dogís shit out there. Come on! I saw a big pile smeared all over the skin track.

    The place was packed, but most folks I saw were keeping a decent distance. Letís hope for community peace and sanity through skiing.

    Damn, where have you been skiing that today was dense? I was up there around 8am and it was the lightest snow I've skied in a while. Admittedly, I've been out less than a lot of guys here lately.

    Can confirm that great times were had up there, though. The mountain's in terrific shape right now.

    My wife hit a load of dog shit a few years ago when we were skin-skiing a short downhill. That was pretty much the end for those skins.

    Did a quick Schlasmans lap this am. The snow was excellent. Go get it before the sun comes out. Bridger ran a groomer all the way out to Schlasmans base too. Made for a nice and easy to skin in and ski-out.

    All the dog shit I've seen at ole bb has been easily avoidable. If yer dog shits or peed on the track, make an effort to move it outta the way. I dont think poopoo should ruin a pair of skins though....

    Ya, yesterday was reactive until a point seemed like. I got some good settlements on n faces and saw one soft slab- 15" x 30 ft crown. Hope its settled out meow.

    Definitely not dense unless u were skiing a sluff pile. I'd say perfectly right side up w 5" of 6% on the top.

    KTO! Think you guys were just behind us on the slushies up this morning. Easy to hear people in the milk jug. Been good skiing out there.
    Here's a pic of bobbybilly from a couple days ago...
