    Hope you are right Y, probably depends on the numbers that show up on the "weekend memorable conditions" kind of a day.
    I have been in this State for 30 years and I am willing to admit that I am part of the problem.

    Days like that are a total cluster even without COVID. Hell, I've stopped going on the huge pow days because the chaos smothers the fun.

    RE: Boot pack from top of Dakota.

    I predict a skin track to the Summit in the future.

    I had a similar experience, albeit at one of the East Coast former-ASC properties...I was shocked they still had the photo on file. I was more shocked it wasn't until late March that I got yanked out of line and questioned as to whether or not it was really my pass.

    Re: actual response, a lot comes down to getting your minimum-wage employees to give a damn (both while at work and while off work—traditional employee social activities could easily become a serious operational problem with Covid floating around). If 3/4 of a department's line-level staff gets together for beverages and then it turns out that one of them was positive, isolating the remainder leaves you without a whole lot of available staff.

    Bozeman took three years to completely turn me off from in-bounds skiing. Touring set-up will be popping with all of this extra $$$ that ain't going to big sky or bridger

    Dang that's some real crusty shit. BB is easily top ten ski area for terrain in NA. Personally it's in my top 3 for the US.

    Ditto. Usually all I have to do is go skiing somewhere else to remind me how good we have it here.

    Yeah I've been away for a season and I still miss it, although I make trips back(BB not BS). Even when I get crusty about crowds etc I just remember that I almost always just hike and tour using lift access and it's pretty easy to get away from people although I get that's not some peoples jam. I mean aside from the morning lineup if you avoid the slushmans junk show it's pretty easy to avoid crowds. Or just roll the dice on the west side��.

    I'm sure no one else is planning on just touring this season.....

    #1. Please try not to die.

    #2. Kids these days have such a limited attention span. Just to encourage a discussion, how did Bozeman do that?

    I sure am glad I got my BC gnar hunting out of the way for the most part in my 20s and came out alive. One hell ride on the bed surface/depth hoar/rocks was enough for me.

    Hippy pow is your friend. So are chair lifts and ski patrol working their balls off in negative temps to keep us alive.

    I'm fairly jaded, and I would still say BB midweek is about as fun as resort skiing gets. Busy weekends suck, but I barely waited in a line last year midweek during the holiday period.

    Yeah, midweek 3-5" days are about as good as it gets. Outside of epic powder days on the weekends, it's still never bad when you compare to Utah, Colorado, California.

    Anyone know if Discovery Bike Park is open? Everything online is super vague about being open until Mid October. No update on their voicemail since the 11th. Nothing about a closure on facebook or instagram.

    Yup, that’s why I’m jealous!

    But I’ll be road riding again this week.

    The Better Half was up at Georgetown Lake the weekend before this past one and went up to Disco to check it out and it was evidently a ghost town (I guess they close the gate at the bottom of the road?) so they hiked up just to see it. My guess is that if they were closed weekend after Labor Day then they're done for the season. Just a guess...

    Never been to the Disco bike park, but I think it's accessed from the Philipsburg side, not the ski area base. https://goo.gl/maps/QRs41kgRf9LVaphj9

    It’s open. Their IG posted a photo of a huge line yesterday. They’re open until the 11th, but will go the 18th or weather allows.
