    This storm was super bount for Bozo!!! only interesting thing was during my drive to Butte this morning for work, 8 F in 3 Forks, halfway up Cardwell Hill all the windows of my vehicle fogged up in seconds, looked at the temp and it was 36 F....must have passed the frontal boundary and the warm air fogged up on the cold car. It was 38 F on the divide over Homestake.....very strange

    No fucking shit. Seriously. I want to strangle our weatherman with my avalanche beacon. Big Sky reported 1 inch and that is probably a stretch. Yet, Jackson is getting nukes. Just south of Big Sky got something like 20" and there's now an avalanche warning.

    The only thing I'm buoyed by is there is still both a Winter Storm Warning and Winter Weather Advisory. http://www.accuweather.com/en/us/boz...arnings/334227

    Of course, if this keeps overpromising and underdelivering, I'm driving to Jackson tonight. Fuck it. This shit is terrible.

    Come check out Showdown!
    http://www.showdownmontana.com/
    Look at their webcams. Looking good. I know it's sure as hell not Jackson, but it's way closer to Bozeman if you wanna make some good turns.
    We're getting freaking hammered in this part of the state! It's been coming down non-stop since yesterday. Got about a foot at my house since I shoveled my drive late last night. That's probably close to 18" all together. Still going strong!

    I wanted to do that too, but at this point we gotta cut them some slack.

    Who can predict bullshit on a biblical scale? Fuck, I know I can't. Snow in Three Forks, Helena, Billings, West, Cooke, Missoula, Showdown, but nothing here in this perma-donut-hole? I give up, God hates us.

    I'd be laughing if I hadn't bought a season pass.

    Can I call my pass a donation and use it as a write-off for taxes this year? I want to at least use it for something.

    5" over 24 hours at Big Sky?

    I think this sums up the snow report and really the whole winter:

    Record-breaking storms miss Bozeman, likely no snowstorms in town in the near future

    This week, Missoula had one of its all-time greatest snowstorms. In Helena, a daily snowfall record that had been in place since 1885 was broken as 10 inches of new snow graced the town in 24 hours.
    Lost Trail Powder Mountain ski resort reported 20 new inches in one day, and 50 inches over two days. Billings, Harlowtown and Big Timber all got half a foot of snow or more.
    Meanwhile, not a measurable inch fell in Bozeman. What gives?
    “Bozeman had two things working against it,” Bob Hoenisch, a meteorologist with the National Weather Service, said Friday. “It’s south of that frontal boundary, and mountains to the west and southwest were blocking a lot of moisture from getting into the Gallatin Valley.”
    The boundary Hoenisch spoke of formed after a cold area set up over central and eastern Montana. Then, “a bunch of Pacific moisture was streaming in from the west,” and a boundary was created where they met. The boundary stretched from Missoula to Helena to Harlowtown to Billings. Snowfall was heaviest along that line.
    “It happens, but this was a pretty unique storm in the amount of moisture that fell along the boundary,” Hoenisch said.
    Between Tuesday and Thursday, Missoula got 20 inches of snow. Based on records dating back to 1893, that snowfall amount makes the storm one of the top seven ever recorded in the city.
    Hoenisch said he doesn’t expect any significant snowstorms in Bozeman in the near future.
    Mountains, however, are getting some snow. Since Thursday morning, the Lionhead area near West Yellowstone and the mountains near Cooke City got 11 inches to 15 inches of new snow, according to the Gallatin National Forest Avalanche Center.
    The southern and northern Madison ranges received snow, and mountains near Bozeman got 1 inch to 2 inches.
    A backcountry avalanche warning for the Lionhead area and the mountains around Cooke City was continued Friday.
    Bridger Bowl reported 10 inches of new snow in the past week.

    Yeah it sucks. But I had the day off so what did I do. Drove to work and went skiing.

    In reality it was pretty good, not the sickness we had expected but the 5-7" skied deep because of the thick nature of the snow. Firehole was great, 1st fork was great, Lone Tree face was great..

    Back to work today, we are going to make a big effort at the N. Summit. With all these S winds and thick snow, it should ski well if the winds are not too strong to run the tram.

    I would love to make lemonade but I got no choice but to just wait till it gets good. And by good for me I mean REALLY smooth perfect groomers at least and at that I'll count my blessings. I'll be extremely stoked to get my pass paid off and have minimal pain again.

    Would love to be out there even now instead of cunting, but already gone fucked myself trying to be overly optimistic. I still hope it's not the shittiest year of all time at Bridger.

    Big Sky was quite the surprise today and it dumped all day. Laps on Challenger were spectacular and even a few face shots to be had. The Tram had no line but it was sketchy all over. Gullies and Crons were nice, but turning my XXLs into swiss cheese was not so cool. We were even diverted onto Lone Moose sure to an electrical problem and it was great, if not heavy snow. Rain at the valley floor, but if this storm keeps up, tomorrow will be another great day.

    x2 Rain and 42F at 6:30 am this morning in the canyon, started absolutely puking at the conoco and kept it up basically all day. Sheddy was skiing great, Bacon Rind and Paradise especially.

    Thinking Bridger for the morning tomorrow. Anyone get up there today? Heard a rumor it was pretty decent.

    Yeah today was pretty awesome, I got the afternoon off, and also got stuck on Lone Moose. Fresh tracks on chair line the whole way down!

    Hope it keeps up, it was dumping on the drive home.

    Looks like another 4-6 overnight. When I left it was big fat soft flakes with not much wind.

    FWT was postponed until late March, with the current coverage, good call.

    Early morning today, going after more terrain in Headwaters. N. Summit skied real well yesterday with about 50+ people getting a lap in. Looks to be sunny/Ptly Cloudy today, tram line could be murder.

    A-Zs closed yesterday, could be Money!

    Basically all true. Snowfield was decent today, massive slide notwithstanding. Tears was deep, however.

    BTW.. Nice Dutch door, you homo. Jesus.
    Stay left.

    Ahhh, you like that eh? Built it with my own two hands, serves its purpose nicely and allows us to keep the riff raff on the other side where they belong.

    You want to hang out? Go to the bus station.
