    2012 SW Montana Conditions, Stoke and Whatev Thread

    Well ... turns out that Colorado, the Tetons and most other larger areas can have a lone thread. Skiing in SW Montana is too serious to have its own thread, apparently.

    That said, use this lil' guy for all things not Bridger.

    ---------------------------------------------------------------

    Word is that Big Sky and Moonlight will be the place to be tomorrow. By all acounts, it was nuking up there today.

    Other bits I heard today; Marx was open briefly and again closed after a secondary snowpack test yielded the stability terrible. Also, the tram is unlikely to be open due to the aforementioned horrible stability.

    The interwebz also said that Moonlight opened headwaters and Lone Tree today with more runs opening as stability allows.

    No idea what's doing in the backcountry; Beehive, Hyalite, Taylors Fork or otherwise.

    Considering that Shed is largely south-facing, my guess is that there is no snow over there, aside from what fell today. You'll be waiting awhile.

    And this one is for Soft Booter, but the word is that the Tram is unlikely to open tomorrow due to the horrendous snow stability.

    Can't speak for the Really Big Sky but at MLB.

    Lone Tree opened last weekend. Lone Tree face probably tomorrow.

    Headwaters has yet to open, I don't work tomorrow (much needed days off) but the crew is trying to get Zone 3 open. 3 forks, Dead Goat area. No snow to speak of in Zones 0, 1 and 2 due to large, to the ground slides and wind erosion. Things are looking better, we now are sitting on a 40" base at the Lookout Ridge snow plot.

    I can say that right now the Big Sky folks are being understandably conservative with the terrain off the Tram. Stability tests all over Lone Mountain have yielded all sorts of results. The SWE we picked up today could cause some eyeopening results over the next few days if the wind picks up a bit.

    IF the Griz qb could have tossed that 3rd down pass oh say 10 yards further at the end you fellas would be coming with me on the 7th to Texas to duke it out On the bright side at least only one of us has to go to the National Championship in Texas and I'm sure that will bring tons of snow while I am guzzling booze and flailing at the broads in Tayhoss.

    Didn't everybody already move here after that powder magazine story about this shithole being the best ski town in North America?

    What the fuck do all you guys log on here for, to be the internet pow stash police? For Christ sake, there is nothing secret about Montana anymore, get over it. It was sold out long before TGR forums even exsisted, and will be continued to be marketed by local businesses and ski areas as "the last best place" with over 350, 400 inches of "cold smoke", and "no lift lines" with "untracked for days after the storm" touted in every major ski publication the world over, and all the rest of the b.s. about rugged individualism, "extreme skiing" and cowboys, so what the fuck is the problem? Go complain to all the marketers in numerous industries that work day and night year round to try and convince people to spend their vacations in this bumfuck shithole instead of Colorado or Utah. Go complain to the Governor or the Chamber of Commerce or something.

    Some people spend time on the forums because they love skiing and want to help each other out/meet up/discuss conditons, weather, snowpack, bitch about the fact that it sucks balls right now, whatever. Y'all should start a new thread about how butthurt you are that some Joeys beat you to your gay little stash one weekend last year, or about how that line on Slushmans really wouldn't be that long if nobody ever spoke of how rad Saddle Peak was on TGR.

    Or, you could just go to the state line nearest you and set up a Checkpoint. Ask all newcomers for their papers, make sure to turn back the Midwestern Hoards, the Portland Posers, and especially the Vermonters.

    Hyalite: 12-18 inches of new as of yesterday, multiple natural avalanches observed and heard. I was in the Main Fork, haven't heard about Flanders yet.

    Wow that's some real conviction you stand by your decision with. So much so that you deleted your post, but there it is quoted in my above post.

    POTD. Montana is not bumfuck Kyrgystan in 1965.

    I remember getting yelled at about 20 years ago for taking some Midwestern marks and tricks and trick-ass marks into Beehive Basin, like I had slaughtered a secret golden goose. It was basically a goddamn roadside attraction even then.

    Get over yourselves, you aren't a bunch of Skittle Jeremiah Johnsons. Or move to the Next Last Best Place.

    Tram remained closed today thanks to another Big Sky windpocalypse. We can look forward to a nice slab on everything whenever it opens back up. As for Sheddy, I don't know if anyone took a close look down Chicken Bowl after riding away from Marx, but it is FUCKED. You know Dude Park and Packsaddle are fucked too. It's probably not gonna open but, I WANT TO BELIEVE!!!! Lone Tree face was knee to thigh deep, and made me miss the Highway/17Green feeding frenzy (thank god).


    For all the chatter about the Nazi's at the MLB shack: You'd think they took a shit on your teddy bear for all the crying I have had to listen to. Jesus Christ, just shut the fuck up already. Any title bestowed on you by the rabble in the plaza means absolutely fuck all. NO ONE CARES. It sucked anyway.
