It's basically due south of the parking lot driveway up top (so get out of the car and walk mostly perpendicular to the road, away from the driveway/parking lot); you can see it on Google Maps satellite view.

    There may be other options as well, but I've moved to lower elevation and don't know what the current status is. That one little patch is usually good for a few turns any time you can get to it.
    ...and the Beartooth Pass is closing to wheeled motor traffic for the season tomorrow morning, Oct. 5. So while there will still be skiable snow up there, it probably isn't worth the effort to get there.

    There may be meadow-skipping opportunities elsewhere in the state, though, if the forecast is anything near correct (heck, there may be more than meadow-skipping, but unconsolidated snow over boulders is a bit dicey).

    Facebook plea for donations from Beartooth Basin. GoFundMe link here.

    We've been successful in many ways the past couple seasons - but finances have not been one of them.
    We enjoy being owned and operated by local ski enthusiasts, and not some big corporate entity. We would rather measure success in smiles than the bottom line.
    The Basin has survived many seasons without turning a profit, but this year we have to put a lot of $$ into our operating infrastructure to keep this place alive.
    Consider a donation to help save the last best summer ski hill on the planet. Check out our crowdfunding link or DM us with questions.
    Thanks, everyone!

    YES! Definitely go support them instead of your Boyne/CrossHarbor/Vail Resorts corporate overlords. I <3 Beartooth Basin.

    I missed out on making it out to MT this winter, so perhaps I can make it up this summer if I can get my act together. Harry: You better make it out to the Beartooths this year, foo! Place is off the hook.

    I might take a lap up to the Pass. Bored outta my gourd bringing back the knee. Might be a tough camping scene for me though. Would have to bring extra ganj.
    Weather dependent too. Still rainy down here and likely snowy up high.. I do love to party up there though. Part of my soul, that place.

    I'd like to make it up sometime in the second half of June but my schedule is a little busy this summer. Also hard to motivate with still having lift served here at home.

    Really need some redemption after getting shut out last summer!

    we were thinking this idea too. will keep in touch as the week progresses

    DJ holla if you want to coordinate from this zone too.

    also side story but since it's been rainy AF here we watched the last 2 of 3 lord of the rings this past long weekend and we realized Scott looks like Theoden, the King of Rohan

    Fuck I could use some skiing but it looks like 13 hours from Seattle? I don't think I can make that work this weekend.

    Beartooth Pass conditions?

    Wow, looks like they got 12-14” last night. They might not get it opened in time for this weekend (both highway and ski area).

    The weekend after this one might be a good one to hit the pass. Looks like some t-storms are in order for the opening weekend?

    Fuck yeah. I can drive it's just a long solo trip.

    Not certain about Adams yet. I'm cleaning up some messes I made in the last week. I'm trying though

    I’m possibly in, depending on when. I’ve spent months of my life up there and want to go back. What about Fathers Day weekend?

    But....that's the easiest time to ask for a trip away! Or at least for me it is. Anyways, just wanted to start the date-picking process

    June 21,22,23 - 3 weeks from tomorrow... I'll be ready for a throwdown. Better for me to get my camping game dialed (for a gimp).
