    Big Sky Conditions?

    Any locals in big sky that can attest to exactly how bad condition are right now? Is there anything to ski?

    I have a trip planned for the week before Christmas but it looks like basically nothing is open and not much snow coming so trying to decide if I should cancel it.

    Post up here and you should get an answer. I'm in Missoula, so no first hand info from me. We are expecting a decent snow through this weekend. Maybe wait for Monday to see what transpires from this weekend.

    I'd wait to see what develops with this system by midweek and if BS still sucks maybe change to Whitefish? Looks like most of the snow will be falling in north and west Montana but you never know.

    By "the week before Christmas do you mean Monday the 13th (next week) or the week that includes Christmas (Monday the 20th) 2 weeks out. The current forecast is just hazy and ambiguous enough that a lot could change in a week.

    With that said, A LOT needs to change in the next 10 days. To open significant terrain Big Sky needs at least 3 feet of snow.
    I have been in this State for 30 years and I am willing to admit that I am part of the problem.

    The 10" that fell will be a great deal of help and BSSP will probably pull the trigger on Challenger. Going to be a lot of lurking sharks, ski lightly.

    ETA: Well its the Sunday before the start of the 1st big week, forecast looks promising (50% chances of snow all week). Coverage is still thin and its probably too late for refunds anyway.Make the best of it.
