    TR; this last weekend at Bridger

    Saturday, so here we go after a little confusion. woke up early and got to bridger at 7:45. hiked up PK and got slowed down close to the top. made three laps on the fingers and south boundary with great conditions. Blazing trail up the fingers for the first of the season. fresh track on EVERYTHING. here we go.

    Clarf at the top of fingers

    Got up early and our crew of 5 blazed trail to the top of the ridge in knee to waist deep blower. then we decided to traverse all the way to south boundary and ski the jobs and south boundary. EXTREMELY sketchy hike, it was insane at times.

    this is Clarf, Blue Bombastic on his back again. possibly has not come off since birth.

    Leroy skining but finding out since Clarf and i had made the bootpack a day earlier it was a bombproof SOB.

    All in all this weekend was amazing considering it is still October!

    Awesome day, and great to meet you guys.

    Looks like you had some fun over the weekend as well.

    I dont' have any action shots, but took a couple decent scenics, I'll post em up when I get a chance.

    Oh, and Lars, I wasn't going crazy, I went to the doctor today and I have some mystery respitory illness. Fucking sweet. Oh well, might just have to take a break for a few days and rest. With a start like this, somehow I think there might be a few good days later in the season too.

    Nice fucking work man! Good to see some stoke from Montana.

    Does anyone ever ski Sacajawea? It seemed like a pretty dope run when I hiked it this past summer. The only problem is getting there I guess; a sled would be required.

    Yes. There are some huge lines out there too... the northern bridgers are often referred to as mini alaska. Expect some TR's this year for sure. Access can be tough without a sled, seeing as the road to fairy lake is closed when we get some decent snow.

    Yeah, access can be rough in the summer too... if your driving in a Nissan 240sx with 5 inches of clearanse. One hell of a ride.

    God damn... I really want to come back out here for winter break.

    The skiing is shitty in the Northern Bridgers. Nothing to see out there. I would go to Hylite. Workinforturns this weekend was the shit. Great to see you back on skis.

    That doesn't get plowed at all, right? How far can you make it up the canyon before needing sleds?

    Wish i was there

    As Lars's (workinforturns) former high school teacher I have two things to say:

    1. I am jealous- it is fun to see you cut your teeth on the same lines that i did as a college student.

    2. Your english and use of metephors is atrocious- what would your assistant principal for a mother say?


    Remember- Big rocks don't move! Go around them this year!

    Happy tracks

    the ice climbers usually keep the road pretty well punched in. you will need good clearance and 4wd, but it is usually possible to reach at least the reservoir all winter.

    Damn, I miss the Bridgers.

    How deep is the snowpack up high? I would think traversing into Job 1 would be an issue this early in the season.
