    Hello from Wydaho

    Hi! New member from Idaho, right near the Wyoming border. I ski Grand Targhee (season pass), Teton Pass (backcountry), occasionally Jackson Hole, and Beartooth Pass/Beartooth Basin as much as I can in the spring/summer.

    Northern Rockies/Alberta Cheap, Deep, and Steep Resorts in Northwest USA

    So, I am thinking about a road-trip through Montana, Idaho, and Washington State.....but not necessarily limited to those states. Looking for Cheap, Deep, and Steep, so I will probably avoid the bigger resorts. Alpental, Baker, and Bridger look interesting. So does Apex in BC. What else...

    Northern Rockies/Alberta New lifts at Schweitzer

    I haven't been there but there is a lift at my home mountain, Mt. Rose, that has a similar lift. It's old and slow but it's also the only lift that runs to the top on windy days when the 6 pack detachables are closed. What do the Schweitzer aficionados think? Is new always better? Here's the link.

    Northern Rockies/Alberta Sun valley snowmaking vs vt snowmaking

    If I am skiing on baldy relying on snowmaking (eg no recent snow) would the experience be similar to skiing at a vermont area with snowmaking and no recent snow. Supposedly sun valley has state of the art equipment. Thanks for any useful info.

    Northern Rockies/Alberta Spokane area/Schweitzer

    My buddy and I do a trip to a different place each year. We try to find the more adventurous low-key non-resort type places and enjoy steeps and "hike-to" terrain. Due to ease of flights we have been mostly around SLC and Denver with one trip to Taos. This season we wanted to branch out a bit...
